Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.

My friends, I would like you to meet Tori. She is a mother of two. Her son is diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder/Sensory Integration Dysfunction (SPD/SFD). They started the GFCF diet last year, and found that is not only helped her son, but their older daughter as well. In fact, the GFCF diet is how I met Tori, as she commented on my recent series at the GFCF Experience concerning the GFCF diet in school.
But this post is not about the GFCF diet, nor Tori's children. It is about what Tori wants to do for those in need.
Tori has started a program called Lendforhealth, which she blogs about here. Parents of special needs children know that biomedical treatments are often recommended by DAN! doctors as a way to improve their child's condition. But visits to DAN! doctors and these treatments are expensive, and are rarely, if ever, covered by insurance. Even for parents with moderate income, the costs may put this option out of reach.
Lendforhealth is looking to help families of special needs children by providing community-based interest-free microloans to cover the costs of doctors visits and biomedical treatments. Tori works with the applicants to verify their references and their need and set up loan repayment terms. She then posts this information at the lendforhealth blog, and asks for lenders to help fund the loan.
And who are the lenders? YOU!!!
Via Paypal links established by Tori, you can help fund a specific loan, in any dollar amount up to the loan amount. Once the community has completely funded a loan, Tori will draw up a contract with the lendees and fund their request. Once the loan is repaid in full (terms of repayment are posted with each request, and you can also track the repayment progress at lendforhealth), the money will be returned to you via Paypal.
All loans issued through lendforhealth are interest-free.
Having lived through DAN! doctor visits and biomedical treatments with Helena, I well understand the costs involved, and the importance and need for this service. Please visit lendforhealth and consider helping a family in need.
Tori, thank you for your inspiration and for providing this much needed service. And friends, thanks for being the angel that may help a child and their family remember how to fly.
