Our son Spencer was born with a brain injury due to lack of oxygen at birth. When I went into labor we lived in a small town in Ohio and the hospital there did not have anyone available to deliver our little guy so he suffered this hypoxic event for over 9 hours damaging areas of his brain. He is nine years old now and we have exhausted all forms of therapy and medication. Because of this medical neglect he struggles everyday with congnitive ability, memory deficits, expressive language and severe emotional behavioral problems. We have learned that Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy can help but is not covered under our insurance and it is very expensive at $130 a session. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) delivers oxygen enriched blood to areas of the brain affected by brain injury. These blood cells activate idling neurons, allowing them to take over the functions of the dead cells. This will allow a Spencer to regain functions have become compromised by the brain injury. We hope to someday provide this therapy for our son because it is not too late for him and with your help he can have a brighter future.
Thank you for any support your are able to give.
