DALLAS, TX August 16, 2018 Everyone takes normal everyday life for granted. Everyone focuses on their issue concerns and pretty much the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The general populace feels all of this is but normal but they do not realize there are some who are not as fortunate as them. Sadly there are some who are not born into normalcy, some are born into pain and suffering.
While still in the womb, some babies have problems with how their organs and body parts form, how they work, or how their bodies turn food into energy. These health problems are called birth defects.
There are more than 4,000 different kinds of birth defects, ranging from minor ones that need no treatment to serious ones that cause disabilities or require medical or surgical treatment. Every cell in the body has chromosomes containing genes that determine a person’s unique characteristics. During conception, a child inherits one of each pair of chromosomes (and one of each pair of the genes they contain) from each parent. An error during this process can cause a baby to be born with too few or too many chromosomes, or with a damaged chromosome.
One well-known birth defect caused by a chromosome problem is Down syndrome. A baby develops Down syndrome after getting one extra chromosome. Other genetic defects happen when both parents pass along a faulty gene for the same disease.
Sadly our subject is going through a more extreme case. Anjelica Vossler was born with Turner Syndrome. Turner Syndrome only effects women. Because girls with Turner Syndrome are born missing that chromosome there bodies do not produce the hormones needed to grow and develop like a normal girls body would. I was extremely lucky and was diagnosed at birth and took growth hormone shots to grow and develop normally like any other child.
When I was sixteen my endocrinologist prescribed me birth control pills so my body would have the estrogen and progestin it needed to go through puberty and I have been on and off those pills ever since. She had open heart surgery when she was 22 to replace her aortic valve. She has had two of those ever since. She now has an artificial heart valve and have to be on Coumadin (a blood thinner) for the rest of her life.
Being on this drug involves checking her blood PTINR levels to see if blood is too thin or too thick. Either one actually can give her a stroke. All she wants is just to live a normal life. She has been accepted and enrolled into the Nuclear Medicine Tech program in Dallas. But she still needs your help. If only top treatment drug manufacturer Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE: BMY) could come in and help but they won’t.
