Like most high-order multiples, they spent some time in the NICU as feeders and growers. Overall, they are very happy and healthy babies, but Lincoln and Lucy were both diagnosed with plagiocephaly and torticollis, when they were a few months old.
Physical therapy has significantly improved their core strength and range of motion, but cannot reshape Lincoln's head.
His misshaping is severe enough to warrant helmet therapy; his ear and facial features are shifting. Obviously we want to do everything in our power to help him.
Unfortunately, the $2500 for his helmet is not covered. Insurance considers it primarily cosmetic -- facial asymmetry-- despite the major ear issues and jaw misalignment that can result.
Our pediatrician and physical therapists all referred us for the cranial exam. This is not simply cosmetic.
Up until now, we've financially managed being a family of 9, but this new expense is simply too high.
I hate asking for help but, pride aside, our child's health is of utmost importance. Our first payment, of a minimum of $300 is due on Sep 6th, when he goes in for his scans and fitting.
Any amount, even a dollar or two, helps!! It all adds up.
If you are unable to financially help, we completely understand. More importantly, please join us in prayer for the babies' health, and that early intervention will correct the problems.
Thanks so much, friends and family!
Love, Fred, Wendy, Belle, Ethan, Trevor, Oliver, Lincoln, Liberty, and Lucy
