I have been trying to find my 16 month old son and my family some type of financial relief. There is relief for people suffering from autism, diabietes (sp), Spinal cord injury, even ADHD! I understand that these are life altering disabilities to but seeing what my son has gone through just makes me so upset that there is not people reaching out to others like him. This is such a devastating disease and literally turned my son into a (hate to say it) Vegetable for the time being (praying he gets better). It just upsets me so much that America has so many programs to support children overseas and it is a great idea to help others like that but you call any of those programs and they refuse to take any child in America. It seems the only country that is even aware of the severity of encephalitis is the UK. I wish I had the money to start a program and help all those suffering and that have suffered encephalitis. There needs to be more awareness of this disease and we need to help these people. Excuse my rant everyone I just feel so bad for all that have to endure this and for those adults that can't work and have no one to turn to. My son has me but who do those have that are grown and had to rely on only themelves before encephalitis changed their life? I pray you all find peace and can conquer this horrible monster we call encephalitis.
