Name: Julian S.
Age: 6 years old
Location: Nevada, USA
Loan Sought: $500
Loan Needed For: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT); 20 dives.
Repayment Terms: 9 months ($55.56/month)
Other Notes: Julian's mom, Rachel, writes, "Julian always has a smile on his face. He loves music and works hard everyday, he is my sunshine. He was "officially" diagnosed with autism at the age of 4, (although at age 2 we were told of him having autism) and since then we have been pursuing biomedical treatments. He has speech, occupational therapy weekly (during school as well) ABA therapy in home, takes vitamins/supplements daily, and is on a gluten-free,casein-free, soy free, egg & nut free diet.
This summer Julian has been working very hard for his ABA therapists who visit our home. He has made great progress in his language and has learned to write his phone number (with the area code), first and last name, and his address along with other huge milestones he's reached. It's exciting for us to see this. It's a mother's longing to see all of this in our children and celebrate it with him. He is doing great so far.
For the past 2 years we've been wanting to pursue hyperbaric oxygen therapy, but we have done the other therapies first as financially we just couldn't do. I am excited at where Julian is at this time, and HBOT, we believe, would benefit him greatly.
We are a previous Lend4Health family and know that if it hadn't have been for great lenders like you, we probably still wouldn't have been able to get a DAN Dr. and pursue biomedical treatments for Julian.
Thank you in advance for all of your support; it is much appreciated!"
Special Note: This is Julian's 2nd Lend4Health loan request. The first loan was $471 for Julian's first DAN! doctor appointment. That loan was repaid early, and this family is in good standing on Lend4Health. To read the first loan request, click HERE.

October 1, 2010: Update from Rachel: "I just wanted to send you and our great lenders an update. So far Julian has been doing great with hyperbaric therapy (HBOT). We are doing daily treatments and he even asks every morning when he gets out of bed, "Are we going in spaceship mom?" Calling it a "spaceship" has made it fun for him to want to get in, and, since day one, he has had no problem getting in it at all. He has been having spontaneous language and so far we are happy with his progress. We are about halfway thru our treatments. I'm happy to share that Thurs. 30th Sept.
Julian turned 7 yrs. old!! We will be celebrating his bday this weekend along with
family/friends. Thank you again for all those who've supported us along the way! It has meant so much to our family!"
