We are asking for help raising money for Joshua Hewitt to help pay for his medical expenses from his fight with Crohn's disease.

Hello, My Son Joshua has a Disease called Crohn’s Disease. He has been struggling with it since he was twelve and was diagnosed when he was thirteen. He is now 17 and it has turned "moderate to severe" and he has had many complications along the way. This week he was hospitalized for an infection caused by fissures and fistulas and is now undergoing medical treatment that will be a lifelong fight to keep these potential recurrences from happening. He will have to endure many invasive and painful procedures on a regular basis such as colonoscopies and endoscopies. He will need to be on medicines administered through IV infusion by a nurse that visits our home, until hopefully the disease can be put into remission. Joshua is in need of help paying his recent and future medical bills. We do have medical insurance through my work but it doesn't cover everything and the deductible was $5,000 for this year alone that has already been met and now owed to Multicare. They won’t accept anything less than $300 a month, and that does not include the cost of his most recent week-long hospital stay and multiple bills for lab work etc that wasn't covered by his insurance. We are currently paying the minimum payments to keep all the medical bills from going into collections. We are a family of 4 and pay all of our bills on time and do what’s right, and yet we find ourselves in of need help, and prayers. So please if you can help Joshua, the money donated will be used to pay for Joshua's medical expenses. 

-Thank you, the Hewitts.
