Jack and Dustins therapy fund

I am trying to get my boys the help they need to heal from the very abusive home they lived in with Dad. They were witness to their stepmom being physically abused and they themselves suffered verbal, physical and mental abuse far beyond what I can describe here. I am struggling financially, even just to pay our rent and put food on the table. My oldest son is so riddled with anxiety that he currently can't function in life and needs to be in inpatient care for intensive therapy. My younger son suffers from PTSD from witnessing his stepmom being beaten, himself being waterboarded by his dad, choked, forced to smoke weed. The list goes on and on. I know there are many people in my position, but if you can find it in your heart to contribute I can promise you that I will pay it forward when I am able to.
