Help Me WALK Again Please

$36,124 of $34,000 goal

Created February 7, 2019
I am a 44-year-old male, I became paraplegic after my second spine surgery at U.W. (University of Washington) in May 2016.

All this started as Melioidosis Bacteria in Thailand where I was for my honeymoon in August 2015. Having returned to Africa-Sudan, I went into a coma for 19 days to be airlifted to the American Hospital in Paris. I had stayed there for 90 days until I regained consciousness.

December 2015, I was flown to U.W. Where they found Aspergilousus Fungal infection in my Spinal Cord. U.W. failed to treat the infection by all kinds of Antibiotics.

May 5, 2016: I underwent my second surgery. I felt my legs and was even able to wiggle my toes the next two days after the surgery. However, on the third day, I got paralyzed from T5 down.

Your support is crucial in my efforts to solve the problem. I strive for gaining full functionality and being able to walk again. I am motivated to do all kinds of physical therapy, but it does not help much. Brooks Rehabilitation in Jacksonville, FL made me hopeful again to restore my health and full control over my lower extremity at least.

Why I need your help:
Brooks Rehab is the only center in the U.S. that offers Cyberdyne HAL Exoskeleton Technology. HAL for Medical Use (Lower Limb Type) is the world’s first robotic treatment device that allows a patient to walk in a supported environment using their own internal signals to help improve walking upon the completion of the HAL treatment program. HAL fits over a person’s waist and legs and is used in combination with a Body Weight Support system.

$34,000 is the total cost for Brooks Rehab cost, plus travel, caregiver, transportation and accommodation expenses for 6 weeks. 

If there is any amount you can donate I would be immensely grateful. If you can't donate, but still want to help, please help by sharing my story with as many family and friends as possible and by keeping me in your thoughts and prayers. 

Thank you for all of you who have reached out. We appreciate you all more than you know.

Sincerely,

Haytham Mohamed
