In 2007 Destiny was pronounced deaf. In 2008 She was diagnosed with a heart defect and needed heart surgery. Through her years she has over come many test and surgeries. She is of small stature, she is 54 inches tall and 60 pounds at 15 years old. She recently under went a spinal fusion which consisted of rods and screws. Destiny had the worst scoliosis known as sigmoid curvature. She is 3 months out from surgery and the rods are not compliant and there is a possibility she may be allergic to the nickel in her back. She is currently in physical therapy, allergist, and taking several trips back and forth to specialists in Indianapolis and Ohio. Destiny also has to see other specialists such as genetics, endocrinologist, orthopedics, cardiologists, audiologists, and ENT on a regular basis. Destiny’s mother had to leave her job in May of 2016 to care for her while she has been recovering. Since then Destiny’s mother, step father, and brother were basically uprooted from their home in Indiana to move back to NY to be closer to family so they had more help with all of their needs. All leaving behind everything they have known or had for the last 10 years. Destiny’s mother still hasn’t been able to return to work as an LPN due to still needing to care for all of Destiny’s needs while trying to raise her 7 year old son as well. With all this said her step father is working 2 jobs to try to make ends meet. But after all these surgeries, and appointments the bills are so outrageous and they have lost their insurance through the tough decision of moving back to NY where Destiny can be cared for and helped by family as well. Back in February of 2014 Destiny’s mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a double mastectomy. After many surgeries and appointments this has also left their family with many unpaid medical bills. Any help to this family is so appreciated, but not only do they need your help financially they need many prayers as they continue to go through the many trials that come with Destiny’s disabilities.
