Help Aubrey After A Brain Injury

$1,560 of $20,000 goal

I’d like you to meet Aubrey Haase.  She has been an instrumental part of my life over the past couple of years.  She is an amazing trainer and coach, who has made such a difference so many times in my life, and countless others lives as well.

She’s always the first to help someone else, always the first to give freely of herself, but now she needs our help!

Her Story:

While she’s faced a lot of turmoil in her life, she’s never let it stand in her way.  As a paramedic firefighter, she helped save so many lives.  After studying and training with master trainers, training in neuroscience, and human behavior, she decided to start helping save lives in another way; through coaching and training seminars.

This is how I met her.   And my life has never been the same since.  All was well until….

What Happened:

About a year and a half ago, she suffered a traumatic brain injury.  On top of the other concussions she had as a firefighter, and also sports, this head injury caused a lot of bad symptoms.  Crushing headaches, vision changes, having NO energy, numbness in arms, feet, and hands, and extreme muscle weakness.  Because of this she was unable to work at all for a long, long time.

Unfortunately, the neurologist she saw disregarded the head injury, and instead started testing for Multiple Sclerosis.  Test after test, month after month, almost a year went by with her paying these medical bills, not being able to work, and not getting any answers.

It wasn’t until she finally went to a different neurologist who listened to her history and finally correctly diagnosed her with a traumatic brain injury and post concussive syndrome.

While some of the symptoms went away, others, like vertigo, forgetfulness, confusion, and personality changes came on strong.  She went through all her savings by paying both medical and personal bills while being unable to work.  (She has since gotten medical insurance) The neurologist is worried that she has the start of CTE… what football players get from so many concussions.  And today, she still has many of these symptoms that have kept her from doing what she loves to do:  Helping others.

What I am raising money for:

She lost her business, and she is about to lose her house, car, and also her 5 rescue cats which she loves dearly.

Because of the long term effects, she has not been able to get her business back due to both physical and financial restrictions.  She was turned down for disability, but she’s trying again, while working other jobs as much as she can to pay the bills.

She found a clinic in Utah that say they have been able to lower post concussive syndrome symptoms by between 40 and 70%.  It is an intense rehab, were you are basically an inpatient, and working every day.  Insurance will not cover the $11,000 bill for the therapy and housing.  This may be her only way to go back to living a semi normal kind of life.

In addition to that, she needs money to pay her immediate bills, and keep her house and pets.  She’s at risk of being evicted even as we speak.  She will also need some money to get her business back up and running after the treatment. 

This is what all the money is going towards.  After helping so many people in her life, it’s time for us to help her.

Why this is so important to me:

Like I said before, I wouldn’t be who or where I am today without her guidance, love, and friendship.  She is one of the most incredible people I have ever known.  And it’s not just me who says that.  Anyone you talk to whose life she has touched will say the same thing.  She is so loving, giving, and when you talk to her you feel like you are the most important person in the world. 

Even now, while she’s going through so much, she will put everything aside and be there for you….  Even if she doesn’t know you. That’s just who she is.  If she only had a dime to her name, she’d give you a nickel if you needed it. 

33002612_1537062893825574_r.jpeg
She believes that being in service is the best gift she can give.  And she truly wants to help others, and help the world. For everyone that she has helped, we now get to help her.  We need to let her know right now that she is just as important as she makes everyone else feel.  Because I know, that when she gets back on her feet, she will pay it forward a million times over, because that’s just who she is.

And I can’t just sit by and watch someone like this struggle from an unfortunate injury, when she has so much to give to the world, and hasn’t had the chance to do so lately.

PLEASE SHARE:

After you have donated, please share this any way you can:  On Facebook, on twitter, with your family and friends.  I know we can hit or exceed our goal, and the difference we make in her life, will truly be passed down in the way that she will help others when she’s back on her feet and giving freely to the world.  If there’s anyone who deserves our love and charity at this time, it’s Aubrey.

This week, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, it's time to be thankful for what we have. One of those things we take for granted, is the full use of our brain, and all that entails.

Aubrey has been having bad symptoms of her brain injury. And as we give thanks for our friends and family, I know she will be thankful for you taking a few moments out of your day to share this fundraiser, along with a comment on why she is important to you.

This is a time when we can give back. I know you already donated. I appreciate that. But there's so much more to do. Sometimes it's easy to think "well, at least I did something", but Aubrey is still hurting, and we're far far away from our goal to get her treatment.

So please, like this campaign by clicking on the heart inside of go fund me. It helps get momentum from others. Then please share a few more times.

She is grateful for all the help, and just imagine what it's like to know you made a huge difference in someone's life by helping them get the treatment they need to go back to living a normal life.

Thank you for all you've done and continue to do. Let's give her something to be thankful for this week!

Aubrey is giving up...

She made a video here talking about what's up.

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10156015522747711&id=671107710

Although you wouldn't know it, her symptoms are really in the way of her life. Like she said... It's an invisible injury.. But she's not doing well right now.

Please. Please. Please... Share this... Reach out to people... Let them know to share as well... She deserves to get treatment that can totally change her life!!

Won't you please continue to share this link until we hit our goal? Wouldn't you want your friends to do the same if it were you?

Share, donate, show others, share again.. Whatever you can do.

And reach out to her to tell her not to give up!!

It's been two weeks since the last donation. We are extremely far away from our goal. If everyone could take a minute from their day and share again on their facebook wall, along with a sentence or two, we can get this campaign rolling again.

None of the symptoms she lives with every day are going to get better until she gets the treatment she needs... The treatment has been shown to lower symptoms 40-70%. As Aubrey says "If I could be 40% better, I'd have a completely different life!"

Let's work together to give her this life. I'm sure most of you who donated, if you had an abundance of money, would simply pay for her treatment. I know I would. The next best thing is to share this in hopes that others help raise funds for her.

Don't forget about her. Don't forget about what she goes through every day, what she feels like every day, and all the things she can't do every day from these symptoms. Maybe one day, if we work together, she can wake up and have 40% less symptoms. Don't you think she deserves that?

Hey everyone....

A pretty important update.. Although she's not saying much to anyone, Aubrey was let go from her job on Monday... Her symptoms were affecting her performance, and the decision was not based on medical, but on production...

We need donations now more than ever... Not just to help her with her bills, but to get her the treatment she needs to go back to having some kind of life.

PLEASE...... SHARE... Reach out to people. Say some heartfelt comment in the share... But we haven't had any donations in a week, and only two in the last two weeks..

You can literally save someone's life today by sharing with your family and friends....

So please... Like this campaign (click the heart), but share... As much as you can. A few seconds pressing a couple of buttons, along with a nice little sentence can change her life.

And if you know her, you may want to reach out to her even if it's just to say hi.

She gives so much to others, it's time the world gives back.

THANK YOU!! I know we can do this!!!
