User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeWe are truly overwhelmed by the amount of generous donations we have received. Having just went through bankruptcy court this morning, we were feeling pretty down about not being able to cover the costs of therapy and providing what would work best for our son. This act of kindness has helped our family be able to see the light during a dark path and help us get back on the right path again. Thank you all for your unselfish contributions towards a family that is just trying to keep their head above water during a difficult time on our journey. We are beyond thankful and humbled to see that there is good in the world. God Bless You All!

We Can't Afford ABA Treatment for Our Son & Need Urgent Help Please!

My Story:

I am a married mother of two five year old twins. My son is autistic and requires a lot of intense therapy. He has ABA five days a week and speech and OT three days a week. In addition to that, my daughter is involved in speech therapy as well. My husband is the bread winner as I am home with the kids driving them to therapies or helping with school/virtual school during the day.

We earn enough to pay for our basic expenses every month, but we live paycheck to paycheck and depend a lot on our savings which is depleting. I recently filed bankruptcy to get rid of expenses incurred through previous therapies for our son, but we still have to continue on with his therapies so that he's able to grow and develop properly. My son still requires pull-ups in addition to therapies, so we have a lot of extra expenses that we incur just regarding him. I'm worried that we've reached the point where we aren't able to afford his therapies anymore, and I'm worried about the long-term effects that could have on his development.

With that being said, we are humbly looking for assistance with the copays for our son's ABA therapy. In the past, we've been able to find assistance through local programs to aid with the cost of these bills, but we've run out of funding for the rest of last year, and now, the costs of his therapies fall completely on us. We're struggling to keep a roof over our heads, and we're facing a situation where we have to choose between keeping our home and keeping our son in therapy. However, with this generous assistance, we won't have to make that difficult decision and can focus on getting our son the care he needs. My husband and I would be deeply grateful for that and would like to say 'thank you' to everyone who's able to assist us in advance.
