In our district one of our paraprofessional's daughter Angeline was born with a debilitating condition called Brittle Bone disease also called Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type III. She has been through countless surgeries throughout her life. Since she was born, she has been going to the hospital every 16 weeks to get treatment. At the moment, their 20 year old van is on its last leg and her wheelchair she has outgrown. The van is a 1998, Chevy Mark III, the air conditioning is inoperable and every week it is in the shop. The family is afraid that one day its lift will break and hope that will not happen while AJ is on it.
The Dziegrenuk's live pay check to pay check and do not receive any type of governmental assistance. In fact, they have been denied assistance because they just meet the income guidelines for denial of benefits. AJ is a beautiful, intelligent 14 year old girl, who will be entering high school next year. We pray for some kind hearts that will hear our prayers for a better standard of living for Angeline.
