Zion's road to recovery

My 3 year old Zion had a near drowning accident on July 24th.

We were getting ready to have a drive by birthday parade for our 8 year old son when we realized Zion wasn't with us.  He somehow went outside by himself and we found him unresponsive floating in our pool. This has been so devastating.

All of the prayers from our friends and family and even people that we don't know all over the world has helped keep us strong and we know deep in our hearts that god is going to heal Zion's brain.  This road to recovery is going to be a long one but we will never stop working to get our active boy back.

The best treatment for Zion is something called Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.  It is an 8 week treatment which will cost 10,000.

During this time we will have to be away from home and miss work etc, so my goal is to raise 15,000 to cover all expenses. Anything will help.
