Isolation tank for Brain injury PTSD rehab

Chris, my husband of 17 years and best friend is a retired Canadian Armed Forces member who also served as a Firefighter with many overseas tours. Unfortunately he has suffered many concussions and many injuries related to his job including TBI, PTSD, auditory processing disorder and CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy). There is no cure and no medication for CTE...no magic pill, only therapies to try to cope daily.  Isolation tank therapy has been shown to bring down the symptoms of the injuries.  He has had measurable relief from the therapy tank but unfortunately the closest tanks are 2 hours away and due to Covid there is a chance that this will be closed again due to outbreaks.  There are limited hours as well which makes accessing these tanks very difficult. This is also expensive and not covered by Veterans Affairs.   Having a home unit of this tank will enable him to use this daily to help with the overwhelming and negative brain activity. Noy to mention the added time away from home and daughter to travel back and forth. We have sold what can be sold in order to purchase a unit for the home.   As we sell things we are updating what us left to go to get this therapy for him. We appreciate every penny donated.
