Tucker's Genetic Testing

Hello~I am Tucker's Aunt A (Amy) and we are trying to help him reach his full potential that God has planned for him. Tucker has been classified as "Globally Delayed" for most of his short 2 1/2 years of life. Much testing has been done, but doctors are unable to give a more definitive diagnosis. Tucker's only option for finding a diagnosis is to proceed with genetic testing and pray that those tests will hold the answer, as his medical team has assured his family it will.

Genetic testing will not only provide a diagnosis, but it will be the key to unlocking greater access to things like: financial support, more effective coverage of physical, speech, and occupational therapies(among other medical expenses), and help keep cost low for his medical supplies like foot braces and larger diapers.  

His parents have exhausted their efforts to get insurance coverage for this testing, however, recently learned that this is not even a covered service through their insurance company and a letter of appeal gave no results.  We are trying, as a village, to fund this now.  We are ever so greatful for anything you are able to provide and thank you so much for taking the time to read the story of "our" awesome little boy!!
