Update: It looks like there has been an update on the site and it looks like the hospital is not acting very responsibly. Also, thanks to everyone who donated I’ve noticed that their amount collect has gone up by quite a bit since I checked on Monday.
Last week xCanuckleheadx brought something to our attention over the xentrecardx forums, and I couldn’t resist but give in to this father’s plea1.
A young boy has been diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer, and their insurance company will not pay for the treatment that is going to save his life. Even if the procedure didn’t cost $100,000, I still would not have expected this family of 5 to have been able to afford it all on their own2.
I’ve only donated a small amount, and they’re only asking for a small amount from each person. But for them to get the money they need to save their son we3 need to spread the word. You know those ads where celebrities tell you that it’ll only cost you less than $1 a day to help out a little child? Well, this will only cost you $1 ever, so long as you spread the word.
You can read more about it from his Scout.com forum post, or the dedication page they have on their website.
Since many of you who read my blog, also read the EC forums I know that you might already know about this but just in case there are some of my readers who hasn’t read about it yet.
Will you help?
