HELP ME HELP MY BROTHER!

Hello, my name is Shauntel. I am the only girl and the youngest. I have 3 older brothers. In 2010 the baby brother of our family, Terence, had a small lung collapse partially due to pneumonia . A procedure was done to re inflate the lung cavity and they were successful. He remained admitted in the hospital for further observation. As things were looking up for him we were not expecting nor prepared for what was to happen next. In 2011 he experienced another bout of pneumonia. His lungs collapsed once more. He was immediately transferred to ICU where he laid for a total of 62 days in a coma hooked up to every machine possible. Daily we went to see him and kept getting bad reports from the doctors. We believed God. An array of procedures were done yet the lungs wouldn't respond. Miraculously after multiple tries a procedure worked and my brothers physical health began to increase. He was finally released after learning how to walk and write again during rehab. Up until now he has been in and out of the hospital. Medical bills have accumulated and he is about to embark on a new journey through integrative medicine. The extensive treatments are to start in January of 2014. We will have to go once a week for 12 weeks to North Carolina for treatment. Great right? Indeed it is. However the treatments are out of pocket! To help him myself I am giving him half of some of the money that has been saved for my upcoming wedding. Life is far more important to me! However if you can help me raise money for my brother this will greatly help! Thank you!
