My name is Carmen Doakes and I started this organization a little over one year ago in hopes that my daughter would one day walk again. My daughter was born with Tibial Hemimelia, a condition that causes partial absence of the tibia - there by making it impossible to walk without the necessary surgery. I was initially told by many orthopedic doctors after looking at my daughter, that amputation was the only solution & it wasn’t until my own research lead to me to Dr. Paley that I found hope at a hospital in West Palm Beach, Florida. Dr. Paley confirmed that his methods would indeed be able to treat Jordyn and that she would one day walk. I knew at that moment that I would dedicate my life to educating & helping other families who were facing similar challenges. In a very short time this organization has grown into a multi-functional outreach program helping to bring families and various other types of support systems together in order to aid children with all types of needs. It has been a true blessing to have been touched and able to touch so many lives through this journey.
It is my vision and the vision of this organization to continue to grow, educate, and help bring families and communities together for the betterment of our children & our future.
