Bryan's Medical Fund

Bryan Courtney's life changed suddenly about a decade ago when he was diagnosed with MS - Multiple Sclerosis - a disabling disease of the nervous system. He and his wife Melanie attacked the disease hard and even went to California to seek treatment. After receiving treatment and making several lifestyle choices, Bryan went into remission. For 8 years he had no symptoms and they believed the effects of MS were in their past.  He and Melanie continued their lives. They went through many life changes, including the addition of twins to their family of three and starting a small business Bryan runs. They also constantly gave of themselves for others, loving, serving, and sacrificing for friends and strangers alike regularly. Then without warning on the first Monday of February, Bryan had to be rushed to the E.R. with symptoms that could have been a stroke or his MS returned. Tests confirmed his MS was back, and this time with a vengence. The attack brought with it severe pain, numbness, and a loss of muscle control. Within the week, Bryan had to be rushed back to the E.R. a second time. He and Melanie are seeing doctors and seeking treatment despite the fact that they have no medical insurance. They want to do everything within their power to help and heal Bryan. This starts with prayer, continues with doctor consults, and includes seeking natural remedies and helps. No matter what the recommendations and course of action, it will be a huge financial strain. Already, there are two hospital bills that will come soon. There will also be follow up bills, treatment bills, and higher grocery bills for fresh fruits and vegetables (organic whenever possible), to help Bryan heal (juicing is a big factor in restoring the body, especially in a situation like this). What we'd like to do is wrap this couple in love and practical help. They give of themselves daily for the betterment and blessing of others, and together we can do the same for them.
