Last Friday, I posted a Sit Down with my friend, Cavin Balaster, who suffered a TBI in May 2011. Since that time, a mini-campaign has begun thanks to some great friends, as we all came to realize the potential impact Cavin’s book will have on Developmental Optometry and the world of brain injury sufferers. Cavin is trying to raise $15,000 through Kickstarter to fund and publish his writing. He needs our help.
Over the weekend, Dr. Press shared his ideas on the topic in the VisionHelp blog, comparing Cavin’s potential impact to the likes of Sue Barry, PhD. You can read those thoughts here.
I spent a few hours with Cavin and his delightful mother over lunch on Sunday, and discussed Cavin’s plans for his book. Simply put, Cavin wants to tell his story; he wants to share with the world what Vision Therapy, and other therapies, have done for him.
If you’ve already donated, let me be the first to thank you, on Cavin’s behalf. Please take one more step in helping us by forwarding this email to like-minded individuals (doctors, vision therapists and office personnel) via email, List-Serv’s or public forums who will understand that a $10 drop in the bucket will be re-paid in volumes when Cavin’s book is released, and patient’s with brain injuries understand the value in calling a Developmental Optometrist first.
If you have not yet donated, please consider helping Cavin spread his message with a $10 donation, which will in turn, help us all. Please also forward this email to anyone who may be interested in helping.
Cavin’s message is powerful and simply cannot be allowed to go untold – for his sake and ours.
