Sammy's Potential

We would like to introduce you to our beloved son,  Sammy.   Sam has the very best giggle in the entire world.  He loves his doggy, and loves curry sweet potatoes for dinner.  He also has cerebral palsy.
Sammy was not breathing at birth.  There was significant brain damage.  He was in the hospital for three weeks.  The doctors in the hospital did not believe Samuel would be anything more than what he was as a newborn.  No movement, very low functioning.  He was also diagnosed with Epilepsy.  I was not able to hold him until day five, which was torturous in it self.  When I finally did get to hold him for the first time, I promised him that I would do anything I could to improve his life; that I was not giving up on him.
We sought out alternative therapies, knowing our son was more than they could see.  Although Sammy has responded well to these therapies, I feel I need to keep my promise to my son and do ALL that I can to help him heal and lead the most fulfilling life he can.
There is very compelling evidence, as well as parent testimonies, that Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can produce truly profound healing.  At 22 months, Sammy is not yet crawling or walking.  We are hopeful that HBOT could help him on his path to achieving those milestones.  You can read more about HBOT here:

As a parent it is heartbreaking when you know there is a treatment, like hyperbaric chamber therapy, that can actually help your child heal from injury, and the only thing between you and a miracle is money.  If you can help at all, to make this therapy available to Sammy, well, that would be a miracle in itself.  Thank you for letting me share with you a little about our beautiful son!
Sincerely, The Enos Family.

Hello Everyone! We have some amazing news we wanted to share. We felt this would be a good platform since you all helped to contribute to our wonderful little Sammy. A few weeks back Sammy went in for an EEG test to measure for seizure activity. He had a horrific seizure at 13 months. We got the test results back and they were clear. Completely free of seizure activity! This is a huge shift for this little guy . We just saw his neurologist and he even admitted he was surprised by the result. To our great surprise and relief , he said we now can ween Sam off the phenobarbital! Just amazing! I am so beyond proud of this little guy. He continues to surprise us all. We have sought out therapies that will assist Sammy in reaching milestones but that also heal on a deep level. I feel like that is what we are starting to see in his test results and in just the beautiful little boy in front of us. We are so lucky and thankful for all your love and support!

Hi Everyone!

We wanted to share a video of Sam crawling at his oxygen therapy session this morning. We are continuing his hyperbaric oxygen therapy because of your donations and we were so delighted to see the progress Sam has made. It was such a wonderful site to see, we had to share it!!

When Sam started coming to his therapy he could not crawl. Today, we could not stop him from hopping around! Thank you to all the people who work with Sammy at his therapies and all who have donated and allowed us to see this happen and witness this miracle. I hope you all enjoy watching Sam hop around as much as we do! - Love, Anna and Joey

On Friday we finished our first round of HBOT. I feel so confident now that this is the right course for Sammy. It has already made a profound difference in his life and ours. In just a few weeks we have seen so much change in our little guy! He has been babbling and talking more. He sleeps more soundly and for longer stretches. He moves more, and experiments more with his movements. It has helped him with all his other therapies as well, helping him to integrate change quicker than ever before. The difference is remarkable and hard to put into words. We look forward to continuing with treatments after the holidays. We still need to reach our goal to complete his second round of treatment. So please spread the word and help us to help our beautiful, strong , boy. Thank you!
