Team Xavier

Dearest Friends and Family,

Many of you know our story, for those who don't, my name is Jody and I am the mother of Xavier, 19 and Gina, 22.

When Xavier was less than 2, he was diagnosed with autism. At that point, I didn't know what the rest of our lives would look like. I didn't know what autism was, nor did I know the long road that was ahead of us. I remember looking into his little face and promising him that I would do everything possible to help him.

Xavier has had many challenges in his 19 years on this planet. While many "experts" pointed me in every direction imaginable, I found few answers. While my son began to become more and more challenged, I was always told it was the autism. Deep within I did not feel that that was a sufficient answer.I knew my son was in pain and I knew there had to be answers and there was!

In 2012 we were introduced to autism expert, Lynette Louise and neurofeedback. This was a life changer for us. Through the daily ongoing sessions, I was able to start seeing improvements in Xavier and I became excited for the first time in years. His temporal lobe over-fires and he has mini-seizures, with this therapy, he was able to calm his brain. It set us up for the next step which would be changing Xavier's diet. We received a grant from Generation Rescue that gave us supplements, education, access to a DAN (Defeat Autism Now) Dr.,extensive lab work, and ongoing support. I cannot thank them enough for what they did to help us.

As a result of the findings, we realized that Xavier is pretty sick. He has multiple internal issues that prevent him from functioning typically. He is extremely heavy metal toxic, riddled with chemicals and an inability to detox them because his liver is not functioning optimally.He is also extremely food sensitive and everything he has been eating has been causing him discomfort and needed to be changed.So this was good news. I was beginning to see how the behaviors were a result of a toxic inner state and that contrary to the Doctors we had been to, there WAS something we could do for X.

November 7, Xavier has an appointment to see one of the nations finest autism Doctors in Irvine California. It is not cheap, it will cost me thousands of dollars to bring him there. Our insurance does not cover the cost of the visit and it is extremely expensive. So expensive that if I don't fundraise to afford to bring him, he won't be able to go. So in order for us to elevate Xavier to the next level of his healing, I am shamelessly calling on my friends and family for help.

This is where you come in!

You can help assist Xavier's healing through a financial contribution at this time! I need to raise $5,000 by November 7th! I know we can do it! Great things can be achieved by an individual but epic things are accomplished when we come together!

Let's all come together to help Xavier have the best life possible filled with all the love and wellness imaginable! I promised him!

Thank you so much and know that I appreciate you immensely for all your help and support! Please share!

It takes a village!
