Medical Necessity

I am reaching out today to support a dear friend and colleague who has a close relative with severe cognitive and physical disabilities. This gentle soul was recently and swiftly removed from the residential facility in which he lived due to alleged sexual assault. When I heard the story of this young man and his family my 1st reaction was to go after the person that  caused harm to this beautiful being. Once I came to my senses I decided I could help in a realistic way so this is the 1st time I have ever created a Go Fund Me page. Here is a bit of his medical history:
   degenerative brain disorder
   rare skin disorder called ichthyosis x-linked steroid sulfatase
   Seizure disorder
   feeding tube due to his failure to thrive
   Unable to walk
   non-verbal

Despite all of his conditions, he will still laugh, love, and welcome all who enter the room with a smile. He and his family are filled with gratitude everyday, and do their best to make the situation work. Since moving back home their needs have changed.  He will now require an accessible bathtub; one that has a door in which he can transfer from his wheelchair with ease. This will alleviate the painstaking chore for his parents,as well as ensuring the safety of all involved. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this and contribute to this worthy cause.
