Our First Day At the Center - Donations Desperately Needed

After fasting for 12 hours, Katie arrives at the Center at 7:45 am for a complete evaluation and testing. The appointment and initial evaluation was $500. Tests were then selected to determine Katie's present health condition. Katie was found to be a candidate for the IVC treatments. Additional tests included complete blood tests, urine, minerals, vitamins A,C,D, E, K, the whole range of B vitamins, essential fatty acids, amino acid profiles, tests for viruses, parasites in stool, and enzymes. These tests cost about $2900. Three days of IV ascorbic acid testing to determine the optimum VIT C level for Katie will add about $450. To continue the IVC treatments will probably cost about $500 a week. We don't have insurance to cover this.

Our legal expenses to free Katie from Child Protective Services have exceeded $125,000. The majority of that is unpaid and will have to be paid immediately. This was a battle for parents rights for you and your kids. The battle is being taken back to the Texas Supreme Court. We must make sure this doesn't happen to another child. It takes money to do that. At the same time we have all these medical bills which have to be paid to save Katie's life and are top priority. We don't have the means or income to meet these needs. If you can help a little it would be most appreciated. There is a fund set up for Katie by Compassion Childrens Foundation where donations are tax deductible. Just go to . You may also send donations directly to Katie Wernecke, P.O. Box 132, Agua Dulce, Tx 78330. Thank you for your donations. May God richly bless you.
