Dryden's first stem cell treatment showing promising results!

A short time ago Addie's Angels was able to make a significant contribution to the 'Dreaming for Dryden' fund to assist with expenses for Dryden's stem cell treatment. To see the fantastic results thus far (Dryden is crawling!!!) and find out even more about Dryden, visit: https://www.facebook.com/DreamingForDryden

Meet Dryden...

As you can see, Dryden is an adorable and happy one year old! Dryden has Spina Bifida (which effects his nerves as they are forming and doesn't allow for proper development) and often causes trouble with mobility. Along with Spina Bifida, Dryden has hydrocephalus (fluid build up in the brain). Born in July of 2012, Dryden has had 5 surgeries to date, one to correct his spine, two brain surgeries to place and revise a shunt that regulates the fluid in his brain, and two others that go along with having Spina Bifida. Addie's Angels was able to assist Dryden's family by purchasing a ZipZac II, Zchair to help him get around.

Meet Callie...

Callie is off to start her first semester of college. In 2012 Callie was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease called Juvenile Dermatomyositis as well as Multiple Acyl-COA dehydrogenase diffidence. These diseases both affect the muscles in the body and keep them from properly converting foods into energy in her body. The combination of these ailments have made it difficult for Callie to get around at times. Addie's Angels was able to assist Callie and her family by purchasing a new wheelchair lift for her vehicle and now she is back on the move as a college freshman. Good luck Callie!

Meet Angel --- Fall 2010

  Angel is a local 1st grader who has several limb differences. In the past it has been difficult for Angel to keep pace with some of her classmates when doing cutting activities, because it was difficult for her to manipulate regular scissors. Addie's Angels, Inc is thrilled to be able to donate an adaptive scissors set to Angel. Now she is speeding through her cutting activities in school just like all the other students!
