 Hello All, Andre was a previously healthy and vibrant 3 year old boy who enjoyed playing basketball, baseball,watching Stephen Curry, and watching Paw Patrol until he caught the flu and it caused swelling on his brain causing him to develop Acute Necrotizing Encephalapthy which is very rare and not very common. Andre is one of the first African American cases of this nasty disease caused from the influenza virus. This disease has a very high mortality rate only 30% of people survive and were blessed to say Andre is part of the 30%!!!!!!! Andre spent 11 days in Valley Childrens PICU and 2 months in rehab. Andre is currently in physical therapy, occuaptional therapy and speech therapy to help him regain skills he lost from this nasty virus.  Andre has been accepted into intensive rehab at NAPA  therapy center in LA for 3 weeks in spring 2018 where he will be doing intense thearpy to regain strength so that he can have more control of his limbs and start working towards walking the cost is 7700$and it not covered by insurance in addition to paying for therapy we would also have to pay for housing which is another 2900$ http://www.napacenter.org/
Andre also got approved to be a canidate for Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy which is experimental but it supposed to speed up the healing process of Brain Injuries since it is experimental it is not covered by insurance the cost of it is $350 per session and he would have to do 10-30 sessions http://www.medhyperbaric.com/contact.html Andre was also accepted into therapy at the plasticity brain center in Orlando Florida where he will therapy to help regain brain plasiticity and help brain heal and develop new synapses and pathways the cost is 7700 for 5 days in addition air fare, and accomodations would be out of our own pocket https://www.plasticitybraincenters.com/

Andre has been thriving in physcial therapy and in Jluy 2018 my insurance will no longer pay as we have used the max for the year, so we will have to pay out of pocket $75 weekly, and physical therapy is imperative to his recovery! 
 Andre was also approved to start Speech therapy weekly to help him talk and communicate which will be $95 per week 

We are also trying to raise money to get a wheelchair accessible van so that I don't have to continue messing my back lifting Andre in and out of the car Andre weighs 50 plus pounds and a wheelchair-accessible van would take a real load off of us and help make things more accessible when transporting him thank you Any amount big or small is appreciated help me get my baby Steph Curry back to where he was hes getting better everyday and your donation will help contribute to his future  thank you in advance Kamareia and Andre

Hello all,
Andre is getting better each day! We have a long road to complete recovery! He is currently doing physical therapy 1x per week, and occupational therapy 1x a week! He also is doing his hyperbaric oxygen treatments 1-2x a week! Andre was recently approved for speech therapy through the Talk Team Fresno, they are hopeful they can help Andre communicate! Unfortunately my insurance won't cover physical therapy after July and I will have to pay out of pocket, and Speech therapy isn't covered all all so I will also be paying out of pocket for that. We are also trying to raise money for a wheel chair accessible van which start at 28,000! Thank you all for your donations and continued support!
