The Story

15 surgeries in four years for my son Levi and the solution didn't exist. So momma invented it. Join me in a massive movement of people who have a passion to help people by solving a problem for people who deal with pain.   

I'm humbled by the "you're an incredible mom" comments, but I'm telling you, you would go to the lengths of inventing something too. Because this is what mommas do. Whether it's storm the principals office about a bully in school, or having to be held back in the bleachers when your kid gets tackled, or inventing a new medical device to relieve their pain. It's all the same. It's all a momma bear's fight for her cub. We all know that feeling. It's an incredibly intense drive to destroy whatever hurts them. I'm not a better mom, I just had a unique situation. I'm fighting exactly like you would. This fight just requires a lot more help. It takes a village. I fight with you and you fight with me. 

Support this movement to bring a device to market that will help thousands of kids who suffer.

UPDATE!!

Progress has been so exciting lately!  We are continuing to perfect the design of the LECS, build broad provisional patents, and will soon be on our way to Miami to sign contracts to start the clinical trials!  I can't believe how fast everything is moving.  It just goes to show that there's a reason and a purpose for this device.  I dream of my device being used in hospitals around the world and on children who need it.  Stay tuned!  So many big announcements coming!  :)

Levi update...

I'm so blown away by the incredible outpouring of love and support we've received.  My little boy is so loved and that's overwhelming to me.  Thank you.

On Wednesday the 2nd, Levi had spine surgery to drain a cyst that was found inside his spinal column.  We are hoping that it was the cause of some of the extreme bladder spasms that he's dealt with.  I wish I could show you all what a spasm looks like.  I probably could, but those moments of intense pain are pretty horrible and I want to protect Levi's privacy, but it would definitely help people understand why I went to the extreme measures of inventing something to relieve that pain.  
Since surgery on Wednesday, he's not bounced back like they expected.  We are taking every day slowly and going at his pace.  It's very difficult.  This is his 9th surgery in 2016 and it shows.  He's down and frustrated a lot this time around.  He knows what to expect and can understand medical terminology.  There's no hiding anything from him.  I hate that.  I hate that he knows.  It's heartbreaking.  He wants to go home and he's had it with the pain.
We are hoping that tomorrow he starts to turn a corner and is able to start standing and taking a few steps with the help of a walker.  Little by little, we'll get there.  He's still the toughest human I've ever met.  I can't believe watching the focus my four year old has through pain.  I'm so proud of him.  

On a happy note, my invention is working unbelievably well.  I still get so excited to talk to the nurses about it and watch them get excited with me because they know what problems and pain the foley catheter causes.  It's miserable.  Levi has done so well with my device which gets me more excited to keep moving towards getting it to market.  Right now, we are finishing the US Utility patent and possibly applying for a few more.  We are starting some major conversations with investors that have taken many medical devices to market.  Every penny that is donated is going right to FDA approval and finishing patents so that it's protected world wide.  Every person we've talked to that knows the industry has described it as a disruptive technology to the urology world.  If I can keep going and finish the job, it would help thousands of people.  THAT is what gets me most excited.  Less pain for people that deal with chronic pain.  To take one thing off their plate is what keeps me awake at night.  I'm working so hard to make this happen.
Thank you for partnering with me and believing in me.
