Hello, I’m Yasmina. I’m 21 years old. I suffer from achondroplasia. Achondroplasia is a disorder of bone growth that prevents the changing of cartilage (particularly in the long bones of the arms and legs) into bone. It is characterized by dwarfism and can cause health complications such as interruptions in breathing, obesity, recurrent ear infections, and an exaggerated inward curve of the lumbar spine. My legs have hurt so much since I was a kid that I can’t even handle the pain now, but as I got older, solutions were found for this case. I need 3 surgeries that will involve an external fixator and 6 skewers. The fixator is the solution to my problem. The external fixator and skewers will be put in my leg to straighten the bone and lengthen it. Your donations will be used for the external fixator, skewers, and hospital fees. One of the most important things you can do on this earth is to let people know they are not alone. A small amount of money makes all the difference. Be a part of the breakthrough and make someone’s dream come true. Give so others can live. Your contribution can achieve a solution. Life is an echo. What you send out comes back. Help today, because tomorrow you may be the one who needs help. I deserve better days. That’s why your money will be the reason for my happiness in the future. Every penny counts.
