Olive's Growing Needs

Olive Marie was born in 2016. Due to complications suffered during birth, she is diagnosed with Hypoxic Ischemia Encephalopathy and Cerebral Palsy. This, however, has not stopped her. She has a miracle fighter’s spirit and lights the lives of every person she meets. She has benefited tremendously from the health insurance offered to U.S. military members, as her father is a member of the Armed Forces. As she now grows, though, she is requiring different equipment that will train her to walk, which is not typically authorized fully by the insurance because walking is not “medically necessary.” Future needs will likely include the Hart Orthosis device out of the UK (a trial version is pictured)—which the Mitchell Thorp Foundation has graciously agreed to assist in funding—, a wheelchair accessibility van/vehicle to transport her safely in her wheelchair, and similar devices. We are now fundraising for her wheelchair lift and transfer seat for their vehicle to transport her safely as she continues to grow. Thank you for helping to meet Olive Mari's needs.
