This fundraiser is dedicated to out little 11yr old boy, Brody. Brody is in need of several procedures and more testing this year. Brody has Autism, OCD, severe anxiety amongst other things. He is a happy go lucky boy with no cares in the world! Testing for seizures, genetic testing, dental procedures, occupatuonal therpy, pysical therapy, speech therapy are amongst the docket of medical things for this year (again).
A bit about Brody: Brody was delayed nearly at birth. He had jaundice reay bad and until age 2 had reflux. By age 3 he had been diagnosed with Autism and had begun the regimine of OT, PT, and ST in our home. He has been 'put under' for tubes in his ears and 2 MRI's and this year for a bunch of dental work. He has undergone a barage of gentic testing. As a result of his severe anxiety he 'self hyperventilates' which causes a loss of balance..this could also be a seizure, which also may be leading to his teeth grinding (which is one of the procedures he needs done this year). He goes to a school which has done wonderful things for him, but he still mentally functions like a 3-4yr old and is pretty much non-verbally, which is why he still requires extra PT, OT, ST. Insurance doesnt cover much if any of the stuff we need to get done for him this year. I'm pitching the idea of others helping out with great reserve. I am not one for asking for help, handouts, loans etc..but i have swalled my pride and my son is more important than anything so i guess if i can get a little relief from some great people out there then we would be extremely grateful. Any extra money will be donted to Brody's school which relys mainly on donations to function as it is. I just feel i dont have any other option at this point and have to ask for help. Brody is on meds that run $400+ every two months. So these bils have been adding up for years and will continue for years to come. It has been overwhelming and a bit out of hand. So, short of begging we would appreciate ANY donation so Brody can get his tests and procedures done without hearing his parents argue about how we are going to pay for it. Again, any extra will be donated to his school! Thank you and God Bless.
