Lily and Kaeli
Kaeli has been little sister Lily's best friend and biggest advocate since day one. Complications in utero left Lily without oxygen, permanently damaging her brain and resulting in a severe form of cerebral palsy that affects her ability to move and speak.
Funds provided by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals help Gillette Children's offer a multidisciplinary approach to care. Lily has truly benefitted from the collaborative effort of a team of specialists. To express her gratitude, Kaeli has raised more than $7,500 for the hospital that continues to help her sister improve.
In an unforeseen turn of events, Kaeli became a Gillette patient herself at age 10. She began tripping frequently and was diagnosed with femoral torsion, meaning her bones twist inward at the hip and cause her feet to point inward. Major corrective surgery is a possibility, but this family has complete confidence in a team they know well.
