Hello, my name is Camille and I have Osteogenesis Imperfecta otherwise known as Brittle Bone Disease. This means I cannot stand and I am confined to a wheelchair and cannot do things such as going to the bathroom, showering, bathing, and preparing my own meals. However, I am very smart and sharp as a tack. In January of 2022, my father left my mother and I after 34 years of marriage to be with someone else. Since then, my mom and I have been paying what bills we can on what limited income we get. Our income has become even less due to this divorce. Brittle Bone Disease means my medical needs will grow as I get older. I will need treatments, surgeries, and intense physical therapy. My father is also forcing the sale of our home due to the divorce, which is completely wheelchair accessible. This is the only home I have known my entire life and the only place I feel safe and comfortable. Losing my home would have detrimental effects to my mental and physical health as I would lose what little independence I do have. If this were to happen, I don’t know where we would go.
