The Story

JUSTICE 4 DOM:  NANCY PANTONI IS FIGHTING TO SAVE HER SON'S LIFE! Help is urgently needed for medical and legal fees to help Nancy's adult son, Dominic Pantoni. Nancy is seeking independent medical evaluations for her very sick son and has hired a new attorney in an effort to become her son's legal guardian. Nancy has already spent her life's savings trying to help her son, and now she need's the public's help. This is her story.

Nancy Pantoni's son, Dominic Pantoni, was born with a rare genetic disorder called DELETION 22Q SYNDROME, which requires specialized care. He currently resides in a group home. Nancy, who is a practicing nurse, believes he is being over-medicated and maltreated. Since entering the group home five years ago, Dom has gained 80 pounds, and his health has deteriorated dramatically. He has developed diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, gallbladder disease, thyroid disease, tardive dyskinesia, and is in STAGE 3 OF KIDNEY DISEASE! 

In 2009, Nancy Pantoni and Dom's father reluctantly agreed to allow the state to appoint a legal guardian for their then 22-year-old son, Dom, in order for him to get the specialized care he needed to treat his rare genetic disorder. Prior to the hearing, Nancy had asked about temporary guardianship, but was told that was not an option; that only a permanent guardian could be appointed. 

Nancy and Dom's father were told they would have unlimited visitation with Dom, input in his medical care, and be kept up-to-date on his health status. All of these promises were broken, and Nancy was actually BANNED from visiting her OWN SON for NINE MONTHS! She is not even told when he is hospitalized. Fortunately, a judge restored her visitation last summer, but even now she only gets to see him for one hour a month.

In the past six years under the "care" of that guardian and group home, Dom's health appears to have taken a dramatic turn for the worse, and Nancy now fears for his life. As mentioned previously, Dom has gained 80 pounds and developed a wide array of brand new illnesses, none of which existed prior to his being placed in the group home. Imagine how you would feel if under someone else's care YOUR CHILD developed diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, gallbladder disease, thyroid disease, tardive dyskinesia, and STAGE 3 KIDNEY DISEASE! Nancy is afraid that if Dom's kidneys get any worse he may end up on dialysis for the rest of his life (or worse!), and he's only 27 years old!

Please help Nancy Pantoni seek JUSTICE FOR DOM! Your donation will be greatly appreciated. No amount is too small. We can't save the whole world, but we CAN HELP someone in our own backyard. Together we can all make a difference. Thank you in advance for your compassion and help.

Sincerely,

Deena Alansky, Pittsburgh, PA.
