A Bedford, N.S., family says they’ve sacrificed their home to cover tens of thousands of dollars in medical expenses for their son.

Noah Isenor, now 15 years old, was born premature. He has a number of health issues including spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and visual and speech impairment. He relies on a specially designed accessible van to get him around.
