My veteran son, Matt “Doc” King, has been accepted at the Harch Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Center in New Orleans, to receive a two month treatment for his Traumatic Brain Injuries from his time in Iraq. He returned home from Iraq with Post Traumatic Stress compounded with conditions caused by his Traumatic Brain Injuries.

He has a passion to stop the 22 veteran suicides that are happening every single day. He is the co-producer of the suicide awareness documentary that is to be released soon. You can see the details on This film was funded by people like you who donated.

Matt has worked feverishly on the film production while going to school full-time this past year. With his PST and TBI condition it has been highly stressful. He feels it is time to step aside and receive this treatment now. We are extremely excited and feel that it will alleviate some of the conditions he struggles with and he can return to school.

Although the treatment portion is fully funded, he has to assume the extra expense of traveling to New Orleans, transportation while there and lodging.  While he is there he still has his "normal" bills at home as well.  Since he has been a full time student he has been receiving living expenses from the VA.  Now that he is on medical leave that has stopped until he starts school again.  He will be starting school again in March hopefully after this treatment. 

If you are able he needs your help to cover these expenses that he can't do by himself at this time.

Thank you so much for ANY amount you can contribute to our son’s treatment. It will all add up and it means a lot.

3. If you go through the FundRazr account

is the link for that fundraising contribution site.

HOWEVER, the FundRazr site does charge a fee.....if you have a PayPal account or are Canadian you can give in the following manner if you like. There is only the small PayPal or bank fee for these... less than the Fundraising site.

Thank you to all that have responded! He still needs more funding if you are able to help him at all. NO amount is too small. Every donation says "I care" and it is so appreciated.

I am collecting for him and will give him a list of all who donate.



UPDATE on Matt's treatment:

Matt just had his appointment in New Orleans for his HBOT treatment. He is scheduled to start the treatment Jan 5, 2015!

We are so excited. He will be documenting the treatment for other veterans. Hopefully they will see and go for the treatment as well.
