Fans Across America, an organization dedicated to helping homeless families and students and serious ill or special needs children, has helped one Arizona family.
Kellie Burkhart and her husband discovered their son Andrew had Cerebral Palsy when he was four.
“We knew there were things that weren’t right, but no one could say what it was,” Burkhart told News/Talk 92.3 KTAR’s Mac & Gaydos. “We went the traditional medical route and Andrew was getting worse so we found a doctor who does holistic medicine and some doctors in California and Andrew has improved greatly.”
Burkhart said that insurance doesn’t pay for any of Andrew’s medical care, which is extremely expensive, which is why she turned to Fans of America’s Assist-A-Family program.
“The foundation sends the money directly to one of Andrew’s local doctors to reduce our bill there, which is quite hefty,” she said.
Burkhart and her husband pay about $750 each month for Andrew’s medical care.
“92 percent of what people donate goes directly to Andrew’s doctor. Without the help from people through this organization we would be in a whole lot of hurt.”
