My youngest son has a bone cyst on his jaw bone that is constantly inflamed with infection, that the Dr.'s say is trying to reach his brain. It has literally been eating away his jaw bone, to the point that reconstructive surgery has been recommended. He has been hospitalized, treated in the ER several times etc. But the only thing to fix this problem is a surgery that costs $14,000!! Most Doctors we talked to won't touch it. The teeth above and around it have to come out so they can get to the cyst.
He is in pain every day! He can hardly eat anything! The infection is so bad, it has even changed the color of his eyes :-( I worry constantly that he will go to sleep and not wake up. Several Dr.'s have told us this CAN kill him, but without insurance or money they won't help of course! This is NOT a poor persons world :-(
We have been praying, researching and literally begging for months, trying to get someone to help him. We have finally come across a caring angel who happens to work at a clinic! She has gotten him in, he has been evaluated by their Dr. and he will do everything for $1500!! What a blessing!!! I now have a chance to help my son live! That is a lot easier to come up with than $14,000!
My childen are my life! So, my next step is to keep hoping, praying, and now here begging for help! Of course they won't give him an appointment or touch it until we pay. If we don't get the money soon, he will miss out on an appointment the first part of September, and then they don't know when they will have another opening.
Every little bit helps and even if you can't help, Please pray and share. Thanks and I promise to always Pay It Forward <3
