Love for Lucas

Lucas is the sweetest, most beautiful 2 year old boy inside and out.  He was a perfect 7 lbs 9 ounces at birth.  It was not until he was around 6 months we realized he was falling behind on his milestones- he could not eat well, did not pick up toys, and could not sit on his own.  We took him to Marshfield to see a Neurologist, where we were told he had a brain injury and would need an MRI to get a diagnosis.  2 weeks later, we found ourselves back at the clinic.  He was diagnosed with Spastic Quadripilegia Cerebral Palsy, Microcephaly, Schizencephaly, Polymicrogyria, Epilepsy, and Accomodative Esotropia (Eyes). 
   Since then, we have been seeing many specialists down in Marshfield (a 2 hour drive).  His Nuerologist, Physical Medicine, Genetics, Orthopedic Surgeons, etc.  He recently started having Infantile Spasms (seizures), and started a medication to help prevent the seizures.  he also recently got fitted for new AFO's.  He sees his Physical and Speech Therapists weekly. 
   With all of this, comes the need for expensive equipment.  We really want to get him the Upsee by Firefly, so he can take his very first steps!  He also needs a GoTo seat by Firefly, so we can easily take him places with us- as just going grocery shopping with him in the cart is a huge struggle.  All of the specialists and tests he has gone through add up, and are not all covered by insurance.  
   Lucas's PT brought a special therapy to our attention, and we would absolutely LOVE to take him to do it.  We would go on a week long trip to Canada to work with this therapist, Who would make a huge impact on Lucas's abilities, while training us how to do this therapy work on him ourselves.  This is not something we can afford to do on our own.  We truly appreciate any and all help we can get to better this amazing little man's life.
