Last fall, the couple’s 14-year-old daughter developed a cough that wouldn’t stop.
Her parents have taken her to six doctors and three specialists. She has undergone test after test.
“Cough drops don’t work. Cough syrup doesn’t work,” her mother said. “Her medical bills keep adding up. She’s had a CT scan, thyroid test, sonogram of the gallbladder. It all keeps adding up and we are not getting ahead. We wish we knew what it was so we could deal with it.”
The girl has dizzy spells that cause vomiting and difficulty walking. She has missed 13 days of school and her grades and spirits are dropping.
The couple have three other children and are struggling to pay the bills.
“We pay $150 every month to the clinic ... but we can’t keep up,” the couple wrote on their Share the Season application.
Any help “would help get us back on track so we could deal with the coming bills for her treatments and therapy.
