￼Little 8 year old Allen had a drowning accident on July 22, 2016
On December 8th 2016, after winning a battle in court to save their son's life, the one facility that was willing to take him was so far away that it was unreasonable to move their entire family to Chicago with the highest crime rate.
They were able to take their boy home on grounds of training where Tasha, his mother, cares for him while she waits for him to wake up. Meanwhile Clint, takes care of the other six kids.
His parents love him so much and are so committed to him waking up that Tasha had to miss her own sister and two nephews funerals and another family member's funeral, all in the last 2 weeks because Allen's care is the most important thing to them, but the good news is that a doctor in New Orleans called Clint and Tasha to tell of a young girl he'd saved after a near-drowning accident using hyperbaric oxygen therapy. He needs 40 sessions and they will need to be there for a minimum of 8 weeks.
They are looking into a conversion van that will accommodate Allen for the 30-hour drive to New Orleans.
The cost for the doctor and the 40 treatments is $9,000 which their insurance will not cover. They will also need money for food and lodging for the eight weeks minimum that they will be there.
It would be a miracle if Allen were to be sitting at the table for Thanksgiving this year! Please find it in your heart to even donate a dollar. Every dollar counts. This would be the gift of life for this family who has had so much tragedy recently.
I'm not sure if 20,000 is enough but it's a great start. All money will be used directly for the care of Allen and his family to be able to be there with him.
If you want to donate anonymously and you only have a dollar to give, that would be a blessing because every dollar adds up. Thank you all and God bless! Philippians 4:13
