Christopher's jaw surgery

This is my grandson Christopher.  He was born with a small lower mandebul bone( lower jaw bone) He requires surgery to correct it, however his insurance refuses to pay for part of the surgery. He requires 2 surgeries to fix the problem. Without this surgery his head and upper jaw will continue to grow while his lower jaw stay the size of a small child. I've raised him since birth and thru multiple learning and behavior issues, life has been a struggle for him. Hes been beat up, bullied and teased since he started school for being different.  I've sold all I could but am still coming up short. I myself live on a very merger disability check and in no way can afford this amount. If you can donate to help my grandson, please do. Any amount will be forever appreciated. The biggest part of these 2 surgeries will be the 2and part where they have to break the lower jaw and put spacers in where the lower jaw connects to align it into a proper position for chewing and talking. 3 months estimated recovery time. He will have a home bound teacher come to our home for his schooling during these months so he wont fall behind.
