plagiocephaly helmet for Katharine

Katharine was born with Torticollis which is basically a very tight muscle in her neck that didn't allow her to turn her head to the left, because of that anytime we were not holding her she would lay on the right side of her head. That caused the bones in her scull to shift which is called plagiocephaly or flat head syndrome. To fix this she has to wear a helmet to help reshape her head so that she doesn't have depth perception issues as she gets older.  We are doing physical therapy at home with her on her neck to help loosen the muscle and so that the muscle doesn't tighten back up. We have to do this until she is 24 months old.  The helmet she will have to wear for 3 to 5 months and it is highly recommended that they get into the helmet as close to 4 months as possible so that they are not in it even longer. Unfortunely like most people we don't have the money to  get her the helmet as we have to cover a big part of the cost before insurance will pay anything. So we are asking for any help possible to be able to get her this helmet. Anything will be greatly appreciated.  Thank You so much.
