Pray for John

In October of 2016 our beloved son John Russell suffered a near drowning a few months before his third birthday.  This once vivacious and charismatic little boy was left with a brain injury leaving him with severe physical disabilities.  We, his parents are desperate to get John top of the line treatments to aide in his recovery.  Specifically we are trying to raise money so that we can take John to a doctor in Los Angeles who specializes in hyperbaric oxygen therapy.  This oxygen therapy has been around for some time now, but doctors are just realizing its positive effects on brain injury healing and recovery.  There is even a case recently in the news where a toddler suffered a near drowning and following hyperbaric oxygen therapy she is now making close to a full recovery!
This therapy can be very promising and also quite expensive.  We both work full time near our home in Las Vegas and we have good health insurance but this therapy is not covered by our insurance.  Any money raised would be used to cover the costs of therapy, lodging, and time away from work.  We would do anything to see our son in less pain and misery.  We love John so much and this therapy is the glimmer of hope we need.  This beautiful boy is in need of your prayers and donations now more than ever.  We are eternally grateful for any way you can help.  God bless.
