My brother has had debilitating health problems his entire life. He had severe asthma when he was 4. The doctors treated it back then with cortisone, which damaged his pancreas and he developed type 1 diabetes. As an adult, he has had a stroke, which caused paralysis from the waist down and took the function of his hands and his speech. His lifelong diabetes has taken a huge toll on him, not the least, of which, came when he lost his sight not long ago. His spirit, though, is unbreakable. He can’t speak well and he suffers daily, but he gives God praise and doesn’t question why this all happened to him. On the contrary, he thanks God for the life he was given.
I’ve started this GoFundMe campaign because, on top of all that he is dealing with, he now needs such expensive dental care that his portion of the implant treatment he requires is over $4000.00 So, I ask you, if you feel compelled to give, even the smallest gift to help my little brother secure the dental care he needs, our family would be so grateful!
His name is Jeremy Thomas. He is a great man, and this assistance would make a truly significant impact on his quality of life.
Thank you .
