Alex' mother (Frances) is attempting to raise money to help with her son's eye surgery. Please show your support.

UPDATE:  Good Morning everyone...TODAY IS ALEX' FINAL DAY FOR THE FUND RAISER.  I HAVE 16 HOURS LEFT - IT IS APPROX. 7:45 A.M.  I ASK THAT YOU GIVE 10, 20, 30...WHATEVER YOU CAN.  TO THOSE THAT HAVE DONATED....THANK YOU!.  Here's my story again:  Let me introduce you to my son, Alex. He is 12 years old, is in 6th grade, and he loves school. He also enjoys joking around and telling silly jokes. Alex has had vision problems since the day he was born. 2 years ago, his vision started getting worse. The Dr. had me try several things to improve his vision, but nothing worked. His vision on his left eye is practically gone. His right eye is unfolding the same way. In spite of the fact that he gets teased because of his "funny looking eyes" he has managed to make friends. Alex enjoys surfing the net, playing videos, watching cartoons, and he loves to read chapter books. I worry because he needs his eyesight to do these things that he enjoys so much. And although Alex' problem is not as severe as other children who have lost their sight completeley, I have to do what I can for my son. I never thought I would find myself in this position. There are no guarantees to this surgery, but i have to at least try for his sake. I wish you could meet my son, he is so full of life, he is a generous, happy, and a loving child. Wants nothing but the best for others......if I could give him my eyes I would. Please Please, help me with what you can. I just need enough to cover the out of pocket expense. I hope in the future I will be able to pay it forward.
