      Hi tstraight,

      I'm so sorry to hear that your son has to go through this. I've reached out via our social media channels to see if we can quickly find someone who knows what you are going through, and can provide perspectives that can help.

      In the meantime, please let us and the WhatNext network know what we can do to help and support you. We will support you in any way we can!

      Karen
