Kyler

Three-year-old Kyler was born with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) or “brittle bone disease,” but he hasn’t let the disease keep him from being a playful toddler.

Kyler has experienced multiple broken bones and has learned to adjust to spending significant amounts of time in casts. He just recently started walking and uses crutches to support him.

Kyler’s mom, Kristi, is no stranger to Shriners Hospitals for Children — Greenville. She was a patient treated for the same condition as her son. Doctors were able to straighten her bowed legs with rods so she could stand and walk, and as a result she became a high school cheerleader.

Today Kristi is thankful to be able to keep up with her busy lifestyle. She remembers coming to Shriners Hospitals for Children — Greenville for her treatments and describes her experience as a vacation. When she brings Kyler for his appointments, she notices how comfortable he is at the same hospital.

Kyler enjoys playing with other patients as well as the large selection of toys available to him. Kristi says that Shriners Hospital for Children — Greenville is “like no other hospital.”
