Hearing Enmanuel's Voice
Organized by: Enmanuel Mejia Diaz
I am helping my in-laws secure funds to help their autistic child, Enmanuel, who is four years old and has yet to speak. Despite years of therapy, Enmanuel's autism is so severe that little changes have been seen. His parents are of modest means and they live in the Dominican Republic. They have hope that more advanced treatments in the United States will help Enmanuel find his voice. As you can see from pictures of him, he enjoys many things and is a cheerful boy, but without hope for finding his voice with the limited medical options in the Dominican Republic he may not have a very bright future. I am asking you to help change that and give Enmanuel a fighting chance. His parents will need funds for travel, lodging, and meals, as well as the actual medical expenses for treatments in the U.S. They are hoping to raise enough money to make sustained trips over a period of a full year in the hopes of helping Enmanuel find his voice.
