Help Marc get away from his grandmother.

Marc was born on July 19, 1998. He was a healthy baby, he always loved to play, go to the park, etc. In 2008, Marc started having "drop attacks." We took him to the hospital, to have tests done, but they couldn't find anything. Marc continued to pass out, at random times. The drop attacks got worse and worse, it started out at 5 a day, and went to 100 times a day. We kept taking him for tests, but they couldn't find anything. In 2009, we took Marc to NYU Medical Center, in New York. He had an EEG. We were supposed to be there a week, but we were only there for 3 days. On the 3 day, the doctors came to me whilst Marc was asleep, and told me that his drop attacks were from sexual abuse. After we got home from New York, I started to ask Marc about the abuse. He came to me and told me that his grandmother abused him. I waited a week, to see if his story was consistent, and it was. I went to Children and Family Services, and they interviewed him about the abuse. After the interview was done, we got home and they called us, saying nothing could be done, there was no proof. Marc has been getting counseling, for about a year. Marc has to live with his grandmother, because of money issues. We can't afford to leave, or buy a new home. She doesn't give Marc money for counseling anymore, she says that just because he was abused doesn't mean he needs help. With your donation, we can get Marc to a new home, and help with his counseling. Thank you for reading, and have a nice day.
