A portion of the proceeds from the "Bokeh" shirt will go to help Quinn Merritt get the surgery she needs. To learn more about Quinn, read the paragraph below (written by Zack Arias)...
When Meg was eight years old her family met a young 20 something year old guy named Roger through their church. Roger was looking for a place to live and Meg's family needed a little extra income to help out with rent each month. Roger, undaunted by the prospect of moving in with a family with four small kids, one with special needs, moved into the extra bedroom in their little house in Decatur, Georgia and quickly became a part of the family. Meg still refers to Roger as her "big brother". He was very close to Meg's family and so, when he got married and started having kids of his own, he named his 2nd daughter, Quinn, after Meg's family. About two months ago we got news that Quinn, who is now 14, was diagnosed with a genetic condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (a connective tissue disorder). The EDS also caused Quinn to have a tethered spinal cord, severe scoliosis, and a chiari malformation in the brain. (A chiari malformation is a serious neurological disorder where the bottom part of the brain, the cerebellum, descends out of the skull and crowds the spinal cord, putting pressure on both the brain and spine and causing many symptoms.) She is in need of surgery to untether her spinal cord, and then decompression surgery to relieve the pressure in her brain. She spends every day with severe pain, back spasms, muscle cramping, and is unable to stand upright. She has lost her hearing in her left ear, lost the ability to read as her vision is blurry, has frequent seizures, and insomnia due to the pain. There are very few neurosurgeons who understand the connection between the EDS and the tethered cord/chiari malformation in the U.S., but her family has found a fabulous neurosurgeon in Washington, D.C who is very familiar. Unfortunately, their insurance company has denied her surgery because the neurosurgeon is out of state. Roger has a new job with benefits that kick in Jan. 1, 2013. Unfortunately, the doctor is still out-of-network, and there is a $20,000 deductible that must be met. We want to help her meet that deductible and then some! Thanks for your support!
