1 Family Fighting both PANDAS & NKH

URGENT NEED: Michael and Ryan McLaughlin (formerly Ryan Tully) and their children battle incomprehensible illness every day. Their children suffer daily from NKH and PANDAS – both which are debilitating diseases requiring very specific treatments and equipment. Their daily needs for simple basic care and survival are beyond most people’s comprehension. When an urgent need arises like it has again, part of their miracles comes in the form of YOUR personal support. 

I am thankful they allowed me to help others bless them by sharing their story on this forum. Below is a link to Ryan’s blog wherein she shares their story, their struggle and their sacrifice—as well as the heartbreak of already having to bury one child. Please read, share, pray and – most importantly – take action by donating to support their medical needs.

Every gift makes a great impact! Lifting the financial burden so they can focus entirely on getting their children the best care they need is my goal. Together, we can help them meet these great needs that are vital for the daily care and survival of their children.

In addition to ongoing hospital and doctor appointments that will last their children’s lifetime, they have some very specific URGENT NEEDS. This first goal will be to raise $15,000 for IVIG therapy for their son who suffers from PANDAS. They need to get to Washington D.C. as soon as possible for the best treatment that will have a greater impact long-term than the local options available. The longer they have to wait, the more he suffers.

The 15k should cover this treatment, air and ground travel, and food. 

After that 15k, they need a special car seat, “tomato chair”, handicap accessible patio, special needs adaptable swing set, and ongoing hospital and treatment bills. 

Note: I am believing for 10 people to give $500 gifts and 10 more to give $1,000 gifts -- in addition to hundreds of other gifts. If you plan to give $500+, please text or call me at 405/408-6954 to ensure you get a tax deduction BEFORE you donate here. 

Please share to help me find these people who will give $10 to $1,000 or more!
