Mia's family and friends are united to help pay for Autism treatment expenses. Please help Mia recover! We are thankful for your support.

Mia is a beautiful 6 year old little girl. She was born a happy baby. She met all her development milestones. She was on her way to become an amazing little, loving, and sweet. When she was 1 year old she had a series of vaccinations that changed her life and our world. She became antisocial. Her smile and eye contact disappeared and language was not existant. She developed skin rashes and was very moody. I remember looking into her eyes. I knew my baby was in there....trapped in her own body. I felt really lost and helpless. After many nights of research I came upon a website for a DAN doctor. We made an appointment and that's when our journey to recovery started. She was provided with some services by the Regional Center. But we have been paying all the expenses for her biomedical treatment. We changed her diet; she has been taking an array of vitamin supplements and medications. We have tried chelation and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (which had amazing results). Mia started to say words after her oxygen therapy. Right now we are trying Neurofeeback. This therapy requires brain mapping and "rewiring" the communication paths of the brain to improve communication, social skills, and emotional attachments. This treatment alone cost us $8,000 (which we are still paying). We have spent thousands and thousands of dollars and we haven't yet traveled halfway. There are so many other tratments, therapies, and medications that have been proven to help children with autism. Please help us keep the hope alive for Mia! It has been 4 years. Some things have worked and some haven't. But we don't want to give up. She has a brain disease. I need to help her. Please support my cause. Please support my baby girl's hope for a world without limits.
