Please Help Us to Afford the Copay for the Surgery that Gave Our Autistic Child the Ability to See

My Story:

My husband and I have one child. We call him our miracle child because he is the only one we were able to have. He is 10 years old. He was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and ADHD about 4 years ago. My husbands works full time as a computer technician, and we recently moved from the country to the big city because of more resources and we are closer to my son's doctors and therapists. I have been a stay at home mom for 4 years. I am the one who takes care of my son when he has appointments and if the school ever needed me to help them.

My son requires a lot of treatment, and sometimes, his medical bills can be a little overwhelming. I always try to find the bright side in everything, and I'm truly thankful that my husband has a good job with good insurance. But when we moved to the city, our bills also went up some because everything costs a little more here. But right now, our biggest problem is that on top of these higher day to day expenses, we have a big medical bill we have to pay. My son has problems with his eyes that make it hard for him to see. We had to get him the surgery he needed, and though insurance paid for most of it, we're now left with a big bill to pay. We hadn't expected for my son to have to have this surgery so soon after our move, and we can't take our son to get any more of his care until we pay this bill.

I'm hoping you can please help us to afford this medical bill before my son's next appointment, which is in a week. If you can, you'll be helping a little boy to continue the treatment he needs and giving our family time to stabilize. From then on, we should be able to take care of our son on our own just like we have in the past. If you can help us, it would be really help our family to get past this VERY difficult time. Thank you so much for helping if you can.
