Bring Eric Back
I'm one of Erics friends, and family friend. Eric was a colleague and supervisor of mine for several years.
Eric Pomponi (tall bald guy) is my friend and brother in need. Back in January he went into cardiac arrest. He is diagnosed with an "Anoxic Brain Injury" which is lack of oxygen to the brain. It has left him with the mobility and brain function of a new born. He cannot talk, cannot feed himself, cannot walk, or bend or crawl. He cannot text cannot read, or tie his shoes. He is awake, he knows you're there. He will look in your eyes, you can see him, trapped inside begging to get out. Grumbles and groans is all you will hear from the brilliant man inside.
Eric is a Live Support Supervisor (LSS) in the commercial diving, offshore industry. Eric mixes oxygen and helium to create the breathing media for saturation divers thus keeping them alive under great pressures.
The money raised will be used to purchase a USA made, wheelchair accessible, Hyperbaric Chamber from Freethechamber.com (Summit to Sea). The bathroom has to be remodeled for a wheelchair accessible shower.
The sooner we get the chamber ($16995) the sooner we can start. If Everyone or anyone can spare just $5.00 I know our goal will be met.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT) - The medical use of oxygen at an ambient pressure higher than atmospheric pressure. Basically compressing while breathing 93-100% O2 to flood the bloodsteam with oxygen and travel to the brain which can then stimulate dormant cells.
In a perfect world, Eric will make a youtube video or write a book expressing his thanks to all those who have helped, no matter how big or small.
"Also I would like to thank everyone who reads and shares this. And ask if you are unable to help with financial support, to say a single prayer and ask our heavenly Father to preserve Eric for the kingdom."
"Mind, body and soul
One breath at a time"
