Funding for special school

Please help our dear friend Becky. Her son,Hunter, was diagnosed with autism at a young age, and has struggled with that diagnosis and mental illness his entire life. He is now 12 years old and has also struggled with medical issues, including the recent insertion of a Gtube for Tube feeding due to his stomach not working properly, and also autonomic dysfunction where his blood pressures were as low as 63/36. These medical issues have caused Hunter a lot of disruption and unfortunately he needs to be placed somewhere for a while to get intense treatment and proper medical care. They are still in the hospital, but have been given a week to make some life-changing decisions. Hunter struggles with attachment disorder and developmental trauma. His biological father left and cut him out of his life at a young age without so much as a goodbye. Becky has spent every dollar she has, every spare moment of her time, every ounce of strength to find help for her little boy. She has sacrificed jobs, relationships, her own health. Now it appears that the best solution, is a Christian therapeutic boarding school in Michigan that specializes in his specific needs. They have tried every avenue in the state of PA and nobody has been able to help them. The conditions, staff, and “solutions” at these places are despicable. Hunter has been abused more than once at placements in PA. Unfortunately, the school is not covered by insurance. Becky would have to pay out of pocket to get Hunter the care he so desperately needs and deserves. Please help in any way you can to heal this family.
