I am asking for as many people who will send cards to my 12 year old grand daugher. she was a budding olympian for 2016 gymnastics, she developed "severs" in May of 2012 which is a growth injury due to her sport, she was in a cast 2 times since and numerous visits to PT etc, etc, the pain just got worse in her leg, she had developed "CRPS" cronic regional pain syndrome, basicly, constant pain, over the year she has had PT for 5 times a week, she has not put her foot on the ground, or wore a shoe since May. cut a long story short, her only recourse was a specialist in Boston MA for treatment lasting between 3 to 6 weeks today my daughter sent a picture of Lilly with a shoe on both feet (she kept it on 30 mins) and had her foot on the ground for a short time, this a major.
Please send her card of encourgement as I know she is in lots of pain .
thank you friends.
the address in Boston is
287 Cresent Street,
Waltham, MA 02453
please let her know you are grandmas friends.
Found a nice card for her, Pat. So sorry for her. Hope her spirits are up and she is soon able to wear both shoes anytime she wants.
