In honor of Kalel's 8th birthday, we are fundraising to raise the remaining amount for his recent treatment. Kalel received his most recent treatment on January 11th and 12th. At the time of treatment, we were able to raise $4,600 towards the $8,000 treatment. Our goal for Kal's birthday fundraiser is to raise the remaining $3,400.
Kal receives umbilical stem cell treatments every two months to help slow down the progression of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). Kal was diagnosed with DMD 2 years ago, just before his 6th birthday. DMD is a fatal genetic muscle-wasting disease for which there is no cure. This condition causes every muscle in the body to waste away. DMD will eventually take Kal's ability to walk and the use of his arms from him. Most boys eventually succumb to heart or lung failure by their late teens to early twenties. We hope that Kal's will help buy time for promising future treatments to be completed.

My name is Kal and I am 7 years old. I live with my mom, dad, and little sister, Livvy, in California. I love helping my dad on our farm, Carter Creek Farm, where we raise organic pastured pork and sometimes chicken. I also help my grandma on the weekends with her garden where we have all kinds of delicious organic veggies.
I was officially diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) on December 30th, 2018 through a genetic test. Although I don't really understand what it all means, I am glad that I finally know why I couldn't keep up with the other kids at school and why I kept falling. There is currently no cure for DMD, but there are some potential ones on the horizon. In the mean time, we are pursuing treatments not covered by insurance in hopes of preserving my muscles.
Despite this diagnosis, we remain optimistic and trusting in God. We believe in the power of prayer, and ask that you continue praying with us and for us, especially for a miracle..
Your generous gift will help us fund medical care and equipment not covered by insurance for Kalel.
