User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI don't have the words to express my appreciation. My son has been truly blessed from all those that have donated. He was so excited when I told him that his goal was reached. He said mommy everyone from around the world cares about me. This brought tears to my eyes. It is amazing that the donors would give up something that they needed or wanted to help my son. I appreciate each and every individual who helped make this dream become a reality. He will now be able to learn to read and play sports among other things that little boys his age can do. Thank you for contributing to us in our time of need. I pray that God will bless each and everyone of you!

Single Mom Needs Urgent Help To Save Young Son's Vision

My Story:

I am a single mom of a five-year-old son. I work for a non-profit organization working with families of critically ill children. My son is a very outgoing and sensitive little boy, but needs essential therapy, which I cannot afford on my own. He has an eye muscle disorder affecting his vision, and without therapy his ability to read, write and play, would be significantly affected. As it turns out, insurance won't cover this expense, and my income is not sufficient in order to be able to help him.

Modest Needs is my only hope, in affording this much needed therapy for my son. He currently cannot focus, sees words moving on a page, and has trouble balancing. I have tried everything to try and come up with the money, but have not had success.

This funding would change my son's life forever. The treatment will give him a chance for the future and allow him to learn, play, and read without any problems. He would be able to catch the ball when thrown to him and play sports! Thank you so much for considering our request!

As of 2012-08-20, this application has been fully funded!
