Throwback Thursday's

I have a daughter with cerebral palsy, if you don't know what that is, the definition is a disorder that affects muscle tone, movement, and motor skills (the ability to move in a coordinated and purposeful way). CP usually is caused by brain damage that happens before or during a baby's birth, or during the first 3 to 5 years of a child's life.  She was born at 26 weeks, had a tracheotomy when she was only 3 months old.  Now she is 5, just started kindergarten and the trach is gone, she is doing well, but with age she is growing, and with school, she needs to be more mobile.  The therapist is talking about updating her wheelchair which is small manual chair, to a motorized chair so she is not wore out at school just trying to get around.   

That leads us to our next big challenge.  We will need to get a wheelchair lift van, and we found out fast, they are not cheap.  the price to get one is around the 70 to 80 thousand dollar mark, that is to get a new one. even good used ones that are 8 years old go for around $50,000.  That is about the price of a new Corvette.   

Me and my wife are saving as much as we possibly can, but we need help so we started a gofundme page https://www.gofundme.com/2jf28tq4 , labor day I am doing a fundraising stream with fellow streamers http://www.twitch.tv/douglie007 and best of all my friend that owns Arcade Legacy is helping with a fundraising night on September 10th at the store ( so if you are in the Cincinnati area you can come ) here is the link to the event page if you need the address . http://tinyurl.com/jqqaqkc.

At the fundraiser we will have a Saturn Bomberman tournament plus other tournaments.  if you would like to make suggestions for some good tournies I have a poll on event page.

Chipped in a little, too bad I don't live closer.  God Bless and PM me if there's anything I can do to help! Smiley
