Please help young mother with drug test

Unfortunately, we live in an (in)justice system that makes a profit off placing children in temporary foster custody up for adoption. As someone who has experienced the evils of this system firsthand, I am asking for help for a community member. 

When I gave birth to my twins, I requested that a drug test be completed. The nurse informed me that the test was positive for cocaine and opiates. Even with my insistence to take a blood sample to confirm the urine drug test was wrong, it wasn’t until the next morning an additional drug test on the original sample showed I was drug free.

I share my experience to ask for assistance for a community member fighting for custody of her child. We believe the court ordered drug tests are producing false positives and are seeking funds for testing at RedPoint. The tests are $35 each. To provide a second follow up test to each court ordered test, the mother must complete a RedPoint drug test twice a week for four weeks. We are asking community to assist with the $280 in fees for these secondary tests. Your help is fundamental to this mother proving her sobriety and maintaining custody of her child.
