Helmet & Hospital Stay For Alex
Hello everyone!! Many of you know that Alex was born 2 1/2 months early, while he is a thriving and healthy growing 8 month old baby bear he has developed Brachycephaly (aka flat head syndrome). We have tried everything possible to help self correct this at home..... bought the pillows, kept a strict repositioning schedule and keep him up and active as much as possible it wasn’t enough and he requires a helmet to help correct it. We only have a short time frame to work with which luckily goes off of his “adjusted age” of 5 1/2 months. Unfortunately our insurance Tricare does not cover this since it is considered “cosmetic”. The cost of the helmet is $1800, $600 of that is due before they will even begin to make the helmet he needs. As it also turns out his hospital bill was a whopping $222,430.00!!!!! 8 months later and we are just now getting the bill for over $700 for copay!! Anything you are able to donate will help get us closer to the goal!!! Thank you!!!+ Read More
We were able to use what we have raised so far to get his helmet made! He has adjusted well to using it and doesn’t even notice it is on. We still owe them $1200 for the helmet and the $700 deductible. Thank you to everyone that has helped so far!
