Joe's Medical and Physical Therapy

Joe LaGravinese is a wonderful husband and a great dad to two beautiful daughters.  He has a good job. He is a great provider. Now he needs help.   2 years ago, he started with issues which seemed like anxiety. He experienced dizziness and neck problems. Initial medical visits  said stress related as tests were all negative.  About 9 months ago, Joe was diagnosed with Dystonia-a neurological movement disorder syndrome in which sustained or repetitive muscle contractions result in twisting and repetitive movements. It has mainly affected his neck. He now has Torticollis, a dystonic condition defined by an abnormal, asymmetrical head or neck position.  During this time, he and his wife had been preparing to become foster parents. As they took  young children into their  home for foster care, Joe had to go to work as well as physical therapy and treatments- which were not helping.  They now have a 3 month old foster child, along with their two daughters. They are hoping to eventually adopt him, but the medical bills are starting,  Recent MRI's and MRA's   thankfully turned out negative, but Joe's medical insurance deductible was not even met and he needs to pay out of pocket- as well as find a new avenue of treatment.  Please , if you can, donate to help him. Joe would never ask for a handout. He never has. But I am asking for him. I am his dad, and it is breaking my heart to see my son go through this.  Thank you all...
