Todd and I have been lucky. Thus far we've been able to afford everything Riley needs. Knowing interventions for autism were available, hearing that time clock tick, knowing windows of opportunity to help our child were shrinking, and being unable to afford bio-med treatments? I would have gone out of my freaking mind.
Lend 4 Health provides interest-free micro-loans for the biomedical treatment of people with autism. Leave it to those in the autism community to come up with a way to circumvent the fact medical insurance doesn't cover our kids! Screw 'em! We'll find our own way.
For those who see autism all around and don't know how they can help, this is an easy way to do something. A couple of clicks and you're on your way. As we saw with Riley's service dog effort, collective efforts add up quickly, and make a huge difference in the lives of those living with autism.
Next time you see someone with autism and wish you could help, consider making a loan to Lend 4 Health.
I'll conveniently leave it on my blog roll, so you can find it any old time you want, okay?
