Get healthy Captain Christian fund

Christian is STILL trying to regain health after 5 months of fatigue and various nasty stomach infections. We thought he'd beat what he had, but it has persisted. As many of you know, insurance only covers so much, especially when you are sailing out of the country and even less coverage for holistic treatment. He is currently receiving 10-14 days of holistic care in a intensive center in Mexico. Our medical portion of our cruising kitty has taken quite a hit with all of this. Please help us fund his past $1500 in medical treatment and current $1500 in holistic treatment. We are hopefull that after holistic treatment he will fully recover and we can can return to sailing the World. Check out the holistic center, it's no cake walk for health, but it's amazing!

I want to send one more thank you out to all who supported us. We almost reached our goal and only in a matter of a few days! Christian is doing better, still on a detox program, but feeling better everyday.

Well folks,
We get to have Christian back on the boat tomorrow! He will have completed 10 days at the holistic center in El Grullo. He's feeling tremendously better, but still has a ways to go to get his body back to a clean state. We are so happy to have found this place and again are very grateful for all of the support. He will continue on a strict dietary cleansing regimen for another month and will most likely be working through this for another 3 or more months. With patience, love and your support he, we, have and will continue to get through this.

With gratitude,

Wow! The fund has raised over $2000! Thank you so much for all the support, both monetary and with positive thoughts. Christian has had 4 really good days of complete feeling well. The place, he says, is not a retreat center by any mean. Everyday is raw fruits and veggies, herbal tea, juices and other non pleasurable detox treatments. Although Christian was relatively healthy to begin with, his body must have needed a serious cleanse. With of these major dietary changes, his stomach discomforts has subsided and his overall energy is up! Yay. The plan is for him to stay there until Saturday and then return to the boat. He will have to continue with a pretty strict diet for another 35 days to really solidify the benefits of all the treatment he is currently getting. Again, thanks for all the support. We'll continue with updates.

Thanks again for all of your support. We have reached 2/3rd of our goal already!
Christian said that he had his first full day without any stomach issues yesterday! Hopefully today goes as well. He's planning on remaining at the center for another week. We'll keep you posted on his progress!
