All funds will be used for Michael's medical expenses and any traveling we have to do for Michael' s medical treatments.

Michael is a 9 year old little boy that suffers from a rare autoimmune disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis. His white blood cells are attacking his digestive system. There is no cure for this disease at this time. He relys on a feeding tube and a special amino acid based formula to survive. He is only able to eat four foods and they are Chicken, Broccoli, Potatoes and Oatmeal. He has eaten those for five years and is tired of them. He can not have what every child wants like pizza, ice cream and all the other kids friendly foods. He gets some of his care in Ohio at the Cincinnati Center for Eosinophilic Disorders. This fund has been set up to help with medical expenses and to allow us to travel as needed to Cincinnati, OH to see the specialist. Michael also is being tested for another disease in the next two weeks, he will be having a spinal tap and muscle biopsy to see if he has a Mitochondrial Disease. Any and all donations will help and would be greatly appreciated. As a mother the hardest thing in the world is to see your child suffer but its even worse when there is very little you can do to stop it.
