My family is working hard to raise money for the treatment that Korey needs. Please show us your support!

My daughter Korey was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy when she was a little girl. She had a rare heart surgey when she was just 5 weeks old. She is 8 years old now and has not had any heart problems since her surgey. Although she has not had heart problems she faces everday challenges with having CP. Korey is very fortunate that she can walk and get around pretty well. Although she can do this she is not intellectually capable yet of taking care of her self. She needs asistance with eating, dressing, bathing, and she is also not potty trained. Korey also walks with AFO'S (braces on her legs) and she can make sounds but is non-verbal. She can not go to sleep without medication, we have many poopisodes, she has muscle spasticity and tightness, and she is also epileptic but controled with medication. All of these things could potenially have a chance to improve over time with her therapy and medicines but there is a treatment that could potenially help her on a much faster scale. This treatment is called Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment. I have recently come across a non -profit organization in Beckely, WV called the Autism Recovery Center. This center offers Hyperbaric treatment at low cost and is only three hours away from where we live. The hyperbaric treatment is high does of oxygen which helps repair brain cells. Providing any donation that you can to help my family get Korey this treatment is greatly apreciated. Thanks for showing us your support!!
