Help James Walk Again! #NVRGIVUP

James is making great progress, but still in need of financial support to continue his recovery!

The goal is to help James to continue his recovery program at Deer Run. Annually, there are more than $30,000 in costs insurance will not cover.

James continues to have a great outlook and attitude.  He works hard every day and although it is clearly a very long journey, he refuses to give up and continues to make progress at Deer Run Rehabilitation.  #NVRGIVUP

Your support has helped him to go from no hope - to standing tall and taking steps!  

James' dad, Jim, has been diagnosed with  cancer and is now unable to work.

100% of all donations go exclusively to help pay for the cost of the Deer Run Rehabilitation program for James.  This healing environment is exactly what he needs and has brought hm to this amazing level of recovery. 

Thank you for your ongoing love, prayers and support for James and his recovery. Praise God, it is working!

More Background Information on James' Injury...
James suffered Traumatic Brain Injuries in an auto accident. Now that James is able to be in full-time rehabilitation, his insurance will not pay for the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) rehabilitation facility he needs to recover and walk again. Deer Run Rehabilitation in Midland, Michigan is a rehabilitation facility that provides the appropriate environment for physical healing and cognitive stimulation for TBI patients. They have what James needs for intensive cognitive & speech recovery, muscle building and flexibility therapies to rebuild the use of his legs and right arm...and it is working for him!  Just take a look at the photos and videos on this site and also on his Facebook Page: James Independence Day
