Kayla is 4 years old and living with spinal muscular atrophy. this is a neuromuscular disorder that affects all of kayla muscles but her mind is that of a sharp bright 4 year old who loves to go go go. we are hoping to raise enough money to buy a modified van that kayla will be able to drive in and out of with her power chair.

I wanted to share with everyone some good news about kaylas mobility. Some of you know that the children of our church put on Kayla's Gala a few weeks ago to help us raise money for a Van. they raised $4,800 I believe. It was a great night filled with a silent Auction, food and entertainment. We Also recieved a very blessed surprise that our Church community wanted to help us even more by making up the rest to get us to our Goal! We could not be more humbly Grateful for this help and we are excited to say we have just started the process of looking into a van that will fit all our needs. This process may take a little while as we are looking for that something special that we have waited so long for. I can tell you Im so excited for the day that i can load Kayla up in the van to make a quick trip to the store or the park and not have it be an all day event. We are so thankful to all of you who have helped us get to this point, we really could not have done this without you. I will keep you all updated on our findings as we go.


THANK YOU

As summer is approaching we are hoping to enjoy all the things that come with summer, Birthday parties, softball games and family outings. Loading and unloading all of Kaylas stuff has become a big part of this and it is the least fun. Now that we have kayla's stroller we take that with us to so when kayla gets to tired she can switch over, our van is loaded to the max with 2 chairs and 2 kids and all the other stuff that goes with. thank you to all of you who have donated or shared, please continue to do so we would love the freedom of a van that fits our needs.

Thank you all.
