Can you imagine being terrified to go to sleep at night, because you know that before morning you'll have one or more debilitating seizures that will convulse every muscle in your body, leaving you helpless in bed?

There's a young man who goes through this, he needs our help and deserves a chance at a healthy life. Read on for Joey's story, and find out how you can be a part of changing his life and future!

Joey Turner is a warm, wonderful and affectionate young man whom many of you know. He's the youngest brother of Renee, one of my best friends, so naturally he loves to sing (see the video)!

Joey was born with lesions in his brain, and has endured thousands of seizures. Three brain surgeries—two at the famous Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore— were unable to correct the defect. His family (they are amazing!) has tried traditional and experimental anti-seizure medications, radical diets, herbal alternatives, even acupuncture ... all with either short-term results or—in too many cases—very negative side effects. Joey has been hospitalized dozens of times, often in Intensive Care.

On top of that, Joey suffers from Autism. His very limited learning capability assures that he will be unable to achieve any "quality of life" on his own, and will always be totally dependent on others. He deserves better, and perhaps, with your help, there is a way.

I recently heard about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and how it can dramatically improve brain function to help with Autism, and reduce, even eliminate epileptic seizures (you can read all about it HERE). I thought, "This could change Joey's life!"

Joey would need treatments at a local center, costing approximately $5400, which would not be covered by his insurance.

Joey's family did not know that I started a fundraising effort through social media. I just feel that Joey, whom I love like a brother, should get this chance. I hope you feel the same.

Please consider helping him out by clicking "Contribute." You can do so anonymously, if you prefer. I'd also appreciate your SHARING to spread the word. Click follow to get Joey's updates, and please keep Joey and his family in your prayers. Thank you so much!
