Stanley McDonald was born May 18th 2009 and has been plagued with undiagnosed health issues a majority of his short life.

Stanley was born May 18th 2009 and has been plagued with undiagnosed health issues a majority of his short life. Stan has been through countless doctors, numerous wrong diagnoses and even an unneeded surgery.

Our family was insured for a portion of the time and still managed to rack up over 60k in various medical related debts.

First he was given a pyloric stenosis surgery, because of his chronic vomiting and inability to gain weight. When the vomiting did not subside we took him out of NJ to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. They ran gazillions of tests and sent him home again without a clear path of treatment or even a diagnosis on paper to submit to insurance.

Months passed and Stan was still underweight and vomiting frequently. We decided to take the trek up to Boston and bring him to the best children's gastroenterologist we could find. There he was finally diagnosed with Cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS).

CVS is a condition where he gets migraines until he throws up. We currently are on a good course of treatment and hope to be able to afford to keep him on the expensive medicine he requires.

Stanley is an amazing little boy. He lights up all of our lives and we are blessed to know him. Watching him get healthy is the most important thing in our lives even if it comes at great sacrifice.

We appreciate any help you can give towards the unbelievable amount of debts from private doctors, specialists, medicine, blood draws, specialty formulas, x-rays etc...

Thank you for taking the time to read this, but most importantly.... thank you for helping my son.
