Help Justin

Starting wakeboarding at age three my husband quickly became one of the top wakeboarders in Canada competing for over twenty years. I would marvel at how he would fly through the air. He was incredible to watch, he has always loved sports and would challenge himself to be the best. Sadly with many concussions along the way, Justin’s world has changed.... he is now unable to compete in sports. He can’t drive or work and has trouble standing at moments. His  condition continues to worsen. Justin works in roofing and was a volunteer firefighter for three year till he had to stop from his extreme pain. Seeing his dreams and life slipping away from him is the most heartbreaking thing. We are raising money for Justin’s neurological appointments which is over $10,000, so that he can get the treatment he needs and to heal his brain with brain mapping technology as well as other treatments. I am on maternity leave trying my best to take care of them both... he cannot play with our one year old daughter. He is fighting everyday.....Our family is at an all time low. Justin is a My best friend with a heart of gold. I don’t know what I would do without him. He has been in this pain  for over ten years now. My greatest wish is for him to feel better and for my husband to live his dreams of helping others prevent concussions. Thank you so much for your support we appreciate it so much!!!! This money will be the kickstart we need! I am also committed to spreading awareness about concussions and the extreme impacts they have.                                                 Sincerely,    Haley Gratzfeld
