FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS: Funds are urgently needed to pay for independent medical evaluations of Nancy Pantoni's disabled, special-needs son, Dominic Pantoni. He is extremely sick and is suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, gallbladder disease, thyroid disease, tardive dyskinesia, and worst of all, he is in STAGE 3 OF KIDNEY DISEASE! Nancy fears that if Dom's kidney disease gets any worse, he may end up on dialysis for the rest of his life, or worse! Your donations will help pay for new doctors for Dom. Nancy has exhausted her life savings fighting for Dom over the past five years, and that's why she needs our help. Online donations are being accepted via the YouCaring.com website.
Funds are also needed to pay for the legal fees of newly hired attorney, Matthew Lovewell. Nancy is fighting to have a new legal guardian appointed for her son, Dominic; one who will honor the family's core values. Dom appears to be deteriorating rapidly under the "care" of the current guardian and group home. He's now in Stage 3 Kidney Disease, and living in almost complete isolation caused by the extreme restrictions placed on him in his current living situation. His mother is only permitted to visit him for one hour each month and is not permitted to talk to him on the phone.
Nancy is fearful for Dom's life and desperate to move him to another facility, but can't do anything to help her son until a new guardian is appointed! Your donation in any amount will help Nancy's fight to save Dom. We can't save the whole world, but we CAN help a dear friend. And if you live in Pittsburgh, you'll be helping someone in your own backyard. Every little bit helps. No donation is too small. Together, we can all make a difference in this family's life. Thanks for your support.

RELAED LINKS TO SHARE:
MEDIA ATTENTION: You can also help Nancy in her fight to regain guardianship by contacting anyone you know in the media. We really need to get Nancy's story heard by as many people as possible. If you have a friend who works at one of the local newspapers, magazines, or radio or TV stations, please share this story with them. This situation is tragic and absurd, and I truly believe that public pressure and attention by the media could go a long way in persuading the current guardian to relinquish guardianship and/or persuading Judge Zappala to rule in Nancy's favor at a future hearing. PUBLIC'S SUPPORT can pave the way to a victory for Nancy!
LETTER WRITING: If you have time to write a letter on behalf of this cause, your efforts will be greatly appreciated. Letters can be sent to your local newspaper, local government representatives, state government officials, etc. Sample letters are available for your review on the Letters page of this website. Thank you.
LEGAL HELP: If you personally know anyone who works in the legal profession who might be willing to represent Nancy, or provide her with legal advice, please let her know. Word of mouth can sometimes be the most effective way to find the right person for the job. Thank you.
DOCTOR REFERRALS: If you know of a doctor who is an expert on Deletion 22Q Syndrome, Kidney Disease, Gallbladder Disease, Thyroid Disease or Diabetes, please send us your referrals and suggestions. We are also seeking an Integrative doctor and a Psychiatrist or Psychologist for an independent evaluation of Dom's current physical and mental health. Thank you.
