The Fourth Annual benefit for the Foundation was held in the backyard of Chillin' on Friday, September 14, 2018.   The Foundation wishes to thank Jeff and Shari Heaton who organized the benefit, donated the venue along with the bar tab and so much more.   They are amazing people and we are indebted to them.   One of the fund raisers that we did this year was a "cash raffle" with the money going 50/50 to the Foundation and the lucky winner.   The winner, Terry Huey generously donated his share back to the Foundation.   Thank you Terry!  Besides the guitars we also had some other items donated for the silent auction - Thank you Gary Roller for the beautiful framed artwork entitled "Feather Duster", Dawn Freeland for the Habotai silk scarf, Cabin Fever Mercantile for the "Rocky Mountain Basket" and Blue Bird Boutique for the "goodie bag".

Thanks to J.C. Propane who donated propane for the awesome heaters that Jeff Heaton recently installed, everyone stayed warm for an amazing concert that started off with a a brief set by Jeff Heaton previewing his new C.D.   Then Ryan Murphey, Fiona's Dad, played a series of songs that he had written about Fiona from her birth to her High School Graduation.   Then Michael Martin Murphey played songs from his ever expanding repetoire including songs from his new album, AUSTINOLOGY.   The night was capped off with a silent auction of two "Wildfire" guitars, pictured above Ann Fox and Robert Wilson, Jr. as the lucky winners.  After the auction several Jeff Heaton fans stayed into the wee hours listening to Jeff.

Fiona Rose Murphey, Nonprofit Organization in Georgetown, TX

The Fiona Rose Murphey Foundation Charitable Trust helps children with bone diseases and other debilitating conditions and is a non profit 501 (c) (3) organization based in Georgetown, Texas.

 
Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) (Brittle Bone Disease)

Characterized by breaking of bones easily and frequently, often for little or no apparent reason, Osteogenesis Imperfecta is caused by imperfectly formed bone collagen, which is the major protein of the bones' connective tissue.

 

The condition is a genetic disorder that affects about one in every 20,000 children born in the U.S. each year, and usually affects the long bones in arms and legs.

With four different degrees of severity of OI existing in patients, some of the milder cases are often misdiagnosed as child abuse cases and some more severe cases do not allow the infant to survive. The majority of patients are affected with moderate OI, which presents itself with evidence of broken bones in utero, at birth, and shortly thereafter.

About Us

With more than 10 years of experience, Fiona Rose Murphey Foundation Charitable Trust functions in favor of children with Osteogenesis Imperfecta and similar conditions.

Thanks to the success of our fundraising we have been able to help Ryker Curtis, a young red headed boy who was born with over 18 fractures, with expenses relating to his surgery. Ryker lives in Nashville, TN and has had particular problems with his humeri (arm bones) fractuing them about every two weeks since September 2013.   He will get both his right humerus and right tibia rodded in Omaha, NE and we are so happy to be able to help him with the expenses related to this surgery.

Another child with O.I. that we have also helped with pamidronate infusion "out of pocket" expense is Jacob Becerra from The Woodlands, TX.    

Yet another child that we have helped is Noah Ortiz, a nine month baby shown in the picture wearing a helmet that the Foundation has purchased for him.   Noah lives in Beeville, Tx and has O.I. Type III the same type as Fiona.   Children with O.I. spend so much time in the first couple of years on their backs that their heads tend to flatten and this helmet will help protect and shape his head.

We have partnered with the Center for Courageous Kids in Scottsville, KY, a medical camp for children with chronic or life threatening illnesses. In November, 2015 they held an O.I. weekend camp for O.I. children and their families.   We created a "Fiona Fuel Fund" which helped families travel to the camp.   The actual camp is free for the children and their families to attend. We hope to continue this partnership in the future. 

In addition to helping children with O.I. we have also provided assitance to a teenager who underwent a heart transplant and several autistic children so they can have access to and be able to afford learning devices.

See our services page for inquiries on acquiring assistence for your family.
