One of my Schimke heroes is Emily Koesters from Nebraska, along with her parents Erin and Joe Koesters. Be The Change in MN recognizes and supports the tremendous need for research and testing of this rare disease.
Please, in honor of all the Little Giants affected by SIOD, consider their request below and help Emily Koesters.
Emily Miranda Koester’s Nebraska Little Giants Day 1st Anniversay, proclaimed by Governor Dave Heineman last year is coming up on FEBRUARY 10th!
The fight continues...life expectancy for Emily's disease (SIOD- Schimke Immuno-osseous Dysplasia) is age 8-15! Emily is 7 and 1/2 now.
The Schimke researchers are on the brink of a drug that may help PROLONG lives of SIOD. LET EMILY LIVE TO TEST IT!

We are parents pleading on bended knee!
Don't delay; Emily's life depends on it.
Mommy Erin and Daddy Joe
