Mirage - Feature Member

Our Feature Member this week is Mirage He is turning 4 on August 31.
His mother is doing this in the hope of raising enough money to buy him an IPad before his birthday. He needs it to help him communicate as his Speech Therapist uses it and finds it effective in their sessions. 

Mirage fondly known as "peanut" has Down Syndrome, and he had Infantile Spasms for 1 year and 9 months until his mother discovered Gluten Intolerance is the source of the spasms so she put him on a GF Diet and that cured him instantly. He has been spasm and seizure free for 1 year and 7 months now.Sadly he regressed due to the IS and the side effects of the antiseizure Meds.

After more than a year of therapies, he is now walking with assistance he just got a slot in speech therapy. That is what's worrying Mirage's mum he cannot stop getting therapies. Mirage's mum is a Sped Teacher it helps, but he still needs to be in school, and she cant enroll him because she is financially tight let alone getting the iPad he needs to communicate.

Please help to get Mirage his iPad by donating as little as $1 and/or sharing his story around
