The family and friends of John Bellefleur raising money to help pay for MYOMO - John's best hope of regaining his right arm.

John had surgery for a giant fusiform aneurysm on May 27th, 2011. During the 21 hour surgery, he suffered a stroke resulting in right side paralysis. John's right leg is stronger and he is getting around great and working hard. However his arm is not coming back. MYOMO is the latest device developed by a bunch of MIT grad students to help stroke survivors regain limb functionality. What would you pay for your dominant arm? If there was a way for you to regain a lost limb, but you couldn't afford it, what would you do? What is an arm worth?
