Meet Grayson

Grayson

When Stephanie and Matt brought their newborn, Grayson, home from the hospital, they knew something wasn’t quite right.

As soon as they heard how much Grayson’s treatment would cost, Stephanie and Matt knew it was out of reach for their family. That’s when they found The Assistance Fund.
