Vinny's Medical Fund

As many of you know Vinny was diagnosed with two bad kidneys after a high fever and a stay at the hospital.  He has grade 5 reflux in his kidneys along with hydronephrosis.  He takes sulfur every night to stop him from getting sick again.
We are coming up on his yearly tests to see if it's improved or if he is going to need surgery.  We would like to have it done at Boston's Children's Hospital since they are ranked #1 for his condition.  Unfortunately our insurance is not going to cover the tests and also if surgery is needed.
We have decided to pay out of pocket and get him the best care possible. 
Right now the tests are schedule for Monday, October 12th and we will know more after that.
I am still trying to fight with the insurance and also looking to other organizations for some help.
Anything would be greatly appreciated.
