Marissa's Challenge

Organized by: Deborah Malinowski

Our daughter, Marissa--the very light of our lives--was born with very low muscle tone and didn't walk until she was almost three years old. She continues to struggle with low muscle tone, as well as other delays, both physical and cognitive. We have been to many specialists, and still no formal diagnosis. We have been told that some of her cognitive challenges may be related to her "awake" brainwaves occurring throughout the night, and vice-versa, disallowing her from getting enough deep sleep and causing a serious inability to concentrate during the day. We looked into an amazing, non-invasive medical brain treatment. We tried it for one week and saw improvement! – we were amazed. In order to make real change in her life, she needs 4 weeks of daily treatment (with possible annual visits). We have worked out some of the $11,000 cost (+ housing and expenses of $2,000), but still can’t afford this. Won't you consider helping?
