Cristian Joseph Piro was born on March 24th 2009. Up until his 2nd birthday Cristian was a typically developing child. Around 18 months old Cristian started experiencing slight seizures and by the age of 2 he was diagnosed with Epilepsy. Since then his development has been at a standstill. Cristian is now 5 years old. His mother and I have spent the last 3 years trying to figure out what was causing the seizures and how to stop them. He has tried several medications, had countless  blood tests, mri's and eeg's and none of the doctors can find anything physically wrong with him. Aside from the fact that Cristian suffers from seizures and has a developmental disabilty because of the seizures he is a healthy young boy that is full of life. His mother and I recently learned about a new dna test that may be able to pinpoint his condition and why he has the seizures. If we can figure out why the seizures are occuring the likelyhood of getting them to stop increases because the doctors will better be able to serve him in regards to treatment. This new testing is not covered by Cristians insurance and unfortunately his mother and I do not have the money to pay for it. The test cost $5500 to pay out of pocket. If we can somehow raise the money to have this test done we can give Cristian a better shot at being able to control his seizures, reduce the medications that he is taking and give him a shot at a better quality of life. Thank you.
