Weston has not drawn a paycheck for 4 months, is living off dwindling savings and is currently fighting what may be ultimately a futile battle with 2 insurance companies over his disability policies... because Lyme is so misunderstood by the medical community, it is something the insurance companies like to deny claims over. Imagine that: insurance companies wanting your premiums, but not wanting to pay when you need them.
So, here's the deal: Weston and his wife Tabitha are expecting their second child, a son, in about a month. His health insurance just reset it's deductible. Weston also hopes to travel to Arizona or Florida for a consultation ASAP with a clinic that specializes in treating Lyme; perhaps followed by cutting-edge treatment for Lyme that will be not be paid for by health insurance. He needs to travel out of state and reside at a treatment facility for up to 2 months because no local physician he has seen has been able to offer him any hope.
A few family members have been helping Weston and Tabitha along as best we could, but it's time to pull out the stops and look to a bit larger circle for help. We are trying to scrape up enough money for the birth of the baby, treatment for the Lyme and provide for living expenses that have become a burden. Our goal is $30,000 (of which $5,000 has already been raised prior to starting the GoFundMe campaign).
While your prayers are definitely coveted and appreciated, anything you can do from a practical/financial standpoint to help will be greatly appreciated.
