on behalf of Kim Mayberry


Hello, my name is Sherry Jackson, I'm Christian's Aunt Sherry and would like to tell you some very exciting news that we truly believe will be a game changer for my nephew! Christian is going to Chicago to see two doctors that are having marvelous results with TBI patients. One of the wonderful followers on the Pray for Mayberry site gave my sister Kim the name of a book about a miraculous turnaround for a man that had a TBI and his journey to find an answer to healing his brain so that he may lead a normal life again.

When my sister told me about this book I immediately down loaded and began to read and found that I could not stop reading and could not wait to get to what or who was going to be able to help this man on his very long journey! Before I go any further the name of this wonderful book is the " The Ghost In My Brain" by Clark Elliott. In the book, he describes his 8 yearlong journey and the insurmountable challenges and trials. All while being told by the best Doctor in the country this is your life now, there is nothing more we can do, you just must learn to live with it. He never stopped looking and because of his persistence He found Dr. Donalee Marcus and Dr. Deborah Zelinsky Long story short after years of "there is nothing more that can be done" He heard from both of these Doctors "I can help you!" and they did just that!! He said after seeing these Doctors it was like coming out of an 8 yearlong dream as well as he felt "normal" for the first time in 8 years!! Today he is living a completely normal, back to his old life and he gives all the credit to these 2 Doctors whom he refers to as Geniuses! Dr. Marcus has suggested that Christian see Amy Lukos while we are there. I have read many other accounts of other TBI patients who also have been given their life back with these Doctors. We feel finding these Doctors is a gift from God.

The reason this book has tugged at my heart so much is because of the daily hardships I have witnessed my nephew going through. Many times, during reading this book I had to stop and wipe the tears just thinking of how in this world does Christian get through even one day of his life dealing with the struggles of his brain. I stayed with them last fall for 2 weeks and truly saw what a TBI patient goes through and I pray daily for some peace to come to him, his Mother and Grandma who takes care of him every day 24/7.

Christian will require several trips to Chicago which will be very costly and his Mother has limited income, nearly none of the treatments will be covered by his insurance. Any donation would be a blessing. His first trip will be the 23rd of April. Please pray with us Thank you so much, God Bless, Sherry Jackson

To all my friends, family and #prayformayberry followers hello everyone, I realize we are all busy in our daily lives but I would like to ask you to take a little break and let me tell you about three awesome people that have taken two and a half weeks from their daily lives to go on a fund-raising trip for my nephew Christian Mayberry to go to Chicago to get some very exciting medical treatments.
When Jered Allen , Jilly Bean and Geanie Finley Folder heard about this they decided to go on this trip and continue to raise money for his treatments. They are traveling all the way from Florida to Maine with 28 stops, sharing Christians story with anyone that will listen.
We are only a few days from Christian leaving for Chicago and I cannot express enough how excited he is! We are still far off when our goal and with Christian requiring several trips to Chicago I am praying that we get more funds. Donalee Marcus who Christian is going to be see was hired by NASA to teach and train her program on the brain and we all are praying that this is the answer we have been waiting for!
Christian and Kim are so very grateful to everyone that has helped him and everyone that is praying, they love and appreciate you so much!
If you would like to follow Jered, Jilly and Geanie’s travels please go to their Facebook pages and her links are below.

Christian Mayberry was a typical, normal 16-year-old enjoying life. I must say he was happier, sweeter than most 16-year-olds. Then September 1, 2013 happened and life as we knew it was over! He was thrown from an ATV suffering a Trumatic brain injury. In the beginning they told us he might not make it. Then when he made it they told us that he very well might be like that, the way he was for the rest of his life. The way he was was lying in a hospital bed his left side completely paralyzed, not saying a word, not looking at you no expression whatsoever, in diapers, and being fed through a peg tube! We told them that they were wrong and we were going to get our boy back but it has certainly been a long tough journey. He didn't say a word for nearly 6 months, it was well over a year before he took his first step. We were in hospitals rehabs in three different states and even a nursing home which was our worst nightmare! We were gone from home nearly 2 years trying to get our boy back.

Today he is a walking, talking miracle. He goes to churches and give his testimony how the Lord helped him every step of the way. And one of his favorite things to tell people is how the night that this happened to him he died and went to heaven and was with the Lord. He has regained his life in many ways but we still have many challenges. His vision was greatly damaged, he walks but is unsteady, his short-term memory is nonexistent and as it is normal with brain injury he suffers depression. He understands that he is now a 20-year-old they can't drive, go to work, have a girlfriend and has to be with someone at all times!
