Help Grace to pay for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. The pressurized oxygen creates intensely oxygenated blood, healing her brain.

Grace experienced brain damage while under the knife for an oral surgery when she was 9 months old. She has hypootonic cerebral palsy. This condition is characterized by a normal intelligence and understanding of the world, but great difficulty with expression, communication, and physical strength. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps to heal the damaged areas of the brain like no other medical treatment. Unfortunately, it is still considered experimental and therefore is not covered by insurance.

Grace's doctor's didn't think she could walk, and now her favorite thing to do is dance, run, and walk with strength and finesse.

Although she cannot yet speak, we have a strong inner knowing that with a little help from hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), she could infuse the gift of gab that we all take for granted so often with as much joy and finesse as she does her dancing. Please help us to help her discover the fullest experience of her beautiful life.

To rebuild brian tissue through HBOT, 40 sessions is the typical protocol. The $1,284 we are hoping to raise would cover all 40 sessions.
