James's Story

James is a 2 yr. old pediatric stroke survivor. Shortly after James was born alongside his twin brother he suffered a devastating stroke. Approximately 90% of James brain is damaged, leaving him blind, nonverbal, immobile, unable to eat by mouth, and very medically complex.

Not expected to live more than a few days, his parents promised him that if he survived they would do everything they could to help him thrive. He kept his end of the bargain starting a very complex and heartening journey for the Shahryary family. James fights for survival every day and Tom, Paige and Lucas are so proud of
their warrior.

Having spent half of his life hospitalized there's a lot of work to be done! Please help the Shahryary family give James the best quality of life possible.

All of the proceeds will go to James’s Promise and be used for therapy and medical expenses, special needs equipment, and other costs that help James live his best life!
