Bexlee is a sassy 2.5 year old who was diagnosis before she was born with Osteogenisis Imperfecta, also known as Brittle Bone Disease.
When Bexlee was born she had suffered 11 in-utero fractures and she has already had a total of 12 broken bones in her short life. She has had 2 surgeries to have telescoping rods placed in her femurs to act as internal splints and will soon have rods placed in her tibias as well. She uses a wheelchair and a walker, goes to physical therapy, and needs IV medicine every 6 months to help with bone pain and lower risk of breaking. She will always need help with simple tasks, but she makes up for any physical challenge with her awesome personality.
See, I told you you couldn’t help but fall in love.
We are so excited to have the opportunity to help Bexlee and her family next year. A portion of every January Feel Great in 8 Challenge entry and every sponsor donation will go directly to her family. (Read more about that here).
So, how can you help?
* Help spread the word about Feel Great in 8. You could make a lasting difference in someones life and help us give more to Bexlee.
* Have a business, or know of a business that would be interested in becoming a sponsor? Sponsors also get the opportunity to advertise to over 100,000 of Feel Great in 8’s readers and fans. See the sponsorship level and benefits below. You can also checkout this page and email me if you are interested!
* Donate directly to Bexlee. At the bottom of the sponsor page is a link where you can donate any amount to Bexlee and her family. 100% of these donations will be given directly to her family.
Thank you so much for being part of our goal to do more good. None of this would be possible without you!
