Make a Microloan for 6-yr old Logan T's Health!

This loan has been repaid!

First Posted On: June 21, 2010

Name: Logan T.

Age: 6 years old

Location: Illinois, USA

Diagnosis: Autism

Loan Sought: $1,200

Loan Needed For: Stool test ($400); blood work (cost TBD); follow-up appointment with DAN! doctor ($300); and supplements -- Kirkman Labs Multi-Vitamin w/P5P, Serotonin, Vitamin D, Zinc, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Magnesium Citrate, Digest, and Epsom Salts.

Repayment Terms: 15 months ($80/month)

Other Notes: Logan's mom, Mary, writes, "Logan is a sensational six year old boy. He has a smile and sense of humor that bring light to any room or person he encounters. He has incredible physical abilities including stamina and balance. However, he has very limited verbal skills. He can't tell us what happens during his day, nor can he answer yes and no questions. Most of his language is scripted from television, but is used appropriately to request needs. He has terrible stomach and GI issues. Constipation has been a plague since he was very small. He is still not completely toilet trained. We know how bright our child is. We just need to find the right way to get his brain going in the right direction. We know that the doctors and nurses at True Health are on the right path with Logan. We will not give up on Logan!

We first knew something was wrong when he was 18 months old. He began to regress. He'd learn a new word then stop using it after a few days. He had more speech at 15 months than he did at age 2. We did all the early-intervention programs and he started pre-school at age 3. At age 5 we sought a formal diagnosis and autism was confirmed. We have since followed with 2 neurologists and 2 developmental psychologists. Logan attends an autism program through the district educational coop. For the first time since he was 18 months old, we have begun to see progress. This is largely due to his diet, enzyme support, and lots of therapy from dedicated teachers. Logan has a brother, Luke. Luke is 4 and has recently also received a diagnosis of autism. Luke is not as affected as Logan and his treatment is mainly therapy and diet.

Now that both boys are diagnosed with ASD, we are constantly juggling and fighting for treatment and therapy. We are dividing resources between both boys and left with guilt when we have to choose one treatment or program for one child over treatments for the other. Any kind of loan such as this will lessen our burden and allow us to do more treatments for each of our boys.

Thank you for your time and consideration."

Special Note: Mary learned about Lend4Health from somebody at the Generation Rescue booth at the Autism One conference in Chicago in May 2010.
