some suggestions
Christine Brown (brown4@dewittec.net)
Hi, I understand completely. My husband is the sole provider in our home, and budgeting is always an issue. We take my daughter for her neurologist, orthopedic and orthotist to Dallas Scottish Rites. It is a free hospital, we do not pay for a thing. Check out if there is a Scottish Rites or Shriners hospital near you and find a group to sponsor you child's application. We also receive all of our therapy services free through the state as long as my daughter is enrolled in public school(We live in Texas). Anyway we travel to Dallas about 3 times a year for appointments and checkups. It is a 5 hr drive for us, but it is worth it every time, because it is free. I hope this helps in some way. Feel free to email me if I can be of further help.
