Hi everyone, we are here for a special cause.
After two years from the first sign of weakness, and after all the exams he could have done Ravi is “beating up” ALS, this rare disease that is so mysterious. Well what we know is that everyone in the world that knows a little about this, is trying to help in some way. During this time Ravi has been doing all he can, to keep on this journey always positive. He has done many different therapies; acupuncture, hiperbaric chamber, infusion of NAD, went to India for Panchakarma and other holistics treatments and now there’s another possibility for him...
It’s a procedure using HSP (Heat shock protein) @ a Corporation called BTT (Brain Thermal Tunnel) founded by Dr Marc Abreu, a Brazilian doctor that works in Connecticut. And off course, Ravi is keeping his faith and believes that something incredible will come from this. Let’s help with all our heart!!
To make this happen we need to get funds to fly him and his wife Carina from Rio de Janeiro-Brazil to Connecticut- USA + they’re stay in the city for at least one week, on top of the procedure itself. we are talking about $38.000,00. The Procedure costs $32,795.00 + 5,205 for the others expenses. We are one, let’s be part of this!

My name is Cintia Tavares,
I’m Ravi’s sister-in-law, Carina’s sister.
I’m from Brazil but I live in San Diego, California 
for about 13 years now. We used to live together when symptoms of ALS first started. Now they
are in Rio de Janeiro, our hometown.
I just want to assure you this campaign is a
serious one, the intention is to get Ravi to do this
procedure (HSP) in Connecticut.
We need your help!! Together we are stronger!!
