First Posted On: July 27, 2009

Name: Lila

Age: 7 years old

Location: California, USA

Diagnosis: Autism

Loan Sought: $3,000

Loan Needed For: 20 HBOT [hyperbaric oxygen therapy] dives

Repayment Terms: 18 months ($166.67/month).

Other Notes: Lila's mom writes, "Lila is an amazing 7 year old girl with autism presenting classically (DSM 299.00). She was diagnosed in Fall of 2005 at the age of two and a half and has been hard at work getting better since then. She follows DAN [Defeat Autism Now] protocol, is GFCF [gluten-free, casein-free], and has overcome challenges to gut, immune, and metabolic dysfunction that made her early entry into recovery pretty rocky. Lila has improved to a point where HBOT [hyperbaric oxygen therapy] is her last treatment we hope to yield some results that can get her over her sensory seeking behaviors, physical out-of-control-ness, and better her chances for social connection with peers. Lila has worked so hard to this point and has made some remarkable gains, and we feel she deserves the chance to recover. We believe the HBOT in addition to her 45 hours of weekly therapies including speech, occupational therapy, and behavior will further unlock her access to recovery!

For two years I have tried to raise the money for HBOT dives for Lila, but other medical/financial concerns have made it impossible for us to start the important protocol.

Lila needs HBOT now. We are seeking a $3,000 loan to get her started, and will take the dives though Hyperbaric Oxygen Clinic of Santa Monica, a vendor experienced in HBOT for autistic children. Help Lila exceed the limit she has hit in her recovery by lending toward this important treatment today!"

Dear Friends and Lenders:

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the incredible generosity and caring you all have outpoured for my daughter Lila in loaning her the money to begin Hbot treatment here in California!

For years I have dreamed of being able to get her started with this after seeing our friends experience some incredible results with this therapy. It remains to be seen how Lila will respond, but we will post a video update if the results are good and we plan to move forward with more dives.

All of you, from the moms, to the friends, to the business people, receive a huge standing ovation from Lila and I and again thank you from the bottom of our hearts for investing in Lila's health! And Thank you to Tori for having Lend4Health!!!
