Jo Ann Nekrasz is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Denise Jacobs.
Hello everyone, My name is Jo Ann Nekrasz and I am Denise Jacobs' best friend. I am setting up this Gofund me acct. for her and her son Lincoln. As most of you are aware, her precious son has become a victim of bullying, which has medically and emotionally affected him. Lincoln has been in and out of hospitals for the past month and half. He has lost a severe amount of weight, unable to eat nor keep hydrated. He has been suffering with a sensory issue brought on by anxiety and stress causing him to gag on his food, which he ends up vomiting. He has been through extensive medical testing from emergency endoscopy, upper GI, barium swallow study, nasal scope, brain MRI, OT/ PT, feeding team therapy, nutritionist eval, psychologist eval., with future psychology appts., tons of bloodwork, ENT. Eval., IV fluids, a couple of emergency room visits, etc. He has been admitted to Geisinger Danville Janet Weiss hospital twice already, plus a day at CHOP in Philadelphia where he had to meet with a neuroligist. Needless to say this has become a very emotional road for both mom and son. Their entire lives have been disrupted emotionally, mentally, physically, socially and financially. Denise has had to take several weeks already off from work. Lincoln has missed several days of school. It has been a very difficult road for them both. The sad thing is, all of this has to do with bullying from one child. Denise, being a single mom has her plate full taking care of her son, trying to juggle everything and is now trying to figure out how to financially survive. She now will be facing the burden of the medical expenses, large Insurance deductibles, copays, travel expenses and future Dr. Appts. her son has in the upcoming months. I, as her friend am asking for your financial help to help alleviate added stress. Any amount is greatly appreciated. My prayers are with both of them and hope they are on the road to recovery and healing. #Bulliesarecowards #timetostop #Lincolnisstrong
