Who We Are and What We Do
Established in 2021, the Springer Family Foundation was created to serve and support the Trisomy Community by providing community, connecting you with your local resources, providing education and assisting with the cost of traveling for medical care when needed. We aim to empower all families to say "I CAN do this!" We understand the feelings of fear and isolation that can come with a diagnosis like Trisomy 18. We want to walk with you. We care because we've been there.
Our daughter, Sage Elyse, faced medical bias. This caused us to live 200 miles from home for 2.5 months while she got the life saving surgeries she needed. We were surrounded by support from our family and friends. Their overwhelming generosity funded our gas, meals and more. We feel inspired to pass along the same blessings that were showered on us so that you can focus on what matters most: fighting for your child.
