hello everyone. My name is Malen. That picture is of me at the high school where I am a cheerleader for the basketball team. I love cheering along with my other special needs friends. The coach set up a special squad just for us. My friend Donna is again asking for your help to support the programs of FRA, many of which enabled me to be able to join this cheering squad. FRA works with people of all ages who have special needs---they provide therapies we need, help for our siblings and parents, teach us how to use the computer, give us "Independent Living Skills", run lots of fun programs like dancing and karate. They make a lifetime commitment to us. I am now 18 (can you believe that??) and I still go to FRA programs every week. Please try to come to our Color Me Belmar day at the Belmar boardwalk. This year the Belmar Seafood Festival starts right after we are done so there is lots to see and eat all day long. Thank you for helping FRA and me for all these years.
