Please help us obtain genetic testing for our son so that his legal case is not dismissed.

According to the Constitution of The United States, we are given the right to life liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Except if you cannot afford the legal fees to obtain these inalienable rights. My son had a case pending with the Secretary of Health since 2006. I stress HAD because I just found out on Friday that his case will be dismissed unless I can obtain an expert opinion to prove his case by August 30th 2012. Unfortunately this entails genetic testing which is very costly and for which we do not have the funds to proceed. My son had a bad reaction to both of his MMR vaccines which caused regression, along with ASD and ultimately lead to him now being fed predominantly through a g-button. He has not participated in any social gathering since December 4, 2004 as he is instantly overwhelmed. He does not experience typical childhood carefree fun and spends his days indoors with me, his Mom. I am his soft spot in life but I know that I will not be here to protect him forever. It is my responsibility to secure his future. I held him down on the doctors table for his shots (I am not against vaccines, never have been, never will be, this is my third child and the only one who had a reaction) and told him they were for his own good not knowing he was predisposed to a reaction due to an underlying mitochondrial dysfunction. Now his future is at the mercy of our government and their endless funds and ability to dismiss a child's future, at will. I have to have him tested by an expert even though the labs and other doctor's opinions already state exactly what happened. As long as there is a breath in my body I will never stop trying to secure his right to a manageable life, with independence and all of the happiness he can handle.
