THIS CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN CLOSED

EVENT DATE Apr 01, 2016
I have had some inquiries on how to donate money to Christopher's intensive therapy trip this year....so after much consideration we decided to make it easy and start a fundraising site. Christopher is an amazing little boy (he'll be 3 in April) with PMM2 Congenital Disorder of Glycosylation. Nearly every body system is affected by this genetic condition. He works hard to do nearly everything, including holding his head up. Christopher attends weekly therapy sessions of physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Repetition is extremely important for Christopher to strengthen his weak muscles and learn how to do many things. He is working very hard currently on bearing weight and sitting without support. He is heading to California in April for intensive therapy; 4 hours of therapy per day for 4 weeks straight. The costs of this trip are enormous as insurance does not cover all of the therapy and mounting travel costs. *Christopher will also be bringing Super Hero Capes to other little heroes at the therapy center! For each donation we will make another cape to give to a child in your honor.* Also, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a cape to purchase!!
