Naomi's Hope

This is a bead that I recently sold at auction, with the proceeds of the sale donated to a Charity - Naomi's Hope. The bead was named for Naomi, a little girl who was born in February of 2008 with a minor heart problem. At the age of three days old she was scheduled to undergo a minor procedure, and during the preparation with anesthesia, her heart stopped beating. It took them over 30 minutes to revive Naomi.

As a result of her heart not beating for that long period of time, with no blood or oxygen getting to her organs, she suffered brain damage and organ damage.

We, Naomi's family, are trying to raise money to get Naomi into Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) treatments. We have investigated this and have learned that they are using it to treat persons with traumatic brain injuries and autism, and it is having profound affects of healing.
