Hello! My name is Brandon and I am 5 years old. I can make sounds, babble, roll over, turn pages in books, and I love to laugh and give hugs. My favorite food is yogurt with bananas and strawberry milk, because I don't like to chew. In Texas, I get two hours of therapy a week, but my mama and dada put me in a camp this past summer where I got 5 hours of therapy a day. I learned a lot! I learned to sit up faster and I put my feet flat on the ground and stood up. I learned to move my left foot and then my right foot while holding on to a ladder and I would go forward. I heard my mama and dada get so excited and say, "B, are you walking?! Are you really walking?!" My big brother, Chance, started jumping up and down. Their smiles made me laugh and I wanted to do it more! It was a lot of hard work, but I felt stronger and I learned that I could reach things and I could see better when I was up. Now my parents are trying to send me to another camp in Canada so I can learn more, I really hope I can go. Hello! We are Brandon's parents, Brian and Sally Maher. Brandon is diagnosed with encephalopathy and hypotonia. This means the messages from his brain to his muscles are cloudy. Ability Camp is a 5 week camp in Picton, Ontario that uses Conductive Education in conjunction with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to reroute the messages and enhance the communication from his brain to his muscles. The cost of the camp is $5989 and we are estimating travel at $2500. Health insurance does not cover the cost of the camp, it is all out of pocket. The camp is from November 12-December 14 of this year, if we wait until the next session the cost increases by $3000. Any donations are appreciated to help Brandon. God bless everyone for your donations and keeping our family in your thoughts and prayers. Donations can be accepted 3 different ways: 1. Clicking "Give" on the right hand side of this page. 2.
