Cassidy was born with a rare genetic condition called Conradi-Hunermann Syndrome. It affects her spine so she has scoliosis and kyphosis for which she has two VEPTR's (titanium ribs) to help keep her spine straighter. She has limb length issues. Her right side is shorter and she wears foot on foot prosthesis. Her vision has now been corrected in her right eye. She had a very severe cataract in that eye that has now been replaced with a lens. We call it the bionic eye! She also has some patchy alopecia (otherwise known as bald spots). Cassidy also has some hearing loss in her left ear. This has been corrected with a hearing aid that she wears most days (it even has bluetooth in it!). She has had 30 surgeries to date with more to come, usually one every six months.
