THE SKELETON CREW FUND

 

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!  I am raising funds towards getting a body suit which I affectionately call a "Batman suit".

Batman Suit - These are the suit pieces i need to help me breathe better.6+ years ago (2012) I was involved in a bad hit and run accident that damaged 10 bones in my spine.  Last year a pastor took me to a center where they sell custom girdles, spine supporters etc for patients suffering from spine issues.  

Hear my story as told by Loren Cunningham, Founder and President of one of the largest Christian organizations in the world, YWAM: Youth With A Mission.  In the video, Mr Cunningham tells my background story and what happened to me, and also endorses my projects.  He made this special video to help me with the fundraisers.
As per the Body Suit, they cost around $1K. However due to sweat etc a suit can only be used a few hours. If my skin comes in contact with a suit that rubs against my skin, it tears my skin. I sadly have baby soft skin and tear easily. I will end up with something similar to bed sores patients get on hospital beds when not moved around. The smell of dead skin peeling off onto the wraps can be pretty awful so they need to be changed regularly. Blistering is a real pain (no pun intended) and I get badly blistered. So at the least I need 2 - preferably 3 bodysuits. I call them Batman suits coz they are black in color.

The suits are custom-fitted to a patient's body, and adjusted ever so often at the center, just like how a dentist custom fits braces to a person's mouth. Right now I hurt so bad when I sneeze or cough and have gone into shock. On 2 occasions I choked and the coughing was so intense I ended up on the floor for some time in severe pain. The "Batman suit" sure supports my spine. I damaged 10 bones in my spine in a hit and run car accident.

I am a walking miracle. The docs were shocked when they saw me walking despite the damage. But the pain and imbalance cause me to fall. A few days ago I was trying to photograph the plants, and I fell over backwards smashing 5 flower pots which had beautiful plants. Sadly the planted were damaged by my fall.

Once again I want to thank you for loving me and trying to help me out.

For the fun of it I will be issuing a Boneafide Humerus Skeleton Crew Certificate for each person who donates. This cert says: _________________ has been awarded this Certificate of Appreciation for generously donating towards the Skeletal & Muscular Health & Wellness of a fellow human being on ___________ (date).

 

Thanks for helping me out.

 

May God bless you richly.

If you want to also contribute beyond the needed $3000, I would like to get into filmmaking and need camera equipment.  I will need $5,000-10,000 total for 2-3 cameras (inc accessories: Harddrive, lenses, mounts).
