Nathan Scott Baume was born on June 18th, 2014 with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) Type 3, also known as Brittle Bone Disease. OI Type 3 is the most severe type among children who survive the neonatal period. Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) Type 3 is a rare disease that causes weak bones that break easily. OI can also cause many other problems such as weak muscles, brittle teeth, short stature and hearing loss. We were informed Nathan had Osteogenesis Imperfecta while he was still in utero, although we had not yet learned what type of OI he had, his limbs were much shorter than average and he was showing many fractures and extreme bowing of his legs. Nathan was born with many fractures including breaks on his upper left arm, ribs and many fractures and deformities throughout his lower limbs. Nathan will need many different medical procedures and treatments his entire life. Nathan receives infusions of Pamidronate every two months to treat bone fragility. It is unknown if Nathan will be able to walk, and he will most likely need a wheelchair and other large medical purchases throughout his life. Because there aren’t medical professionals in the Kooteneys with enough experience to handle Type 3 OI, We must travel for his treatments and or to see experts multiple times a year. His medical expenses have already started to accumulate and will continue to occur throughout his life.

Any sort of donation to help with Nathan's needs & medical expenses will be greatly appreciated by the Baume family.

Thank-you and God bless.
