Helping CJ Kinard and family

As many of you know, CJ Kinard was admitted to hospital last week with an unknown illness. After days of tests, including a spinal tap and a lot of pain and worry, he was diagnosed with Lyme Meningitis. After transport to Greenville to have a port put in for his at home IV meds, he is finally home. After the worry of seeing their little boy in such pain and the unknown for several days before a diagnosis was given, Traci and Rick were so happy to get CJ home. Then another bomb hit - they were handed the bill for the meds he is to receive for the next 23 days at a whopping $250.00 per day! Being self employed, they have insurance and had made arrangements for if ever their deductible needed to be met. Ofcourse in the fine print is the seperate deductible for these meds. It's more than the $5750 needed at this time so the meds need to be paid in full. Anyone who knows Traci and Rick - knows that it took some convincing for them to allow me to do this go fund me. They are two of the most selfless people I have ever met and are always helping others. It's time for our community to help them. CJ needs these meds to get back to his crazy self and his mom and dad need to be able to focus on him and not worrying about how they're going to come up with the money to do so. Any amount, small or large will help. Thank you so much. Please share this post.
