Fast forward 19 months and on the outside Cameron seems to be healed. No more trach. No more gtube. A modern miracle! He is walking, running, playing and smiling but he is still not our Cameron. He continues to have seizures and we don’t know the cause. He has been left unable to speak, his eyes are often vacant and cognition is not where it used to be. His behavior can be infantile and hard to handle. His hugs are short and he no longer asks to cuddle. He does not play team sports because he cannot follow directions. It is not easy to find care for him because of his complex nature and his inability to follow directions. Yes, on the outside things seem to be fixed but he still has a long way to go. We have not given up hope that Cameron will have the normal life that he deserves.
We have prayed for over a year for an answer and we believe that we may have found it; Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). HBOT is a medical treatment which enhances the body's natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. The treatment is unconventional but has been known to work. Unfortunately, this is a treatment that is not covered by insurance. Prior to now, we have been blessed to be able to afford Cameron’s mounting medical bills and expenses that are a direct result of his rare condition.
Friends and family, we need your help. We are reaching out to you to ask for your help in making a miracle come true for Cameron.
No treatment is 100% guaranteed but we feel that this has a great probability. Currently his treatment is medication. Medications that result in side effects that impact cognition and even cause seizures! Also, the medication is for the purpose of controlling the seizures but we don’t have an answer for healing Cameron. We still pray for total restoration! We still believe.
“In CP and TBI patients, some of the injured brain tissues may be "dormant" and non-functioning. HBOT can stimulate these "dormant" tissues and return them to more normal function. In young children, cognitive function and spasticity can be improved. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, used in conjunction with other therapies, ensures the best recovery possible for children with cerebral palsy and traumatic brain injury.” – Harch Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
We believe in this enough that we are willing to relocate to New Orleans for two months for the first round of treatment. We want Cameron to be treated by the world renowned HBOT medical professional, Dr. Harch. Unlike many of his colleagues, Dr. Harch has vast experience in dealing with epilepsy and autistic children.
The first round of treatment is $9,000 (it may require several rounds). We will travel back and forth to New Orleans during this period of time (2 months). This will require housing, plane flights, etc. Please continue to join as we chase hope and support our miracle baby, Cameron. We thank you for your continued prayers and in advance for your financial support.
40 HBOT treatments @ $200 = $8000
Doctor Fees for Treatments = $1000
2nd Round of HBOT treatments @ $300 = $12000
Housing @ $90/day for 60 days = $5400
Airplane Transportation @ $500 round trip (8 round trip tickets) = $4000
Total anticipated expenses = $30,400
