I never went public with a story like the one you are about to read, but a seven year old boy, Robert, and his family, need help. And not just my help, but all the help we could all offer.

Robert was born with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and has been diagnosed with the third level of this syndrome when he was one year and a half.
