Please help me support Daniel and his family during his 4 month stay at Kennedy Kreiger Institute in Baltimore.

Daniel Recio is a 13 year old boy suffering complications from H1N1 he contracted in October of 2009. The virus has attacked his central nervous system and his current diagnosis is Chronic Pain Syndrome.

Daniel is in severe pain and he is unable to walk or eat. He has lost 33 pounds and currently has a feeding tube for nutrition.

After enduring many extremely painful tests and treatments it was advised that Daniel go to an inpatient facility in Baltimore Maryland called Kennedy Kreiger Institute. His anticipated stay is 3 to 4 months.

He and his mother Sarah have been there since October 25th and his father Rick has stayed home to care for his twin brother and sister.

Daniel is making strides at Kennedy Kreiger. He has gained 8 pounds and he is able to tolerate the daily 6 hour therapies better every day.

Being away from his family is very difficult for both he and Sarah, but Daniel's prognosis is good. His goal is to walk out of the hospital and reunite with his family and friends.

Please help me offset the financial burden that has been placed on this family. Sarah has taken an extended leave of absence from teaching and the expenses of staying in Baltimore are overwelming. Join me in helping to heal Daniel by offering your prayers and support and we will all celebrate his return home.
