Gibson just got tubes in his ears to help prevent the frequent ear infections he has been experiencing. Being immune suppressed to keep his donated liver happy makes him more susceptible to any illness. The estimated cost for this after insurance is $1400. Anything will help.
Again, all donations are tax deductible.

Gibson had a scare this summer when his Drs feared his swollen lymph node was possibly a post transplant cancer than liver transplant recipients can get. The biopsy came back as normal lymph node tissue.
He has been diagnosed with alopecia and has lost his hair for a second time. It's hard with the looks he gets because people think he has cancer. He pulls his brothers hair and then tries to pull is own, so we know he "misses" his hair.
Since his transplant in 2013 he has been delayed in reaching his milestones. We have been working with early intervention since September 2014 and have recently added private speech therapy. He has improved leaps and bounds with is amazing private therapy sessions. He's gone from saying hi, dada, momma to repeating most words we ask him to say. It's still a work in progress and with weekly appointments it cost a lot. It's worth it since it is helping so much more than the free services with the county/city.
