Taryn Mathey had surgery to repair a bone in her foot on March 5, 2012 at Shriners Hospitals for Children-Chicago. Her reconstructive bone surgery repaired a bone in her foot that had grown in the wrong direction causing her toes to overlap and created a great deal of pain and discomfort to her. Taryn is a very athletic and active 7th grader who loves basketball and soccer. The surgery was success and Taryn is recovering well and started her rehab process. She is expected to return to all of her sports with no problems. She is very anxious to return to the soccer field and basketball and play her favorite sports pain free and injury free for the first time in her life. Taryn and her family were very enthused with the professional and friendly care she received from the staff and surgeons from Shriners. After taking the x-rays they were able to get her schedule for surgery to repair her foot very quickly allowing Taryn to be a normal healthy athlete for the next season. Her parents, Keith and Kate Mathey are able to continue caring for their four children without the added stress of medical bills piling up.
