A Father In Need of Therapy.

Hi My name is Ryan Fox. I am a father bed ridden with a head neck and jaw injury that went undiagnosed for 8+ months. Though I've been bed ridden now for 16 months now since July 11 2013, missing what fatherly things I wish I could do. Like hug my kids and wife I push on with little hope that someone will figure this out, some Dr or specialist.

Little by little i find out I had a concussion and whiplash injury that I suffered from for 8 months my Dr didnt send me to a neurologist until March of 2014, 8 months after I was hit in July of 2013. A week later i found out I had a misaligned Atlas my C1 verterbrae in my neck was twisted out of alignment causing my spine to twist like it shows in the pictures. i recieved treatment for my neck to correct the position of my atlas.

A few fundraisers in the past have helped me get to the Specialists who diagnosed, treated and are treating my Atlas and my TMJ. Now its just the muscles that need to be restored.

But the damage to my muscles has been done. My body is like this as a result of the huge delay of diagnosis and treatments. I need to go through therapy to restore the damage to my muscles and skeletal system ( Physio, Acupuncture, massage, TMJ therapies) its my only hope at getting back to a normal life. 

As a father and husband and previous provider I cannot lay here while my family struggles. Being bed ridden I am unable to work, my wife had to quit her job to look after my 5 year old autistic son, who requires a lot of attention, also to take care of me.

I havent the heart to tell them that I failed them. My heart hurts for them. 

I'm trying to raise to  get through Christmas at least and At the same time for treatment. So i can be with them and surprise them (hopefully) on Christmas if therapy helps me get better

all i wish is to be beside them again and not bed ridden please help change my life.

Please help me to get my life back, and help me try to surprise them by getting into the therapies i need. I beg of you. please if youre visiting this and see this please share. if i manage to get better i will pay it forward and update it.

email is available if you leave a comment on the campaign page i will get back to you right away. after all im stuck in bed mostly anyway.





skype available if you wish to talk in (person)

My son and I he was so happy he thought we were going for a walk but his heart was crushed when I told him we weren't.

His smile is soo precious and to see it disappear crushes me and makes me cry. He needs me so dearly please help. You will be helping my family get there dad back and my wife get her husband back.
