Our son Judah has to be circumcised again at the age of 7 and is having the surgery on 11/11/14. On top of the emotions and such of dealing with that, we're trying to stay positive for our son. It's crucial the procedure is done as I'm losing my job in January...as well as my health benefits ($400+/month). I was just informed by the urologist office that we will owe them $2,000 by 11/3 for the doctor's fee (which does NOT include the hospital fees and anesthesiologist fees).
This is a result of Judah being seen by pediatricians for 6 YEARS and being misdiagnosed.  Now, we're literally left to pay for it emotionally and physically.   My primary focus has been preparing for the recovery period, which has been derailed by the new stress of coming up with the fee. 
We're reaching out to all of our friends and family for support in a difficult, emotional time.  Any donation would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Thank you for your support!

We're SO CLOSE to hitting our $2,000 goal! We have received 2 cash donations so with that included, we're only $130 away from hitting the target! As I said, due to time constraints, this will be the last day to donate. We cannot express our gratitude enough! We're overwhelmed with the support and feel truly blessed. Our love to all of you and your families!
