This loan is past due.
First Posted: August 8, 2009
Name: Avery & Anthony (Photo: Avery - top; Anthony - bottom, in hat)
Age: 4 years old (twins)
Location: Mississippi, USA
Diagnosis: Autism (both)
Loan Sought: $750 [reduced from $1,000 on Dec. 16, 2009]
Loan Needed For: IgE allergy test from Great Plains for Anthony ($600); MB12 shots for both for 1 month ($100); and anti-fungal meds (nystatin and nyzoral) for Avery ($50)
Repayment Terms: 18 months ($41.67/month)
Other Notes: Avery and Anthony's mom, Tanya, writes, "Avery and Anthony are making great progress since starting the gf/cf [gluten-free/casein-free] diet....and supplements. They are taking Super Nu Thera, Nordic Naturals fish oil, Kirkman's probio-gold, extra zinc, magnesium, MB12 shots, and congenital brain formula. They are repeating words now. Anthony has shown the most progress, but Avery is moderately autistic whereas Anthony's diagnosis is PDD-NOS. They can drink from big boy cups and Anthony is learning to eat with a fork as well as use the potty (sometimes). These are huge strides since February. That is when they started supplementing. Their DAN doctor, Dr. Calaghan, is urging us to get testing done. We know we could have answers that would help our boys out but their daddy is giving it all he has as the sole provider. They will be receiving ABA [applied behavior analysis therapy] in the fall for the first time by Dr. Mark Wildmon. I can't tell you how excited I am for this. It is an answered prayer. I certainly appreciate what Tori is doing for these little "messengers from God." I honestly feel that these kids were sent to show me what really matters and what things we need to stop putting into our bodies and theirs that are making us all sick. God bless everyone and all of our ASD [autism spectrum disorder] angels."
