CCSVI Surgery for Darren Lovell

As many of you know, my dear brother Darren, was diagnosed with Progressive Multiple Sclerosis a couple years ago. We have watched him go from a very active lifestyle, working up to 16 hours a day, riding his Harley, taking trips, and doing day trips with his kids, to being extremely fatigued, not being able to see out of one eye, walking with a cane, having little balance, and struggling through every day. To say the least, it has been heartbreaking to watch the decline, as he has gone from a very happy young man, to one who has to fight to make it through each day.

I am very happy to announce there is a treatment that can assist in MS patients return to almost 90% normality. It is offered in only a few places around the world, one being in Newport, California. After much research and testing, Darren has been selected as a candidate for the surgery. He will be leaving the week of July 13, 2014, and the cost will be $18,000. Darren is only 35 years old, and this is LIFE ALTERING SURGERY! !! His kids deserve to have their dad back, doing what they love with him! 

We are asking for your support to help donate to the cost of this trip. No matter how big or small, every cent counts. We will also be doing a few other things to help raise funds!! If you are not comfortable donating online, I'd be more than happy to make whatever arrangements necessary to pick up funds in person. I will also accept email money transfers that go directly into an account set up for this cause. My email address is [email redacted]. I have also set up an account at Bank of Montreal, if you would rather transfer funds or deposit directly . Please email me for the account number. 

Please note, the date is July 13, so we don't have much time to raise money. The surgeon was able to get him in quickly. If you are not able to donate money, please donate your time by sharing this link to everyone you know. Thank you all in advance. I will keep you updated in regards to the surgery outcome!
