Tommy Fund Offsets Non-Medical Expenses Related to Children’s Orthopedic Treatment

West Palm Beach, Florida (webnewswire) April 3, 2018 – These prestigious foundations have partnered together to form this fund in honor of Tommy Morrisey, a seven-year-old one-armed golf prodigy. The Tommy Fund provides assistance to offset the non-medical expenses associated with receiving treatment for rare and challenging congenital, genetic, developmental and post-traumatic orthopedic conditions. Donate here to help families with children undergoing treatment today!

The Paley Foundation serves a global community of families and their children born with congenital limb deficiencies who are searching for an alternative treatment answer to amputation. This foundation was created to further Dr. Paley’s commitment to save limbs and change lives. One of the ways they carry out this mission is to ease the trauma and burden of treatment on children and families by providing logistical assistance and support.

The unLIMBited Foundation works towards providing resources to save children’s limbs through advanced medical technology. Too often, families are only offered amputation as a solution to complex limb anomalies. The foundation seeks to offer solutions other than amputation through an awareness campaign and strategic partnership with the world-renowned Pediatric Orthopedic Limb Correction Surgeon, Dr. Dror Paley.

Helping Children with Orthopedic Conditions to Flourish

Tommy Morrisey has impressed the world with his amazing abilities and willingness to overcome adversity. There can be alternatives to losing limbs, and Tommy is dedicated to helping other children discover this!

“I only have one arm, but I’m using it to save theirs.” – Tommy Morrisey

Just like Tommy, both foundations are working in partnership to help children facing rare and challenging orthopedic conditions. By taking care of expenses families incur while their children are undergoing treatment, the foundations are bringing hope to families facing these difficult situations.
