I have organised this to help Aaron and his family, any contribution you can spare would most appreciated - Nicole :)

Nothing brings a family to it’s knees like a sick kid. We would dearly like your help to give young Aaron a chance at a normal life.

Up until about March 2012 we were travelling along as a normal family, our son Aaron was 14,  doing well at school work – a healthy, active teenage boy playing soccer and basketball with friends and school teams.

Then something changed, Aaron began to experience severe allergies. We took Aaron to doctors, but none of the medication or dietary changes seemed to help much at all. Then Aaron caught a flu which ended up getting so bad that it almost became pneumonia. The doctors put him on antibiotics which seemed to kill the infection and reduce the tightness on his chest, but after approximately 2 weeks the severity of the virus returned and he was put onto more antibiotics (which we normally would not need to use).

At this time Aaron’s health took a nosedive. He was experiencing nausea and pain and unable to eat properly. Aaron felt his stomach beating as a heart and the next medical merry-go-round began. Though his stomach began to get better, Aaron became weak and sore all over. After many doctors and numerous tests nobody was able to give us a diagnosis. We tried healthy foods, supplements, pushing past the pain, hospital tests, chiropractors and still Aaron is not getting any better, in fact he is getting worse, the pain so constant and severe is barely able to leave the house.

It’s been more than two years since Aaron has been able to attend regular school, the pain is too severe. Aaron’s mother Julie has had to leave the workforce to care full-time for Aaron. With the doctors unable to provide any answers or a clear diagnosis, our family is struggling to make ends meet and with no clear diagnosis we are not eligible for government support.  

After spending 18 months of testing, caring, searching options and battling beureaucracy we had made little headway and had become tired, frustrated and desperate for answers.

We have found a private clinic that is able to help with difficult cases, such as Aaron. With our financial resources exhausted over the last two years, we are reaching out to ask our community for help. We desperately want for Aaron to get well so he can live into the possibility of the young man he was on the way to becoming before he was struck down from this illness.

We are so grateful to the support we have had over the last two years from friends, family and our community. If you can spare even a small amount, to help us fund Aaron’s return to health, we would be eternally grateful.

With love and gratitude,

Julie and Bernd Hahnert
