    That is a sad story.
    Instead of having $100's of thousands in medical bills; if you act fast, then you should be able to get your child enrolled in health insurance.
    There are no pre-existing conditions, and that way instead of having to help with hundreds of thousands, the community could help with the premiums of the insurance.
    Medicaid and CHIP should also be available right now if the child is under 19 years old.

    I can't imagine. I hope I can be the rock this mother is to her son for my own family in trial and need. My prayers to this boy and their family. I hope these fundraiser provide what this family needs and more.

    As a parent that had a son who went through cancer treatment for 7 months I can relate to this family. God be with your wonderful son & your family.
