Help Baby Brody's sweet parents pay all the medical bills to make sure that Brody gets the BEST medical care he can :)

Brody has Plagiocephaly and Tortocollis and is now in therapy for his shorten, and tight neck muscle. Due to his Plagiocephaly he is having some shifting in some of his facial features and his skull isnt shaping how it should be. He is also getting a helmet which we went for the fitting today and should be getting it on within a week! He will wear this helmet 23 hours a day for six months. We have been on a huge roller coaster going from doctor to doctor since his 4 month check up. His peditrician which is AMAZING, spotted this early on which is a great thing! First we had to eliminate fluid on the brain because his head measurments have been increasing faster than they should. On a great note, we went for a ultrasound on his brain and there were no signs of fluid build up! So then after the ultrasound we were sent to a Plastic surgeon which works on babies with Plagiocephaly and other features on babies at the Childrens hospital here. He then had us sent to a Prosthetics and Orthotics for his helmet, and a place also for his physical therapy to be taken place. We are very thankful his peditricain spotted all this early on because he wont have to wear the helmet as long being only 5 months old, after about 7 months they have to wear this helmet for a year. After about a year old, there is no fixing this problem, due to the skull hardening. With his torticollis, due to no treatment this could lead to surgery later on.
We've been to many doctors and everyone knows those visits are not cheap, we have plenty of doctor bills coming in. Brodys insurance, TRICARE doesnot cover the cranial molding helmet. Most insurance companies do not. So due to this, just if any way possible if you could pass the word around and if possible any help we would highly appreciate it!
