Bridges Family Gives Back While Planning for the Future
Ainsley Bridges was born with an extremely rare, genetic disorder called Phenylketonuria (PKU). Left untreated, PKU causes brain damage. Because of the ongoing care Ainsley receives from a multidisciplinary team at Children’s Mercy, she’s able to live a full and healthy life.
Recently, Ainsley’s parents, Justin and Mindy, decided to add Children’s Mercy as a beneficiary in their estate. “Children’s Mercy doesn’t just provide great care. They want to find better ways to treat all kids. It gives us hope that our support will benefit not only my child and my family, but the whole community,” said Mindy.
