Boston-or-Bust for Noah's Treatment

Donation protected
My youngest son Noah is 10 years. This photo of Noah with his sister Jewelia was taken after she got out of the pediatrician's office. She had gotten an immunization. He didn't know my friend Ginger was shooting the pic. He was content to sit on those mossy steps and give his sister a hug. His heart is that big and wonderful! But Noah is suffering. He has a condition called Encopresis or Long-Term Constipation. He doesn't show it but his stomach always hurts. We live in Rochester, NY and we need to take him to the Boston Children's Hospital in October. He needs to have some very specialized motility studies. Only a small handful of Hospitals in the United States perform them. He needs a colonic and ano-rectal motility exam. Please click link from Boston Children's for more info:

His father and I need the funds to rent a car for the 14 hour drive from home to there and back, gas, food and lodging for at least 3 days and maybe be able to take Noah sightseeing. I would love to be able to explore one of the country's earliest colony with him. I would love to be able to stand where the original Tea Partiers stood on the Boston Harbor and make him understand better why I am as outspoken about the fate of our Country today. Please help us make a horrible experience into a somewhat memorable life affirming trip. God Bless all who stop and consider a gift for our son.
