_Update_

An individual has come forward to offer to pay for the tests as this is needed urgently.  Proof of payment for the tests will be sent to Backabuddy and funds raised will help repay the individual.

This child, my child. This beautiful boy, who is perfect in every way, who has the most beautiful smile and a heart of pure gold, struggles through every single day of his life like most of us could not even begin to imagine, and he is only 8 years old.

Caleb has been diagnosed with a syndrome. The actual syndrome we can only confirm once we have had genetic testing done but it is probably one called Fragile X.

Caleb struggles socially, emotionally, behaviourally and cognitively on a daily basis. Due to Caleb's difficulties he was, and still sometimes is, very aggressive. He needs almost constant facilitation. He has had many assessments and possible diagnoses over the last 6 years. We have tried different combinations of medications to assist with his symptoms, but he still struggles, every. single. day. Does he still smile every day? Yes, he does, especially when he sees an ambulance, police car, fire truck or race car.

In order for Caleb to be placed in the correct environment with the correct support, we need to have the genetic test done.  Unfortunately, this, and the neurologist that he has just seen is not covered by his medical aid. I had to borrow money to cover the neurologist's account (R2810), and I need assistance with raising the funds for the genetic testing (R6438) as I am a single mom with two other children to see to (if Caleb tests positive they will need to be tested too).
