★Meet 7-year-old Chelsea. She was born with craniosynostosis multiple and so far, has had 43 surgeries. Craniosynostosis is a rare type of multisuture synostosis, in which more than one suture (joint) between a baby’s skull bones fuses too early. This congenital (present at birth) condition causes problems with brain growth and head shape. This is because the head stops growing in the areas where the sutures have fused, and expands abnormally in other areas.
Chelsea is home schooled and has therapies at home and is nonverbal.
Ryan’s Foundation was able to help Chelsea’s family by paying their mortgage. In turn, the family was able to move forward with plans to make Chelsea’s room more accessible.
Ryan’s Foundation will do whatever it takes to save the child, the family, and to live out our mission to never say no. God Bless Chelsea and her family.
