WE MET OUR 2014 GOAL!!!!!
With the help and support of so many wonderful people, we met our 2014 goal of $6,000 and we are thrilled. We still do have Blessing Not Burden Tee's available, and Nora's grandmother's book 'Waking Up With Nora' is finally published and available also.
Why $6,000? Well, Next Summer (2015) Nora has been invited to participate in a research study at the Center for Cerebral Palsy at University of Columbia Teachers College in New York, NY. This study focuses on Hand Arm Bilateral Intensive Therapy (HABIT), whereby the teachers and researchers focus on encouraging the kids to use their strong and affected hands and arms bilaterally (working together) accomplishing everyday tasks.
While the study is free of charge, lodging in NYC will cost Nora and her mom more than $3,000 for the time they need to be there.
Also, Nora is headed to Children's Hospital in Boston for a neuropsychological evaluation which is not covered by our insurance. The cost for that evaluation is over $3,000. The results of the evaluation are priceless in terms of the information it will offer Nora's therapists, school teachers and specialists.
In addition, it is estimated that on average the family incurs expenses of approximately $500 per month from co-pays, specialists visits, travel, and special equipment that is not covered by insurance. This is all above and beyond typical costs of raising a typical child. Any and all support is amazing and so greatly appreciated.
