In October 2011, Gary suffered cardiac arrest and sustained Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE). HIE is a condition in which the brain does not receive sufficient blood and oxygen. HIE can cause long-term damage, including physical and intellectual disabilities.
While in a coma, his doctors prepared his family for the worst, stating there was no hope. Today, awake and responsive, Gary resides at the Northeast Center for Special Care, which is a Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center in Lake Katrine, New York. This devastating neurologic injury has left him with many months, possibly years, of intense cognitive, speech and physical therapy to promote his mental and physical wellbeing. Doctors have no prediction at this time for his prognosis, but we pray for a full recovery, and hoping he will be able to come home one day.
Together, with your support, we can raise awareness for Acquired Brain Injury and HIE, along with raising the funds needed to defray the cost of mounting medical, treatments and household bills, as well as travel expenses for his wife(who has been diagnosed with MS)& their daughter to visit him.
All donations big and small are greatly accepted and appreciated, and we welcome your support.
Please contact Susan Zick for further information and how you can help at (607)338-7524 or firstname.lastname@example.org as she is the Head Chairperson.
