BENEFIT FOR NATHAN PITTORF
A benefit will be held on May 5th 2013 at the Maguire Hall (St. Agatha’s) at 51 Alamo Place (off Abbott rd) in S. Buffalo, NY from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Nathan has been suffering with a feeding disorder, which has not been diagnosed since 9 months old. Nathan has been in and out of Children’s hospital since this problem began, he is now turned 7 years old in March 2013. Nathan is currently under care from his GI specialist, and is currently on several different medications. Over the past 6 years, Nathan has been seen by many different doctors to try and diagnose him. He has been seen by neurology, genetics, behavioral, hematology and many pediatric appointments. He also receives Occupational and Speech Therapy. And because of this, Nathan is very delayed physically and academically. He is only 38 pounds as he now 7. After Nathan’s last hospitalization, his GI specialist stated there is limited amount we can do for him in the Buffalo, NY area. Recommendation has been made to take him to Kennedy Krieger feeding clinic in Baltimore MD. At Kennedy Krieger, they have an inpatient-feeding program with specialist. We are hoping there Nathan will be diagnosed with whatever is causing this serious problem for him. With rising medical cost and Nathan having 3 other siblings in the Pittorf home, it is necessary to hold a benefit. Our family was hoping at this point, as Nathan got a little older, he would have advanced, but this is not the case. Nathan and his family have been residence of Buffalo NY for their entire lives. The event includes: Food, Beverages, and music by the J C Thompson Band. There will also be a Chinese Auction, 50/50 raffles and a Door Prize. Ticket donation is 25.00 for this event. To preorder tickets, call Carol Pittorf 716-823-5690, Mike Pittorf 716-605-4179 or Maria Pittorf 716-578-7074. Also, any monetary donation can be made at any M&T Bank by using “Nathans Buddies”. Thank you, & hope to see you May 5th. The Pittorf family.
