My son Vinicio, who turned 5 years old yesterday,  was diagnosed last year with Mitochondrial disease. It is a rare genetic disorder that is considered terminal due to the life threatening medical conditions that comes with it and due to the nature of the disease. 

Caring for a child who is considered medically fragile is rewarding yet challenging. I have set up this fundraiser due to numerous people asking how they can help. There are a few big ticket items that we need for him that the insurance won't cover. 

1) ipad/nabi
2) chiropractic care
3) upgrades to his bouncy
4) tall therapy table/changing table
5) Van modifications 
6) housing modifications 

The funds raised will go directly to the items above in that order. Thank you all so much for your prayers and support. We appreciate any and all contributions.
