Loan Needed For: Organic acid test (urine) for each child ($480) and comprehensive stool analysis test for one child ($330)

Repayment Terms: 18 months ($45/month).

Other Notes: Elisha & Ethan's mom, Abigail, writes, "Meet my kids Elisha and Ethan, both were diagnosed with autism. They are my life and it's just so heartbreaking to see them struggle just with everything. They've been on the GFCF [gluten-free, casein-free] diet for a year now, Elisha has just started her B12 shots, and Ethan will have his shots soon. I have been doing the best I can to help my kids, but I just can't do everything at the same time, because there's two of them. I am asking for this loan for tests. I am praying that there will be people out there with a good heart to extend their help for Elisha and Ethan. Thank you and GOD bless you..."

It can be hard but I work on one child at a time. I have two with autism too. Do you know about agree? They are a research agency i ncalifornia that comes to you and does blood sample to help families like us. Consider them. If free of charge.
