Hi everyone, I've posted this in one of the other threads but noticed a bit more user activity on this one. If anyone's able to help me it would be greatly appreciated!

I'm not too sure how this forum stuff works however and asking for anyone's help in making my 9 year old son's day with some MREs.

A little background, he's been battling stage 3 Hodgkins Lymphoma for roughly the past 2 and a half years. During one of the hospital visits a soldier brought visited him and told him about what he had to endure overseas and the type of food he are. My son was strangely hooked on the food idea when he heard it all came in sealed bags. Made it sound like astronaut food hahah.

After that soldiers visit, he kindly sent my son two MREs and my son has been loving them ever since. I'm keeping the balanced diet before people judge he doesn't eat the whole thing just a bite or two of each thing in the meals.
I've been purchasing them on eBay and Amazon ever since. I buy between two to three every week and am struggling to afford them so often but they put a smile on his face that is rare for me to see during these times.

He uses them as a learning experience to what the military had to live off of while overseas and has turned it into a bit of a hobby.

I'm not sure how these forums will be able to help me or I understand if this type of message gets deleted, but if anyone has any extra MREs or foreign rations for my son (he's never had ones from outta the country and is very intrigued by them online), or knows where I can get a few for a good price as I'm struggling with the medical bills, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you from both of us !
