Name: Joshua Z.
Age: 5 years old
Location: South Carolina, USA
Loan Sought: $450
Loan Needed For: TRIAD Profile test (blood & urine) for metabolic and nutritional needs
Repayment Terms: 12 months ($37.50/month)
Other Notes: Joshua's mom, Jackie, writes, "Joshua was diagnosed with autism at my urging. We knew something was not typical and refused to believe that he was just a 'Late Talker;' there were many other signs as well. Luckily with persistence and therapy, he is a high-functioning little guy with autism. We started Joshua on a regiment of Cod Liver Oil, chelation baths, and B12 Patches. We have seen much improvement in his abilities to focus, as well as a decrease in his anxiety!!
My husband is self employed as a contractor, and, lately, as with most people these days, we are struggling to make ends meet.
We are requesting a loan for the TRIAD test, which is from blood and urine, to get more information on Joshua's body's needs. The test covers: Vitamin and mineral sufficiency; Insufficiencies of carnitine and NAC; Oxidative stress and antioxidant sufficiency; Detoxification adequacy; Functional status of B-vitamins; Neurotransmitter metabolism; Mitochondrial energy production; Methylation sufficiency status; Lipoic acid and CoQ10 sufficiency; Specific markers of bacterial and yeast dysbiosis; Essential amino acids sufficiency; Food sensitivities; and Intestinal hyperpermeability."

December 28, 2010: Thank you from Jackie: "To just say 'Thank You' seems so trivial. What you did for our family . . . for our Joshua, is beyond words! The way you all came together and gave from your hearts truly touched us. The support you showed will undoubtedly go a long way in assisting Joshua manage his autism. Within a few short months, we have seen significant progress in Joshua as he goes through the Brain Balance program in Greenville. Autism affects many families, and being given the chance to help our son is a godsend. So, THANK YOU, from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity! All Our Love . . . Brian, Jackie, Joshua and Zachary"
