Hello everyone. I don’t usually post stuff like this but I figured I would share it with the awesome KI community. I’ve created a GoFundMe account with my wife in hopes of raising some money. Here’s the story:
My 5 year old son has Autism and has been in and out of speech, occupational, and ABA therapies. Our 2 year old son also needs help with speech and shows some signs of Autism although not as severe. They are making progress but we’ve run into a bit of an issue. The facility that they were most recently at does not accept Medicaid so we’ve been using our own insurance and paying out of pocket. This has cost an arm and a leg. We’ve racked up a little over $3,000 in therapy bills and have been forced to switch to another facility that accepts Medicaid.
On top of this, there is discussion (not set in stone yet) that the state of Texas will no longer pay for speech or occupational therapies via Medicaid starting October 1st. This will severely limit our options for getting help for our sons. Because of all of this, we’ve started a GoFundMe account to not only pay for the existing bills but to also raise money to help move our family out of the state. It’ll be to a state which has more options available to us.
Thanks for reading, even if you choose not to donate. Feel free to share the page. I hate asking people for money but we’re trying to do what’s best for our family.
