All About the Foundation
This Foundation is in Memory of our Son. It was started for Noah's Legacy to live on and by hopefully sharing his story It would help us to help others to raise awareness for medically fragile chronically ill children and to help raise a voice for our children.
Even in Death we fight for Justice .......
Noah had no REAL diagnosis and for years it caused the insurance companies to NEVER cover medical necessities for anything we truly needed for him. Because this went on for years, we were always being called "neglectful parents" because we were not able to afford the right equipment for Noah. He also NEVER got the proper care from hospitals and no matter how much we spoke up for him and fought for him being his voice, NO ONE would listen and in the end Noah died because of medical neglect!
How It all Began "Noah's Story":
Noah was born to early do to neglect of the Doctor being 2 months off my due date. He tried inducing me. It took SEVERAL hours and by using a hook to break my water he hit Noah in the head three times which caused a rare cerebral palsy (not diagnosed until death). All His life Doctors gave him "garbage term" diagnoses' like failure to thrive as well as developmental delay with A LOT More GARBAGE TERMS. Shortly after being released after a month in the NICU ,for the first month of his life, he soon was diagnosed with strep B as well as menangiteous along with fighting RSV. Soon after he formed SVT (which is a heart condition)....Along with respiratory airway disease needing oxygen 24/7, G.I. problems like not being able to gain weight,G-tube that failed then needing Jtube which caused Puncture in his bowel & then caused him to have an iliostomy to eventually leading him to have only tpn/lipid lines in veins for complete nutrition then eventually causing him to have a permanent line placed near heart called asagose vein which was successful and lasted for 2 months until it snapped and broke on fathers day 2009. He needed another major surgery which his surgeon could not perform do to hospital issues and Noah got inexperienced doctors causing them to screw up doing another major surgery. Later they cut his heart medication (which he was on for a very long time). They did this with no explanation and sent him home shortly there after on July 16, 2009 and Noah died the morning of July 18, 2009 of Complete heart failure.
In a nut shell, Noah had a VERY fragile immune system & Unfortunately without the right diagnosis he NEVER received the correct medical care he was entitled too & we could not get the Right medical equipment and treatment to help Noah with his everyday fight for quality of life. Then Noah Suffered all those Unfortunate chain of events between May - July 18, 2009 & eventually caused him to die in the end!
A voice for our children...
Today thousands of families are suffering from the same problems that Noah and our family faced . When it was happening unfortunately we did not have enough information and someone to help us at the time for Noah with Advocacy & in the end it made it a little too late.
The foundation helps with Knowing the laws of your state for health care and home health care services such as hospices and nursing available to visit daily at your home & to help you advocate for your children to give them a voice. We also want to try to help with paying for the everyday needs it takes to keep your child at home between Visits back and Forth to the hospitals and days away sometimes weeks from your family we want to try help with burden of travel expenses , help with lodging and gas cards etc... It is hard to Keep a family unit together and ESPECIALLY around the holidays it is a Trying time for the other children as well as the sick child and the parents being torn from living weeks at the hospital and then back with your other children that need you, you JUST WANT THEM ALL TOGETHER!
Other things we would like to help with are to help pay (or find used) medical equipment needed for your child that he/she is entitled to.
There is really No LIMIT to what The Foundation can help with.
We will address each Child and Family needs each family and child all have individual needs as well as circumstances, Each will be addressed and No one will be turned away.
It is so Mentally and physically draining in knowing all the laws and just exactly what is available for your child, especially depending what state you live in. Our organization helps with knowing how to WORK the system and not having the System WORK YOU! We will help with A lot of different resources from funding, nursing and so on. It is about helping the entire Family it takes so much on all of them. You have to consider the other children's needs as well as the parents needs.I want them to know They ARE NOT ALONE, I too went through this Terrible nightmare with my Son , Watched what it did to My daughter and Never want anyone to go through what we did, What Our Family Did. It is So helpful and such a Burden is lifted when you know you have someone wanting and Trying to Help The ENTIRE Family as well as your Chronically ill child.
In Addition to the Above ways I can help I will also help any family needing some help with laying their child to rest. Recently I came across many moms and Dads ( I know I was one) who needed help to lay their child to rest. If we have the funding We Will Help In ANY WAY WE CAN. They are NOT alone and we will help them with phone calls some funding and other sources out there that can help.
**NOTE** Please know we are a very small organization, I started this shortly after Noah Passed away in 2009 and today I have helped some as much as I can.
