Louis Vuitton Purse benefiting Titanium Rib Foundation

The Titanium Rib Foundation has supported 27 families in 2014. As awareness continues to grow so do requests for assistance through our Bridge the Gap grants. Many times, families just need gas money to get from their home to whichever state / hospital provides this life saving surgery. Typically the child is medically fragile leaving only one parent to work for the family resources. We all know too well even the middle class suffers when there is catastrophic medical bills. Our rib kids have surgery 2-3 times a year to either expand or replace their Titanium Rib. We seek to replenish our Bridge the Gap fund for 2015 as we grant the last of our grants for 2014 in the next two weeks.

About the Bridge the Gap Grants:
A titanium rib family most likely has to travel, sometimes thousands of miles to a VEPTR site for life saving surgery for their child. Our grants range from $200-$500, simply a band aid to assist family to offset the cost of travel, hotel and food. These kids sometimes have surgery up to 3 times a year. Then there are unexpected complications. If a family has budgeted and able to make the surgery, what about infection - it delays the time away from home when expenses begin to add up.

Titanium Rib Foundation
Our mission is to provide multifaceted support to pediatric patients and their families as they deal with spinal deformity, chest deformity and associated medical care. Although these patients and families are often, but not always, involved with the STTAR Center at Childrens’ Hospital of San Antonio, we welcome inquiries from individuals in any geographic area. We seek to:

Support families with financial hardship by defraying costs related to travel and lodging in the course of receiving care
Offer encouragement and morale-building to patients and parents, and connect these families with supportive peers who are also dealing with long-term, repetitive surgical care of complex medical conditions
Underwrite ongoing research efforts aimed at improving the current concepts of best practices in pediatric spinal surgical care.
Raise public awareness of the health care needs of pediatric spinal deformity patients with challenging co-existing medical issues
