Help for Kelani

Hi my name is Kelani. I was born on April 23rd 2012 in the beautiful British Virgin Islands. I was a full term baby and my mom and dad were so excited to see me. Unfortunately during delivery things went very bad. I suffered loss of oxygen from a tight cord around my neck and I also swallowed miconium. I had to be resuscitated as I wasn't breathing and I was transported to the NICU where I was placed in an incubator and had to use a ventilator to help me breathe. I had many seizures in my first week of life as well as bleeding on my brain, tachycardia and edema. Through out it all I fought hard because everyday my mom spent in the NICU with me, the nights my dad visited on his off days and sang to me and the grace of God gave me the strength to push!! I am now 2 years old and I am developmentally delayed, I have spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy as well as epilepsy. My mom quit her job so that she can take care of me full time and my Dad works almost 20 hours a day. It is rather expensive to take care of me and make sure I receive all the necessary help so that I may excel to the best of my ability. Unfortunately the British Virgin Islands is not equipped nor advanced enough to provide the necessary medical means for me so I travel constantly to see my Neurologist, Neuro Surgeon, ENT just to name a few! My mom has now found out that Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments may be beneficial to me and would love to have me participate in this treatment. I ask that you please make a donation on my behalf so that I may have this treatment at the San Diego Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Center in California. No donation is too small. I thank you all for taking the time out to help me! God Bless..
