Raising money for treatment for my goddaughter, Gabby as she struggles with Autism. All funds will pay for therapy not covered by insurance.

My beautiful Goddaughter, Gabriella was born 8/15/10. She is going to be 2 years old soon and has been diagnosed with autism. Everyday she struggles to become who she is because of her lack to communicate (non-verbal and does not use hand gestures), her sensory input and output is off which affects her in her own environment. My best friend is a stay at home mome of three whom I am the godmother to all and that being said, I am choosing to try to help them out so they can maintain services that insurance does not cover. My best friends husband works everyday and is home late at night not being able to ever see his family because they have medical bills for treatments and therapies to help their beautiful angel. So many children these days are being diagnosed with autism and the sad part is no cause or cure is known. Parents try everything to help their child on the spectrum to engage in the enviroment we all know and understand. I would know this, I have a child on the spectrum whom is 5 years old now and his neurologist is very happy and pleased with his progress. I know what the medical bills look like and the burden you feel and I dont want this for my best friend and her family. Gabby needs all the help she can get and the growing medical bills and funds is limiting her from her services even with the state services that she is on waiting lists for. Autism is a life long condition. Please help change my best friend's life and her family in believing their is hope and other people care for the families struggling and affected by autism everyday for life. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. I want to see my best friend smile when her daughter can tell her "I love you Mommy and Daddy".

If you feel uncomfortable about making donations here, please feel free to mail the checks to my home and when the fundraiser is over I will overnight her a card with all your checks in it so she knows who helped support her and can return her thank you to you all. Being this a surprise for her, mailing checks to her would let her know what we are all doing to help her so I encourage all not to do so. If you would like to mail it to her then you can email me and I will be glad to email you her address,

Please make all checks payable to: Marielena Acosta
