Helmet for Maddox!

For a family thats been through so much already we need a little help with this AMAZING little boy. In 2012, if you didnt already know we lost our first born son, he was 1 week from turning 4 years old and had several unexplained special needs. We had been through alot and grew closer as a family thinking that god has a plan for everyone and everything happens for a reason. As a Husband and Wife we Had a desire to try for another child about a year later. (when our son passed we had a 1 year old lil girl at the time), But we wanted at least one more. When i got pregnant we found out at 8 weeks along that we were having TWINS .. What a blessing! Again, a very Difficult life change but god obviously thought we could handle it. :) We had a Little Girl and a Little Boy October of 2013. They were healthy and got to come home. (Another Blessing) After our son Maddox started to grow he had trouble with Acid Reflux and Torticollis (a tight muscle in his kneck that made it hard for him to look around) which caused his pretty little head to get flat and mishaped (Called "Plagiocephaly"). We have been through 6 months of Physical Therapy to shape it back without luck. We need to order him a Helmet Before the doctors say its to late and it cant be molded back into its shape. Our insurance will pay Nothing as they consider it a Cosmetic change and not a NEED, but as a parent we think its a need for a child. The Hospital needs $2000 Upfront just for the initial exam to order the helmet and then the other $1500 before we bring it home for him to use. All of this will also cost us to miss hours at work and also money for traveling expenses

to the appointments. Anything Helps! and We really Appreciate the time you took to read our story and hear us out. Thanks so much for helping us and this HANDSOME little boy.
