Masyn's Mental Health & Legal Fees

Hi Everybody,

I created this campaign for a little boy who has been facing some big challenges for the last few years and for a single mom who has done everything she can up to this point on her own. 

Currently, Masyn is dealing with some mental health issues, including suicide threats, running away, and a hopelessness that a 9-year-old shouldn’t have to experience. He's had a tough couple of years and now it's time for a court ordered forensic psychiatrist to get involved. And surprise!... those guys aren't covered by insurance. In fact, the upfront cost of $5k only covers the forensic psychiatrist. From there, the fees for therapists and treatment are unknown. 

In addition, there is an overdue custody battle that is about to start. His mother has tried joint custody, but that has only proved to be more damaging than good. Masyn needs to be with his mother 100% because she will ensure that he gets the care that he desperately needs. At this time, those are all the details that I can provide due to legal reasons. I am hopeful and pray that we can raise more than our goal, knowing that the legal fees will most likely surpass the medical ones. 

I know that his mom is willing to put all of this on credit cards and bury herself in debt in order to take care of her son, but I don't think that's necessary. I think it's time to rally around a little dude that needs to know that there are people able and ready to help in a situation that seems irreparable.  

Thank you for any help you can provide. If you can’t donate at this time, please send messages of love and encouragement for Masyn.
