Assisting individuals with special needs
Jaime and Jeremy welcomed their first child on October 3, 2006; Suzy was a beautiful baby girl born full-term, however, weighing 4 pounds and 11 ounces at delivery. Then a few months after celebrating Suzy’s first birthday, their world turned upside down when she experienced her first grand mal seizure. After several visits with doctors and therapists, doctors told Jaime and Jeremy that Suzy had epilepsy.
Jaime and Jeremy experience firsthand the challenges of having insurance companies pay for specialized medical devices. When Suzy needed orthotic braces, the insurance company denied their request because the orthotic braces were considered cosmetic and not a medical need. Jaime and Jeremy’s family and friends rallied together and raised enough money to purchase these orthotic braces to help Suzy. After this experience, they felt inspired to help families in similar situations to provide their loved ones with medical and assistive devices they needed.
In 2010, Jaime and Jeremy started the Suzy Foundation, a certified 501 C-3 non-profit specializing in helping special needs individuals with the cost of assistive devices.Today, Suzy is doing great in school, happy, and thriving. Please join us in helping enrich the lives of individuals with special needs.
