Zachary's Transplant Fund
During all this time Laura, our mother, has had to take time off of work to care for him at the hospital and transport him to various doctor appointments. And now that it's time for the transplant, she's run out of Paid Time Off (PTO). Now she's safe from losing her job due to the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). But this means all the time that she's at the hospital with Zak recovering and the doctor appointments following the transplant will be unpaid and leaving them in a hard place. They will have to travel from Stonington CT to Hartford CT (which is about an hour's drive as long as there's no traffic) twice a week for at least a month following the transplant.
Zachary can't drive because he is legally blind on top of many other medical problems that he has faced. Like I have previously mentioned he had a transplant when he was 11. But before that when he was 6 his spinal cord swelled into his brain and paralyzed him from the chest down and also completely blind. He spent months in the hospital and eventually regained use of his limbs but his site was 90% gone.
Please any way in which you can help would be greatly appreciated.
