Help Aiden & The Partlan Family

Five (5)year old Aiden has been diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome, a rare disorder where the immune system attacks the nervous system. On Monday October 30th he was running and jumping like a normal 5 year old... and 2 days later he had reached the point of paralysis and was admitted into the ICU on a ventilator. Aiden was just removed from the ventilator after a week but still remains in ICU. We are praying fo a full recovery but the road to recovery will be tough and long. Aiden has to re learn how to use his motor skills after this disease attacked his nerves, from walking to talking, even something as simple as swallowing has to be re learned. Recovery is predicted to take up to 12 months (possibly longer). Currently it seems Aiden will have to remain in the hospital for another month or so. Jennifer, Aiden's mother is off of work unpaid during this time to be with her son. Hospital costs and medical costs for rehabilitation and therapies will far exceed what their insurance will be able to cover. With the holidays on the horizon we want to bless this family with some financial assistance so they can focus on helping their son recover from this horrible disease. Please keep Aiden & his family in your thoughts and prayers.
