Pain relief for Dex

Declan (Dex) is a 14-year-old teenager that use to love playing and watching AFL. Now he can't even watch a full live game without being totally overcome with intense pain.  

Dex has a number of chronic conditions that affect everyday functioning: Amplified musculoskeletal pain syndrome (AMPS), Chronic Fatigue, Anxiety, and Depression and Lymphedema. The everyday task of going to school at times is too hard. Recently on the way to school, he passed out from the pain as it was just all too much. 

Declan's basic medical bills cost a minimum of $2,500 per month. When his pain and mood are escalated those costs get even higher. Unfortunately, as a sole parent, his mum just can't keep up. It is really hard for her to ask for help, but it has now come to the stage where either she reaches out of help or Declan won't get any support as all her funds are drained. 

Nicole says- It is heartbreaking to see your child in so much pain. I know there are more services we can use however I just can't afford to do them. 

Please help relieve Dex's pain.
