The Toots Farrell Foundation announces its fundraising campaign to award five NeuroSpect Scans to families. This cutting edge NIDS treatment incorporates specialized brain scans, specific bloodwork, and targeting safe medications to treat this complex viral autoimmune disease they label as ‘autism’. Children with this mistaken label of “Autism” and others with related disorders can be treated medically. Children with NIDS, and their parents, do have hope for a much brighter future.
The Foundation’s Mottos:
Pax Vobiscum; Peace Be With You (In Latin).
To Give Is To HeAL
Established as official NFP-2011
Grants Awarded thus far-14
Official News Release:
The Toots Farrell Foundation (AKA http://www.notautism.org) is the only official IRS grassroots NFP that awards all of its profits to help families offset the enormous costs of treating and recovering these children. ‘Autism’ is not something that can be ‘outgrown’, but children do recover from it. Hundreds of thousands of out of pocket medical care, therapy, educational advocacy and lawyers, and programs are necessary to help these children and families. Each year alone, families (with insurance) are forced to spend anywhere from 30K-90K a year out of pocket to cover the cost of ‘Autism’.
The Toots Farrell Foundation needs funding so that children nationwide can get the medical attention they need by the medical professionals who believe and treat this epidemic. Kersten Rojas, the founder and President of the foundation states ‘The most important piece of this puzzle is the NeuroSpect scan which tells the doctor which areas of the brain are affected and thus drives the medication and therapy.’ The goal is to provide 5 NeuroSpect scans to five families this year (hence $2444.00 goal).
The Impact to Society and why those not ‘affected’ should be aware:
In a classroom of 30:
3 have a learning disability
3 have food allergies
3 have respiratory allergies
3 have skin allergies
3 have asthma
3 have attention disorders
1 has bipolar disorder
1 has autism
