I am reaching out to you for the first time in many years for financial support.
Currently, due to greater than usual needs and rising expenses, our Tourette coffers are dangerously low, potentially affecting our August/September programming across the state.
AND … There are critical needs in Texas right now!
Today, a young adult is suffering with extremely severe tics and other symptoms. He is unable to find or sustain work due to his symptoms. He is living with his grandmother and is without health insurance or transportation.
We have no money to help him.
When there is funding… we are able to pay for a first and a follow-up doctor visit to a Tourette expert, as well as transportation to get him there.
Won’t you please help us continue to provide these and other much needed services?
ANY amount, from $5.00 to $5,000.00, will truly make a difference.
Many thanks – and love to all,
Executive Director, TAA-TX
Over 34 years served
