The weekend before her third birthday, Mia Fowler didn’t have a birthday cake or a birthday party, but she did travel to Tampa, Fla.
There, at Care Clinics, Mia receives treatments for autism.
Mia and her parents, Jacob and Andrea Fowler make the 15-hour drive to Tampa two weekends a month.
The alternative treatments, not covered by health insurance, cost the couple $300 each day Mia is at the clinic, or $1,800 a month, not including traveling expenses.
The trips may continue for a year.
