The Alle Shea Project

07/10/2020 - 12/31/2020

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page!

I plan to participate in the OI Foundation's Unbreakable Spirit® Walk-n-Wheel on July 10, 2020, and I need your support!

Alle Shea Collazo (April 14, 2009 – May 21, 2009)

Alle Shea was born with type II Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI).  OI is a genetic disorder characterized by bones that break easily, often from little or no apparent cause. Rolling over in bed or sneezing can cause a fracture. At birth, Alle Shea had broken legs, ribs, wrist, arm, and a fractured skull.  To honor Alle Shea’s brave fight we created the Alle Shea Project; with help from the OI Foundation, we host various fundraisers to raise funds for grants and research to help children/adults with OI. We also send care packages all over the world to children with OI. So far, we have sent out 143 care packages to 41 states and 10 countries.  We work hard to raise awareness of OI in Alle Shea’s name and to keep her fight alive.  Please help us honor our brave Alle Shea’s battle by supporting our cause.

50,000 people in the United States are affected by osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), a rare genetic disease that makes bones fragile and easily broken. A person living with OI may experience hundreds of painful fractures over a lifetime. Infants with OI are often born with multiple broken bones. In severe cases of OI, a cough can break an adult’s rib. Each person with OI is unique, with different fracture rates, a varied range of related health issues, and his or her own path through life. Yet there is one thing every person living with OI has in common… an Unbreakable Spirit®!

Please help us to provide answers to families, fund research, and maintain a network of support groups for families dealing with the daily realities of OI by making a gift and even joining us for this fun event.
