PIX 11 picks up another Save 1 Alert, after the intial support and a new diagnosis, the father needs an angel to get his child the treatment she so desperately needs to walk and talk.
This is a Save 1 Alert. Maya Rose Dwek can not walk and talk. Maya was genetically tested, and has an extremely rare abnormality: MR-Autosomal Dominant-19. The only known treatment for Maya Rose, that provides any hope of a life where this little angel can walk and talk is a procedure called Deep Brain Stimulation, identical to that generally accepted practice for the treatment of people with Parkinsons. The father’s insurance carrier refuses to cover the procedure. The father simply can not afford this expense on his own. Can you help with this cost? Offer suggestions how to get Alex’s insurance to pay for this procedure and do the right thing, or send information on the best hospitals that do this procedure? Can you help this single father give his daughter, the gift of a normal life?
