This is my super sweet, and cute nephew Benjamin! He was recently diagnosed with Plagiocephaly which is when the shape of the baby's head isn't symetrical. This can result in many issues in the future.
Angela and Andrew do have insurance but it won't cover the cost because the asymmetry measurements are only 9mm off they won't cover anything until babies are 10mm off. The doctor is still recommending the DOC band.
They have already tried to appeal it with no luck.
Both Angela and Andrew are working hard to support their family but are struggling to come up with the needed amount for the "Helmet" he will need to wear. Andrew is recently back to work full time after going through months of health issues himself.
We've never used GoFundMe before but since this is a Time Sensitive issue we're taking a chance. If much more time passes his skull will harden making treatment not an option. I have included photos with more information.
The treatment will be around $2,400. The reason we are aiming for $2,800 is due to a percentage being taken by GoFundMe as well as multiple Follow-up appointments this will take.
If you'd like to contribute more privately you may message myself, Angela or Andrew. We bank with Chase and Wells Fargo if you'd rather help straight through that way.
Thank you for reading and helping if possible. Please share if you'd like! Thanks!
