David Talkington of Newark, Ohio was diagnosed with Hypophosphatasia (HPP) as an infant. This rare metabolic bone disease causes patients to break bones easily, fatigue, pain and can impact their quality of life. David could work a regular job until 2008 until he broke two femurs within 6 months of each other due to HPP. The Doctors informed him he should be on disability due to slow healing fractures caused by HPP.

David was approved for Social Security-Disability, is now in a power wheelchair outside the home and on tough days at home, but has experienced wonderful progress with treatment and physical therapy! He can now walk around inside the house with assistive devices as well as using his power chair depending upon what he needs that day. He has made more progress than we ever dreamed! While this is encouraging for longer distances he will still need the wheelchair.

Giving Tuesday is Nov 29 and we are so excited! It’s a fun day where people all around the world give to causes they care about! Help Hope Live will be covering the credit card fees for gifts to Daves campaign on their website and we are so thankful for that! We are still gathering some estimates for handicap van repairs and are not sure what medical expenses may look like since we have an insurance change for Dave next year so please share, pray, and consider a donation to his campaign through Help Hope Live. We so appreciate the support! ❤️

This past winter we had trouble with the deck sealer product not standing up like it should have. This was very disappointing but as many of you may have experienced sometimes this happens.

So this year we had it done again with a different product and the non-skid strips on the deck and stairs for safety. Whether walking or rolling this is a medical need for David that is not covered by health insurance.

Thanks to all of your gifts and Help Hope Live we were able to get this taken care or before it got too cold! Such a blessing we are truly thankful for!

Next project some repair work on the handicapped van. We hope to get estimates next month. Please consider a donation to Daves Help Hope Live to help us out with this medical need that is not covered by health insurance. Blessings to each and everyone one of you!
