STAND MINISTRIES INC's Fundraiser:

Let's Help Paige Fight Autism

THE STORY:

This is the story of Paige - a beautiful brown-eyed, nine-year-old with Autism. At first, she loved to laugh, color, watch cartoons, have tea parties and do all the things little girls like to do.  

Unable to communicate even her basic needs, Paige screams, hits her head against the wall, bites and scratches those around her which makes it extremely difficult for her to attend school. Autism has stolen Paige from us and with your help, we want her back.

To add insult to injury, Paige was diagnosed with a severe seizure disorder about a year ago. Her doctors don’t understand the cause and are conducting genetic testing to find some answers.  

Paige began applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy; and after a year, was able to participate in a regular classroom with a helper and enjoy some simple pleasures.  ABA therapy helps autistic children develop and unlock skills and abilities that can allow them to function in society.  After exhausting the available biomedical options (with only marginal results), intensive ABA therapy is the only hope for Paige.  

In the past, insurance did not cover the cost of treating autism. Recent changes to healthcare now require coverage of autism treatments.  Still, projected out-of-pocket costs are in excess of $65,000 per year.  

This overwhelming financial burden has made it impossible for Paige to continue her therapy. And now Paige’s behavior and skills have declined precipitously.  

In reality, ABA therapy is the last hope to give Paige the gift of stability and normalcy in her life.  Any financial contribution you can make will help alleviate these overwhelming costs and give Paige the happiness she deserves.
