Help Nathan Major Walk!

August 8, 2012 at 5 months old Nathan went limp and was barely breathing. He was rushed to Children’s hospital where he underwent emergency brain surgery. He was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury which left him with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, cortical vision impairment, epilepsy, hydrocephalus and global brain damage. A shunt was placed for his hydrocephalus.
When he was discharged from the hospital doctors didn’t believe he would ever walk, talk or even sit up on his own. With early on and pt/ot twice a week at 2 years old Nathan still wasn’t able to sit up, roll over, hold his head up, he was only able to eat finely puréed food, drink from a bottle and wasn’t aware of his surroundings.
We heard about hyperbaric oxygen therapy and intense physical therapy. Against doctors advice, they thought it would make him worse or wouldn’t help. We researched and decided it was our best opportunity to improve Nathan’s quality of life. On 3/17/2012 Nathan started HBOT! The scariest decision I’ve ever made was putting him in he chamber but it proved to be the best decision we could make for him. With these therapies he learned to roll over, sit up on his own, crawl, eat solid foods, drink from a straw, babble with some words, understand language, he was weened from his 2 seizure medications and seizure free, his vision dramatically improved and he loves to knee walk!
2018 will be the year Nathan walks! He will be having foot surgery in April. HBOT and intense physical therapy will help him have the best opportunity to reach his goal of walking!
This is where we need your help. Unfortunately, insurance doesn't cover any of these therapies. We are a single income family of seven as Nathan needs constant care. Our goal is to give Nathan every opportunity to improve his quality of life. We are asking for donations from you to be Nathan's Hero and help give him the life he deserves. No donation is to small. Thank you for your support!!❤️
