My name is Asilla Imani (aka Ivy Rasool). I am the wife of Shaykh Ali Abu-Talib and the grandmother of almost 3-year old Toa Idris, my one and only grandchild. He’s the joy of my life, a charmer with the best smile, and sweetest personality.
His parents and I are seeking help in funding the chiropractic care he needs for issues he’s suffered from since birth. These include severe constipation (during the rare times he goes); his tendency of extreme excitability and anxiety; and his problems with speech acquisition which led to a diagnosis of ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). He currently receives 2-hours of speech therapy each week.
Toa Idris is high strung, cries often, can be hard to calm or focus, and struggles with sleep and communication.
A year ago, before Toa Idris’ diagnosis, we took him in to be examined by renowned chiropractor Dr. Gina Caserma for help with his constipation.
It turns out that he not only has a ‘severe’ misalignment in the area controlling bowels, but severe misalignments in his cervical (neck) and mid back as well.
There is an issue with his vagal nerve affecting language acquisition too. As Dr. Caserma explained, “Toa is stuck on gas, his adrenal glands in overdrive.”
God willing, once his spine is adjusted and his body heals itself, he will no longer have these issues.
After a new scan and exam, Dr. Caserma wrote Toa’s Restorative Plan that will take four months of three weekly adjustments (48 visits). The total cost is $3380.00.
However, we can save $500 if we pay $2883 up front. Though this is comparatively inexpensive, we cannot afford the expense. Thus, we are asking our friends, family, brothers and sisters to help us raise the money needed to get my grandchild this much needed treatment.
May God Bless All Your Generous Efforts Done For Us And This Child.
