Open Heart Open House :: September

Meet your Upward Spiral community at our next open house. We are opening our doors to you and our hearts to a member of our community that is on his own healing journey.

Read about 5 Ways You Can Help!

Trevor Joyce is a veteran of the U.S. Army and a survivor of a Traumatic Brain Injury. In 2009, while stationed state-side, Trevor suffered a bullet wound to the head. He does not at this time have control over most of his body and cannot talk, though he sure can laugh. Trevor has been our client since 2011 and has a dear place in our hearts. We'd like to honor him and his healing journey at our next Open Heart Open House.

Trevor will receive 100% of the donations from our classes on Sept 20 as well as 10% of all our sales for the day. 

We also have two therapists who will be on staff to provide specialized relaxation treatments for donations as well. 

Trevor loves the Biomat as a part of his massage treatment when he comes to the office. His mom and guardian, Leslie Cook, believes that having one at home for daily treatments would benefit him greatly. Like most equipment purchases, they've had a hard time getting the VA to approve this purchase and cannot afford to pay for it out of pocket at this time. But we believe we can all come together to make this happen for this special member of our community.

Our goal for the fundraiser is to raise enough finds to buy him a Biomat of his own, only $1600!

***As of September 15th, we've already received $250 in donations; you can donate below and help us reach our goal faster!***
