Having a child struggle with a debilitating disease is unbelievably difficult, and we’re working to ease the burden on Silas and his family as much as possible.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) October 02, 2015
Turner Insurance Agencies, a locally owned insurance firm with offices that serve the eastern Florida coast, is announcing a charity drive to provide financial support for the family of Silas, a young boy suffering from a very rare and tragic condition known as Mitochondrial Disease.
After his initial diagnosis, Silas was unable to even move his head, but after treatment and medication he is now aware of his surroundings and able to eat on his own. Although research is ongoing, there are very few treatment options for mitochondrial disorders, and these treatments are all prohibitively expensive. Silas is known as a superhero to his family and friends, and despite the odds, he is slowly recovering. His mother, however, is concerned that once the medications run out, her son’s condition will begin to deteriorate.
“Having a child struggle with a debilitating disease is unbelievably difficult, and we’re working to ease the burden on Silas and his family as much as possible,” says Andy Turner, owner and principal of Turner Insurance Agencies. “Our team is working day and night to offer all the assistance we can, and every day there are more families across Florida joining us in supporting Silas.”
Turner and his team are advocating on behalf of Silas and his family as well as gathering funds that will be used to help pay for the medical treatments he requires. Moreover, the Turner team is constructing an online social media presence that they hope will pull in even more supporters from other communities in Florida and beyond.
In addition to launching a charity drive to assist Silas and his family gather funds for medical treatment, Turner Insurance Agencies has assisted a number of other Florida charities over the past year, and has committed to supporting at least one new charity in Florida every two months as part of an ongoing community involvement program.
