Please help Limerick man Brian Hogan!

Brian is a 35 year old man from Limerick, Ireland. He is the fourth child in a family of six children. He lived in Nottingham, England for nine years working as a quantities surveyor for a construction company after completing his degree at the University of Limerick. He is also an accomplished singer, musician and songwriter. He is dearly loved by his family, friends and just about anyone that gets to know him. Brian was assaulted July 19, 2009 in an unprovoked attack. He sustained a severe brain injury that left him blind and paralyzed on his left side. After three months in intensive care and seven months in rehabilitation, he was able to move back to Ireland and now lives at Clare Castle, a rehabilitation facility in Ennis, near his parents’ home in Limerick. There is hope for Brian, but treatment will involve experimental and very expensive stem cell therapy. Brian was accepted for treatment by Beike Biotech in Beijing, China thanks to donations and this week heads to China for surgery at a cost of €50,000. The need doesn’t end there, though. He will continue to need care and support even after the treatment. Of course there are no guarantees as to results or how much functionality Brian will regain. That’s why donations continue to remain vitally important to this wonderful man and his devoted family! You are an integral part of Brian’s future!
