Ralph Oats and Wellness International Network recently embraced a young Dutch girl, who was diagnosed with meningitis and needed hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Shortly after learning of Kelly's needs, Wellness International Network helped fund her recovery, raising more than $83,000 and enabling Kelly to come to the United States for treatment. "This is pretty incredible," says Paul, a Wellness International Network distributor who spearheaded the Help Kelly Foundation. "She's our Wellness International Network child. I know she will continue to have great results with the combination of this therapy and WINOmeg3complex™." Since receiving oxygen therapy, Kelly has been able to hold her head up better and many of her emotional responses have returned. Most notably, the return of her laughter has overjoyed her parents and brightened their daily lives.
