David Kramer is my landlord. When I first heard of his urgent situation, I felt compelled to help him because, in spite of his condition of chronic ongoing brain strokes, David lives his life in such an inspiringly positive and upbeat way. David believes that with God all things are possible. He is kind and exhibits strong faith believing in the good of people. Here is his story.
In 2008, David noticed that something was changing with his brain.
He was only 54 years old, but he noticed a rapid decline, he struggled to remember things and he began to sense an increasing pressure in his head. Working became more difficult as his short-term memory loss increased. He also began to fall and to lose his balance, injuring himself on the same steps that he had walked up and down for 30 years.
Then, in early 2018, one day he woke up unable to walk without holding on to the wall. He was omitted to the Cleveland Clinic but five days later he was discharged without a specific diagnosis.Multiple Misdiagnosis
After being evaluated by doctors from two major Cleveland hospitals and undergoing two brain surgeries which proved to be unnecessary. Doctors in Cleveland thought he had excess fluid in the brain, but he did not. The two brain surgeries were unnecessary.
David was diagnosed with Chronic Microvascular Ischemic Disease
, a condition that occurs when there is an insufficient supply of oxygen and blood flow reaching the brain. This explains his short-term memory loss, the painful head pressure and his imbalance problems.
Doctors said, "David, you're having these chronic ongoing small brain strokes in your brain continually. There are areas of your brain that are just dying. It's going to continue to happen. We're sorry, there's really nothing we can do for you."
When the doctors told David there is no treatment for his condition and that he would be in a wheel chair and nursing home in two years he REFUSED
to believe that there was nothing that could be done for him and began to do his own research.Finding the Answer
David learned about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
, a process that uses a combination of oxygen and pressure to push oxygen throughout the body. This combination activates the person’s stem cells and preserves the brain cells that are slowly dying, while at the same time it begins to improve blood flow to cells in the brains vascular system essentially, NEW BRAIN! This requires being in a special hyperbaric chamber.
David’s research finally led him to Paul Harch, M.D.
who has been practicing Hyperbaric medicine for over 33 years in New Orleans and has helped thousands of patients with illnesses and injuries ranging from drowning to traumatic brain injury, including ischemias, stroke, and neurological diseases. Though hyperbaric treatment is available in the Cleveland area, there are no places that have the experience that Dr. Harch offers for treating David’s condition.Treatment Protocol
To obtain the therapy, David is required to live in New Orleans. He must have three 3-month treatments each consisting of a total of 40 sessions followed by a 30-day period of rest from therapy. After successfully completing these treatments in New Orleans, he’ll need to purchase a $25,000 hyperbaric chamber that he must use for the rest of his life when he returns home to Cleveland. Necessary Resources
David needs your help to continue his treatment which is not covered by his insurance. (While HBOT is used for many conditions in over 80 countries including countries in Western Europe, Israel, Russia and China, the United States FDA has approved HBOT for 12 conditions, but does not include David’s condition at this time.)Funding is needed for David’s hyperbaric treatments, scans, housing in New Orleans, and a $25,000 hyperbaric chamber to be used in his home.
David continues to amaze me. Not only does he live his life with positivity, but he is a motivational speaker who wants to give back and bring hope to others who may be struggling. His kindness is infectious, and he is a compassionate engaging and motivates people to action.
With your support you can help provide David with the therapy treatment that he desperately needs to regrow his brain. In doing so you can help him share his success with others.
You could be part of something much larger. David’s efforts can bring significant media attention for the expanded uses of HBOT in the area of brainstrokes, strokes, altzheimers, dementia, multiple sclerosis, PTSD, Autism and over 50 other uses.
David calls his healing “SELF STEM-CELL” regeneration. Expanding HBOT throughout the US
could potentially help tens of millions of people with no hope enjoy a wonderful life.
Someone in this country needs to draw attention to why our govermment FDA approve HBOT for only 12 uses while other countries have approved HBOT for 60-70 uses. If anyone can bring media attention for change, David can. His healing could make him HBOT’s most vocal advocate.
HBOT Self Stem-Cell research is invaluable research that can lead us closer to finding cures for many diseases while using the body’s resources.How Can You Help David?
