Texas HBOT Bill

Concerning making Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy available to Texas Veterans, this is a day of very encouraging activity.
As of this morning, Monday, November 10, 2014, HB175 was introduced in the Texas House of Representatives by Rep. Tim Kleinschmidt. The Text of this is attached. As I understand it, the next step is for it to be assigned to a Committee. I have no timetable for this at this time. I’m also working with Rep. Kleinschmidt to get it introduced (effectively simultaneously) in the Texas Senate. I do not have a name yet, but I’ll let you know as soon as this happens.
As I’m sure you know, once a Bill is introduced, it will likely get assigned to a House Committee. I have no idea which that will be but I would image it will go to either the House Defense and Veterans Affairs Committee and/or the Human Services Committee.
In either or both cases, I suspect there will be Committee Hearings and Testimony. I would hope that you and your State Senators and/or Representatives will give this Bill their Support. I’ll try to keep you updated as this takes place.
At any rate, the first step in the Legislative process has taken place. Now begins the long Marathon to get it to the Governor and signed.
Your help and that of your Court and State Representatives and Senators will be vital.

Patriot Clinic for HBOT Treatments
On Monday we understand, an elderly man went to a bank with a Christmas paper bag, which we have, and a hand written note. There was cash in the bag. The note read:
An anonymous donation of $25,000.00 for the Patriot Clinic for the treatment of P.T.S.D.
I find it unacceptable that a cure is available - yet not available because of shortage of funds.
We the people have to step up.
We all know war is hell
But coming home should not be

Sincerely an anonymous old Veteran

The Bank would not take the money. They sent him to the Newspaper. The News Paper called the VFW. The VFW gave the donation to the Hugs Project on the Patriot Clinic’s behalf.
The man has made it possible for us to pay on our oxygen bill, our lease payment and a down payment on our chamber. We will be open for a few more months.
We have done 3,200 treatments since January 15th in a 2 person multiplace. We now have 13 people who have volunteered at the clinic to do everything from treatments to laundry to the scheduling and medical records, to helping us to provide computerized cognitive rehabilitation. Even our physician is a volunteer.
We will have the bag and the hand written note at HBOT2014. There have been a lot of small donations that have come in that have helped. Many prayers have been said and it is clear they are being answered. Momentum is increasing. Thank you all for your contributions to the work we are seeing begin to role across this nation.
