Save my Brother

Organized by: Kirtan Smith

My brother has been battling his demons and addiction for years. There have been many "bottom of the barrels", times where we have feared for his life. Prescription drugs and alcohol in heavy, heavy doses. If he wasn't so strong, he would likely not have survived. Once again these last few weeks have been a very sad downward spiral for him. So many people have helped him over the years. His heart is gold (even if he can be tyrannical on Facebook)- My Mom, my sister Yasoda and I have tried everything we can, to varied amounts of success. Ideally he needs a very long term rehab, detox facility; but he doesn't have the insurance to pay for it, his family does not have the money to do this. A while back I saw an Episode of VICE, where they covered these treatment centers in Mexico that had incredible success rates with Addiction. This is just one option- Here is one of them: Their Program costs about 8,000$ along with the travel costs to get him to San Diego.... Really he needs more than a 7-day Program; and may very likely cost way more than 10,000$ I need to look at other options as well, but I figured best to start trying to raise some money now, before it is too late. Those of you who know him from the Hare Krsna Days, 3 Rivers and Woodlake High School, UCLA, Theta Xi, Law school and since then, please help if you can, and share this message with others. I promise that every single penny raised will go to treatment for him, or be returned to each of you. As the title of this Fundraiser implies we are concerned for his life feel like a drastic measure is needed to save him Thank you, Kirtan 917-675-0671
