BENEFITING: Tammy Lynn Memorial Foundation, Inc.
At Tammy Lynn Center we focus on ability rather than disability. Forty-five years, and we continue to provide hope and opportunities for children and adults with developmental disabilities to live, learn and grow to their fullest potential. I became involved with the Tammy Lynn Center shortly after moving to the Raleigh area in 2008. Early in my life an amazing woman fought hard to get the care needed for her son so she would not have to institutionalize him. These were in the days when there were few, if any, options. And this amazing woman succeeded because she would not give up. Tammy Lynn Center was founded on the same belief - that all children should have the same rights and freedoms - the freedom to learn, the freedom to play, the freedom to have a happy life. Why give? Because I said so? No. Because over 400 families rely on Tammy Lynn Center for continual care for their loved ones with disabilities. Tammy Lynn Center serves children and adults who were born with disabilities. They also work with families whose loved ones have been severely injured through accidents. We are all a heartbeat away from needing the services of Tammy Lynn Center. I am asking everyone receiving this message from me to donate $10. Feel free to donate more! None of us will miss $10, and it WILL make an impact if every one of us participates. For me that is 2 lattes at Starbucks, so if you can find it in you to help me with this fundraiser for Tammy Lynn Center - I will love you a latte!
