    Here are the details we received from his mother, Deanna Conn:

    I am contacting you guys to see if you can help Jacob, here is his story:

    He is a lively 2 ½ year old boy that was just recently diagnosed with Hypophosphatasia.

    Hypophosphatasiais a rare inherited metabolic disorder of decreased tissue nonspecific alkaline phosphatase and defective bone mineralization. The disease comes in one of five forms, perinatal, infantile, childhood, adult, and odonto hypophosphatasia. Depending on the severity of the skeletal disease, there may be deformity of the limbs and chest. Pneumonia can result if chest distortion is severe. Recurrent fractures can occur.Teeth may be lost prematurely, have wide pulp (inside) chambers, and thereby be predisposed to cavities. As yet, there is no cure for hypophosphatasia and no proven medical therapy. Some medications are being evaluated. Treatment is generally directed towards preventing or correcting the symptoms or complications.

    I have put in an application for the Shriner’s Hospital in St. Louis, MO for Jacob and we are awaiting approval. Dr. Michael Whyte, M.D. is the medical director of the Center for Metabolic Bone Disease and Molecular Research at Shriner’s Hospital-St. Louis was recently awarded for his furthering knowledge about metabolic bone diseases. The Center was established to bring together clinical and experimental scientists involved in the study of bone and mineral metabolism. The Center for Metabolic Bone Disease and Molecular Research founded in 1983investigates, treats, and diagnoses more than 100 rare bone diseases such as genetic forms of rickets, including hypophosphatasia and X-linked hypophosphatemia.

    The reason why I am contacting you is to ask if there is any help that you can provide for us financially; we would be forever grateful. We have a goal of $14,000 to cover all medical expenses, current and expected. We need funding for: all the expensive rare tests that were done before Jacob was diagnosed, travel expenses to/from the Shriner’s Hospital in St. Louis, financial support for any testing that the hospital doesn’t cover, dentures/partials for Jacob due to his missing teeth, funding for 6-8 visits per year will be needed with a specialized pediatric dentist and orthopedic doctor, hopefully finding a cure, and more unforeseen clinical expenses.

    We don’t know what the future holds for Jacob; or how painful this disease will be for him (only time will tell), but we are trying our best as parents to make his life as “normal” as possible.

    Will you guys please help us?
