ABOUT KEILY GAMEZ
Keily was diagnosed with a terminal illness in May 2007, called Late Infantile Metachromatic Leukodystrophy. Before then, Keily seemed to be your typical toddler. She was born a healthy baby and was hitting all of her milestones up until she was about 18 months. For a while her parents noticed something "off" about her. She was clumsy and wobbly and she started complaining about her legs and feet hurting. She was referred to Shriners and then to a neurologist who ran several different types of tests and MRI's. While waiting for her results, she had her first seizure, a massive one that lasted over 45 minutes. She was hospitalized and had lost nearly all ability to swallow. She declined at an alarming rate. She became completely bedridden and had lost all her motor skills. She was later diagnosed with an inherited defective gene from both parents causing a recessive genetic disorder called Late Infantile Metachromatic Leukodystrophy. MLD destroys the white matter in the brain. There is currently no cure and most children with MLD die by age 5.
Today, Keily has outlived all of the doctors life expectancy predictions and she is about to be 15! She has so much personality and she is so loved.
Keily's family is in desperate need of a new home. Keily is in a wheel chair and requires extra room to move around freely. Our goal is $300,000 to build them a well deserved, brand new home! We hope to reach this goal through a portion of our companies profits and the support of benefactors throughout our community. Freewill donations will be accepted throughout our entire campaign and we plan to end our fundraising efforts with a charity run benefiting the Gamez family. Total Solutions believes in restoring love and generosity in our community one act of kindness and family at a time. Thank you for your support. Lets build a better Shreveport together. "
