EDIT: February 12th, 2018
Noah completed his treatment on February 11th at dive number 38. Noah had been getting very cranky going into the chamber lately so we decided to be done, for now. I am again asking for donations, if
you can, to start saving for another round in about 6 weeks. Our goal is ideally 120 dives. Each treatment is 40 dives. But, if I can at least give him one more round I would be grateful. He has come so far I can’t imagine how much further he can go if given the chance to come see Dr. Harch again. Please consider giving to Noah’s cause. As always, it all goes straight to Noah. Thank you all❤️

we have managed to come up with the remaining amounts needed to get Noah to New Orleans. We are thankful and blessed that this burden has been lifted. But being hundreds of miles from home is another burden in itself. We are still asking for donations so that we can survive the 8 weeks of treatment away from home. Noah has had just 11 treatments and has shown so much improvement. We would love for you to follow his story on Facebook- Noah’s Miraculous Journey - or @noahvanwhittington in your Facebook search bar.
On July 11th 2018 two year old Noah Whittington had a nearly fatal drowning accident. He was vacationing in Texas and when his father and I arrived we were told that we would be lucky if he made it. So far Noah has shown such strength and has proven the doctors wrong. We are now looking at oxygen therapy and hyperbaric oxygen chambers in New Orleans along with stem cell treatments at Duke. There are other options for his treatment but his father and I want to avoid him having to be on all sorts of medications that can potentially damage his liver. On August 2nd 2018 Noah smiled and laughed at us, and every day brings more small improvements. The doctors here have agreed to give him 100 percent oxygen treatments which is the first step on the road to hyperbaric.
We aren't sure of what the total costs will be but unfortunately this treatment is not covered by his insurance. We are also from Florida and will have to do a lot of traveling. Anything you can donte will be greatly appreciated and I guarantee it will ALL go towards Noah's recovery.
We just wanted to update everyone on Noah’s progress: So far we believe his vision has come back(they intially told us he was blind), and he is starting to become more and more aware every day! We are SO very close to our goal, at about $8,000 raised so far. We only need $2,000 more and we can take Noah to New Orleans! We’ve already made all the phone calls to Dr. Harch and basically they are just waiting on us. Please help our Christmas Wish come true! All we want from this is the possibility of our son saying Momma, Daddy, I love you. You can’t imagine how hard it is to not hear that sweet, rotten voice anymore. We know not everyone is in a position to help, but if you could just share this page we would be so appreciative.
