My precious 4-year old granddaughter, Avonlea, was born with a very rare genetic disorder called Trisomy 13. She does not yet walk or talk. She is both physically & developmentally delayed, has hearing loss, & experiences seizures. Some are so extreme they can cause her to stop breathing & rescue breaths must be administered. Despite these serious issues, Avonlea is a sweet, happy girl who is very much loved & valued by all who know her. As she has grown older, her life-saving equipment has grown as well, & no longer fit into her parent’s small car. When All Things Possible heard about her situation they entered like the cavalry! Within just a few months they had raised enough funds to present Avonlea & her parents with a wheelchair compatible minivan large enough to house Avonlea, her little sister, & all of her necessary equipment!
We found ATP to be very kind, loving, well organized, efficient, & well-connected to beneficial resources that helped them reach their goal. The staff, volunteers, & our amazing community all worked together to bless our family in this way! Raising a child with severe special needs is difficult & exhausting most days, but seeing the pure joy on the faces of my daughter, son-in-law, & Avonlea shows what an amazing gift this was to them. Our family is forever grateful to All Things Possible Medical Fundraising for being the hands & feet of Jesus to love on our family with such a generous gift.
All Things Possible! The words speak clearly of who they are. This mon profit organization helped my son Tanner Adkins with a conversion van to get out in the community more. My son has a power wheel chair he calls his car but o had to way of getting him out on the community without All Things Possible'! Tanner loves his chair and his VAN! He is over half my weight and still growing. He has Cebral Palsy, he has only 1/3 of a brain and a shunt placement to drain his extra fluid. He has a extra chromosome and many more dignoises. I was told my son would never walk, talk, nor live past two years old. I had a feeding tube placed in his stomach so he could get his nutrition for he couldn't eat . The feeding tube helped bring his voice out. He has physical therapy , occupational therapy and speech to help him. His brother and I have become to understand his words which is complicated to others who aren't with him much. He has sezuires but are controlled with medication but believe me we have to stay on alert because the least stringers them to happen. I thought all I needed was a van to get him in the community and to all his doctors appointments and therapy. All Things Possible got Tanner his dream! A high help fir not just him but his brother and me. They are a non profit organization that just didn't help with Tanners help to get out in his van but they Prayed fir more Blessings in our lives. They kept in touch! We were invited to a Exalt singing that helps raise money to keep the organization moving. There was another hugh life changing for us. I and my oldest son both asked Hid into our hearts. I always thought I was alone doing my best with two children. I did do well but that moment God entered my heart my life was filled with so many Blessings. I realized before that moment my life was falling apart. I Thank Our Saviour everyday for being by our side, giving us the strength to get Thur our lives. I have become a stronger mom. I have a new family, my All Things Possible Ministry family and my church at HillCrest Baptist in york. If you ever loose Hope, Faith, need help with anything to help I give you courage to reach out to All Things Possible. My children just love Mrs. Lisa Sexton. All it took was me to apply on line to her what my son needed and they reached out to us. I was very Blessed and still feel Blessed to have met thus group that does what God wants them to do. As my disabled son Tanner would say honestly is All Things Possible . Org!!!!' My family could never Thank them enough! We love All Things Possible! The group is so supporting! I could go on with so much more hiw my son was Blessed but it would take all your time. We love you all at All Things Possible! God Bless You as you have US in so many great ways! I have to add since the conversion van moms gained ten pounds which needs more and my backs nit breaking. We are very Blessed fir so many reasons to have this conversion Van fir Tanner and his power wheel chair he calls his car. He will tell you that's HIS van too!!! AMEN!
Two year old Ryley was born with a rare genetic disorder. His #1 Chromosome is missing 75% of the genes it should contain. He also has severe scoliosis of the spine and is wearing a body cast. He cannot talk, stand, walk, sit or crawl. Due to a malformed pallet and digestive disorders, he is fed through a feeding tube directly into his stomach. While he is 2 years old, developmentally he is only 7 months old. His stomach is unusually small so he is fed every few hours, yet only weighs 17 pounds. Ryley is being raised by his grandparents, who have had full custody of him since he was removed from his parents at 7 months old. Ryley's grandparents are now alternating 12 hour shifts due to Ryley's feeding schedule. A potentially life-threatening brain surgery is on the horizon for Ryley because his brain has shifted to one side. Surgery may be avoided if he gets a cranial band helmet. The other piece of equipment needed is a P-Pod chair that will result in better digestion during Ryley's tube feeding and increased spinal support. Unfortunately, Medicaid won't pay for any of that.
This is where a local nonprofit charity called All Things Possible Ministries steps in to help.
In addition to coordinating and promoting public fundraising events in the local community, All Things Possible Ministries reaches out to the medical billing departments and sources for medical equipment in an attempt to negotiate the monies due. Both share a common goal ' to eliminate outstanding bills owed by patients to their medical providers. The medical billing departments want to be paid, and the burden of those payments need to be removed from the patient so they can concentrate on getting better.
Medical bills are paid directly from All Things Possible Ministries to the medical provider or insurance company. Any funds received over and above the goal amount (payment of outstanding medical or equipment costs) are retained by All Things Possible Ministries in a separate medical benevolance account and used as a 'Pay it Forward' to help future families in crisis.
I'm proud to be a volunteer and supporter of this organization that really does make a tangible difference in the Charlotte metro community.
