EVENT DATE: May 31, 2014
We need to build an Angel’s path. A special way for a special person…
My sister-in-law, Chrissy, has Rett Syndrome (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rett_syndrome) is non-verbal and is confined to a wheel chair. She lives in a home, provided by Participation House Support Services, London Area (http://participationhouse.com/), with three other women who are also confined to wheelchairs and are non-verbal.
But they are more than people with special challenges. Chrissy is more than a person with special challenges.
Chrissy is an Angel who blesses all who know her. She shows with sparkling eyes and a contagious smile what she can’t say.
Chrissy loves being outside. The back yard of her house has become “Chrissy’s Garden” because she and my Mother-in-law work long and joy-filled hours there. She would love to access the whole yard but the sidewalk is not complete.
We have consulted a gardening expert and a contractor. We have a plan and a quote: the house needs $10,000 to complete the sidewalk extension. We would like to have the funds by May 2014.
I am raising funds to donate to complete the side walk so Chrissy and her house-mates can enjoy the beautiful flowers, sounds of nature, changes of seasons… things that bring a sparkle to Chrissy’s eyes and a smile that lights our hearts.
