Austin has been struggling with health issues since he was born. From clubfeet to plagiocephaly to mitochondrial disease to failure to thrive and constipation and so many other challenges, his journey has been anything but easy! Through this, we've dealt with Mike losing his job and being out of work for a time and more out of pocket expenses than we could possibly expect. We are facing more travel again due to Austin needing a cecostomy tube to help manage his constipation along with other changes in our lives that is making the financial aspect of this more than we can handle. Between the normal day-to-day expenses, we are still making payments on substantial medical bills from several years ago which is making the travel a strain on our finances. We no longer receive SSI for him because of Michael working full-time now, but with multiple trips a month, the need far greater exceeds the actual money coming in. As hard as it is for us to ask for help, we have no choice at this point...but we wouldn't feel right not doing something for you in return! My Aunt had made this gorgeous hand-made quilt for us to do a fundraiser (clearer photos to come!!), so everyone who donates $10.00 will receive one chance to win this beautiful keepsake! Every $10 you donate will increase your chances. We are so grateful for the love and support everyone has given us through the years and pray that you will keep Austin in your thoughts as he faces his next surgery, one of a dozen times being put under in his short life.
All funds raised will be used for Austin's ongoing medical needs only!!
