We. Did. It.
Messa has been Issy’s fairy godmother. In addition to helping Issy they have laid down the very first brick in a path that will get residential treatment for extreme behaviors covered by insurance and Medicaid in the future. There will be many, many (many, many,many,many,many, stoopid amounts of ) bricks on this path; but this is where it starts. Right here.
Yes, they just did that.
Here is their facebook page. Please, I beg you, like their page and tell them thank you for supporting Issy, saving our entire family, and breaking new ground in autism treatment. https://www.facebook.com/MESSAOnline?ref=br_tf
With the help of Messa and donations, we feel confident that Issy’s treatment will be able to continue through to her discharge date of September 2nd, 2013.
We are finished fundraising.
Any additional funds that come in from t-shirt sales or donations will go toward all of the expenses related to Issy’s care that aren’t covered by insurance, Messa, or Community mental health.

Issy is doing so well in therapy. Everyone at the facility is working hard to help her. She has prayers, letters, and good energy coming from all over the world. She will be a success story for the facility (and the first to go through fully funded), for us, and all the families who are trying to get treatment at Great Lakes or in similar placements.
In fact, Issy’s treatment is going so well we were able to move her release date up two months, from November 1 to September 2 (In time to start school on the 3rd!).
We are working on thank you notes but please understand if we’ve missed you. So many donations have come from many different places. Looking back, I should have set up a spreadsheet. But I seriously had no idea so many people would want to help us. We are so very fortunate.
Thank you everyone. At this moment, I have so much happiness and hope. Please stay tuned because I plan to continue blogging about her progress (I just had my FIRST training session to transition home. Wow…wait until you hear about that!).
Thank you for reading,praying,donating,loving,hoping,and wishing! There is a lexical gap for a word to describe the amount of gratitude we feel.
