Kurt's Kure

In 2012, here in Grenada, my friend Kurt suffered an arterial gas embolism secondary to a deep diving accident, known more popularly as the diver's disease or the bends. His quick ascenscion from a great depth didn't allow enough time for the nitrogen to diffuse from his blood causing a bubble to form. Since then, that bubble has been compressing his spinal cord rendering him unable to walk or have any sensation below the waist. For 5 years now, Kurt has been prevented from living a full life due to his physical constraints.

In April 2017, Kurt was seen by local physicians here in Grenada who assured him that with further treatment there was "a high probability that his condition will improve." Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment at the price of $9.000 ECD, or $3,370 USD, shows a high likelihood of reversing the effects caused by the bubble compressing his spine, ultimately allowing him to walk again. Kurt has worked tirelessly towards his goal and has already raised 1/3 of the proceeds required for treatment, but the fundraising is slow and difficult due to his limited ability to work. 

For only $2,500 USD, this man has the opportunity to walk again, to return to providing for himself and his 9 year old son, Keleb, and to 
return to his passion for diving. Would 2,500 dollars ever prevent YOU from walking again?
