Help for my son

Stemming from an old injury Antonio,  my son,  is facing many challenges.  Medical, emotional and spiritual healing are desperately needed.  As many of us feel; i love my children and will do all i can to help them.  When my son came to me; letting me know what he was going thru,  contemplating suicide because his quality of life was quickly deteriorating and experiencing so much pain. I could relate having my own medical issues but to contemplate suicide!  I knew it was time to jump into action.  I helped him apply for insurance thru marketplace & we are now waiting to hear from Medicaid.  Seeking medical attention, establishing a pcp, referrals to specialists, and community based counseling.  Antonio's medical bills are piling;  consultations,  biopsies,  testing all self pay is much to cope with.  Antonio is a senior @ UTSA with only a semester left to  complete his bachelor's. Trying to secure funding for his education has also been an obstacle. I can't even imagine how he must feel being so close to his goal and feeling so helpless and alone.  Terrible weight to bear.  I pray i am able to lessen his load.  I ask for your help, for your prayers to get Antonio thru this & becoming better and doing his best.  At 24 yrs old he should be at the prime of his life, i want him to know it is still attainable.
