Help Ben get Better

Dear Friends,
My son Ben has been battling bipolar disorder for a long time now. A brilliant maker/fixer/doer, sculptor, actor, friend, and fountain of knowledge, he's worked hard and accomplished great  things.  In the past several years he completed his studies with a degree in electromechanical engineering and moved to Philadelphia where he’s working successfully in his chosen field. He nevertheless has had to be hospitalized more than once in that time for serious depression, as is currently the case. Even with his insurance, the expenses for psychiatric inpatient and follow-up care-paired with income lost from missed work-are far beyond what he and I can handle on our own. 
If you know Ben (Bon) and appreciate his struggles, please donate what you can to help him get back on track.  He would never ask, so I'm doing it on his behalf and I thank you for your kindness and support. Any amount is appreciated. If unable to donate please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
