While the above message may sound impressive, the real story has a much more tragic tone. After serving our country on multiple deployments and while just beginning to build his post-duty life in Las Vegas, Devin was struck by a motorist while riding his motorcycle. The result of this crash is that Devin has lost most of the use of his dominant right arm from the shoulder down to fingertips. Revolutionary and cutting edge stem-cell therapy is available specifically for cases like Devin’s and it’s benefits, even to the point of full recovery/mobility, have been proven. But the cost is not covered by Devin’s insurance and the amount is a devastating figure to Devin’s financial position. Treatments can cost between $20k - $60K each and Devin needs multiple sessions. Hyperbaric chamber therapy has also been shown to be effective, but those treatments are $150 each and need to happen 5 days per week for the next 6 months. These costs do not include possible follow up surgeries and physical therapy.
Devin’s primary goal is to regain sensory and motor function in his right arm so that he can continue his service by educating and mentoring others who may have had a similarly tragic event. He wants to volunteer at his local VA hospital and retirement homes, along with his trusty companion Raider, of course. Devin’s final goal is to educate the public on the injury, recovery and use of stem-cells in the medical arena. But he needs your help.
Please find it in your heart to donate to Devin’s GoFundMe account. If we stand together, we all rise. Thank you.
