Gifts of Hope
Welcome to MY world....
Two beautiful little girls Grace and Hope, that were born with less than a chance.
Born with a hereditary condition, called CAH-( Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia) I , nor any one in my family knew I was a carrier of.-1 in 18,000.
I am a carrier of CAH, but my children are AFFECTED, if only they had been carriers as well..
This condition restricts everything they do, as any kind of PAIN they endure is felt to the extreme.
SAFETY is always a major concern, and ILLNESS is monitored, like a death watch.
For more information on this RARE condition:
I have some information on the disease Grace and Hope have in our FACTS page,
Or go to to your browser and type CAH, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, adrenal shock, hydroxylase-21, all have lots of information on the disease.
The lives of my two girls have been shortened, as the medicine they must take For the REST OF THEIR LIVES- just TO LIVE, is a steroid. which promotes growth to the extreme.-(see link): steroid-cah
As well, as their salt-wasting CAH, Grace ad Hope have AG this is a disturbance that will come to haunt us as the girls get older, and become aware of their sexual personalities.-(as well psychological ,and emotional elements)-which in turn lead to stress.
STRESS is a major factor in the girls' health, as their adrenal gland-which is the "Stress Handler" of our bodies is not complete in theirs. This goes hand in hand with their pain receptors. PAIN=STRESS, STRESS=PAIN
Travel to the specialists, (as we live in a small town, with medical facilities that have limited knowledge of the condition) as well as accommodations during emergencies, and every day "top condition" ( so no accidents occur) toys, equipment,and clothing (that is germ-free) have an added price tag.
Grace and Hope's (This) site is for those that would like to know about this condition, and people that live with it. If you can ,for Grace and Hope,
a gift of a gracious donation, no matter how big or small would be appreciated.
Please help us to offset these costs that will concur for their lifetime.
We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
