MEET TREY

Trey is a beautiful and sweet 2 year old with Proteus Syndrome; his leg is severely affected and doctors have scheduled to amputate his left leg on Sept 19, 2013. We are raising $5000 to assist his young family with the associated medical expenses.

Trey is a very strong & determined little 2 year old! He knows his alphabet, shapes; he can count to 18 and even knows how to spell his name! There is nothing that can bring this sweet baby down. He is absolutely beautiful inside and out.

He was born with a rare genetic condition call Proteus Syndrome. Only 200 people in the world have his condition.

ABOUT PROTEUS SYNDROME

Proteus syndrome can affect any part of the body but commonly affects the bones and skin. Overgrowth of a bone can cause orthopedic problems, and overgrowth of the skin can cause cosmetic and other concerns. Less commonly, individuals with Proteus syndrome have lung problems that require monitoring. Many children and adults with Proteus syndrome have normal intelligence and have good general health. Children and adults with Proteus syndrome are at risk to get a type of blood clot called a “DVT,” or deep vein thrombosis, which can cause a serious problem called a pulmonary embolism. It is important for doctors caring for people with Proteus syndrome to be aware of this risk.

It is important to realize that every person with Proteus syndrome is different and that no two people with this condition will have the same medical concerns.

LEG AMPUTATION SURGERY

Doctors have recommended to amputate little Trey's left leg that is affected by his Proteus Syndrome. His leg is 4.5 inches longer than the other; his left foot is a size 9 and the other a 5. His amputation surgery is scheduled for September 19, 2013.

His mom will need to take time off from work to help Trey recover, to learn to use his prosthetic leg and to support him in every way possible. She is truly a remarkable and strong young woman.
