Jeremy was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome when he was 2-3 years old. Tourette Syndrome is a neurological disorder that causes involuntary movements and sounds, called "Tics". this is certainly life altering and debilitating! Due to the loud noises and involuntary movements,Jeremy has been very misunderstood by the general public, teachers, and being bullied by fellow students is an understatement. Over the last several years his condition has progressively gotten worse.
Jeremy has had to be taken out of public schools, due to the kids bullying him. He has had to stop playing the sports he loves due to the debilitating syndrome. Jeremy hardly sleeps at night and nothing has brought him much relief. This family is continuing to fight for Jeremy. This has taken his father to work 60 plus hours a week and his mother only allowed to work part-time with all the doctors appointments, sleeples, nights, and rough days that he has to come home from school, Jeremy also has a younger sister. His parents never take a break just to keep up with the expenses. It is so hard to ask for help, but this is a family that has always opened their door and given anyone in need.
We are raising funds to help Jeremy and his family to survive for the years to come. Not only will they need assistance with the medical bills, but it's important to pay the household bills, travel expenses as some of the doctors visits are out of the state, food/necessities. This is only forJeremy and his family to heal the body, mind, and spirit without the financial burden.
We appreciate any amount of gift you may be able to extend, as the family moves through this difficult time toward recovery. We ask for your generosity, your prayer, and good wishes. Lets answer this familes prayers with a thunderous noise of gratitude and joy for everything this family has always given to others in need.
We want Jeremy to be able to lead and experience a normal childhood and look forward to enjoying his adult life.
Please help spread the word, as we are forever grateful!
