I want to thank everybody for your support and generosity. Since I’ve been home from Kennedy Krieger I have shown vast improvement in my left arm especially. I learned so much in such a short time, it was sometimes overwhelming. I learned several new therapies that I can easily do it home, however getting some of the equipment is a struggle. I was able to get the smaller pieces of equipment, but the larger items are quite expensive.

The total comes to around $29,400.00. Yes, this is a lot of money to be asking for. I believe in myself, I believe I can get some of my movement back doing everything that Kennedy Krieger showed me. The are experts in this field. They know what works and what doesn’t. They will not waste your time or theirs. I look forward to using the new equipment!

Thank you for your service. My wife is a paraplegic so I know it must be a struggle at times. Keep the faith. I know it's not much but every bit helps. You sound like you have a positive attitude. Keep on the VAs ass and fight for what you need, appeal if you need to. Good Luck, John and Jen from Port Charlotte.
