Colby's Post Concussion syndrome

hey everybody thank you for taking the time to read this! My little brother received a major concussion After being tackled while playing flag football in gym (my brothers little for his age and the kid was twice his size) 18 months ago. After the concussion he missed a few months of school from dealing with serious Post Concussion Syndrome. To this day, 18 months later, somedays he can not even stay at school because his migraines are so bad, and he's actually an 8th grader that wants to learn. Believe or not there are even people who have told him he is "faking it" or "it's not that bad, suck it up". My little brother can't do anything. He can't play occer anymore, can't play any contact sports, isn't even allowed to ride his ATV because it will set him back a few weeks just because that all requires him to "focus too much" or he could get hit again. My mom has to go to multiple doctors appointments every week, with countless co-pays, and tolls, and tons of miles to drive along with her also working full time. He has been working closely with eye doctors to help him be able to focus again, concussion specialists, and even a physical therapy doctor to help train his brain to "think right".

Now for the reason I'm asking for help! There is one specialist who works closely with the Philadelphia Flyers players and other professional athletes who deal with Post Concussion Syndrome patients. For over a year now he's basically been barely improving, so they told my mom about this one specialist up in Canada who apparently works "miracles". There's a procedure he performs that has helped countless patients like my brother who have had these symptoms for YEARS , and 99% of them say the the next day all of they're symptoms are for the most part GONE, and if not the pain is greatly decreased! He helped Ian Laperriere of the Flyers when he got hit with the puck in the face and it helped him a lot as well!

My mom has been talking with a lady who was in the same position as my brother and who had her symptoms cured by this specialist and had talked with my brother and they have decided to make the trip to Canada this spring. The only problem is, it isn't cheap. My mom doesn't do anything for herself EVER. She does everything she can for me and my two brothers. Not only is she going to have to take off work and lose pay, she's doing everything she can just to raise the money to go. I hate seeing my mom so upset, and crying constantly because of my brother, and I hate seeing my brother in so much pain. I really wanna help raise whatever money I can to help my mom and surprise her with the money she needs to get her and my brother to Canada to hopefully cure him of the Post Concussion Syndrome symptoms that he's been dealing with for a year and a half now!! Please go to the link and donate any amount, doesn't matter how little anything will help!!! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE!! I APPRECIATE IT MORE THAN YOULL EVER KNOW!
