|MISSION 428 - PARKES / SYDNEY / PARKES|
Request (13th & 14th Angel Flights).
Lisa, a young mother, travels to Sydney on a monthly basis for her four month old baby Travis to receive necessary treatment at the Children's Hospital Westmead.
Travis was born with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita, a musculoskeletal disorder characterized by multiple joint contractures. It is imperative children with this condition receive treatment early in life, to prevent the joints from stiffening as they grow. For the first six months of his life, Travis needs regular renewal of splints/plaster casts and physical therapy then hopefully his appointments will become less frequent.
