Friends of James Anton are uniting to raise money to help him get treated in is fight against RSD. Please show your support!

James has RSD, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, is a chronic neurological syndrome characterized by:
severe burning pain
pathological changes in bone and skin
excessive sweating
tissue swelling
extreme sensitivity to touch

He has gone through many procedures without success. He many never live a painfree life but he does have hope at being able to function a normal lifestyle with a treatment that can only be done in Germany or Mexico. The treatment is known as a ketamine coma. With the ketamine-coma treatment, the doctors infuse very high doses of ketamine, an anesthetic, to induce a coma. They have found that many RSD patients awaken with no RSD pain. This treatment is not covered by insurance or yet performed in the US. The cost is approximately $30000 for treatment and expenses.

James cannot bear to wear shoes at this point, he cannot stand the pain of even something as light as a feather to touch his feet. He described to me the other day that a thunderstorm we had felt like an earthquake to him. The pain is sometimes so unbearable its hard for him to even want to go on with his life. Please join us in supporting Jame's fight to live a normal life again.
