My daughter, Heidi Marie, was born December 20, 2008. Unfortunately there were some complications at birth which eventually resulted in the diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy. Heidi has brightened my life and makes it infinitely better every day. She is such a happy child and does not let her disability stop her from accomplishing anything. She is so strong and has inspired me to take on the challenges I face with a positive attitude. Heidi is always optimistic in everything she does, and any mistakes she makes are turned into lessons for her to apply the next time she tries something new or difficult. Any time Heidi falls, she stands right back up ready to walk again. I am so proud to be her mom and feel lucky to get to say she is my daughter. Everyone at her school tells me how much Heidi brightens up their days. When I hear those comments I can't help but smile. She is warmhearted, optimistic and never gives up! Her constant determination helps her to find her own way to deal with the physical challenges that her diagnosis presents her with. I learn so much from her every day and any success I have in life I owe to her. She has taught me to stay motivated and confident in any situation and to learn lessons from my mistakes because they will only make me stronger in the end. The point of Fundraiser Heidi is to ensure money and time is spent on helping children with CP to live happy and healthy lives. Donations will be given to local hospitals and organizations specializing in Cerebral Palsy and used to help fund events that will help create awareness and gain a large support system so that as many children and families as possible get the help they need.
