BENEFITING: LUCKY FIN PROJECT
This year I will be giving up my birthday for charity and I have picked a non-profit very close to my heart. As many of you know, my son was born missing his left hand and forearm. In 2010 and also being a new parent, I was not only scared but I felt alone. The Lucky fin project helped me rationalize my thoughts and also brought me closer to other families with children just like my own. They are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that exists to raise awareness and celebrate children and individuals born with symbrachydactyly or other limb differences. What they Do: *Creates a support network for parents across the U.S. and around the world. *Links parents to medical information and resources. *Provides education on limb differences. *Financially support efforts for children attend specialized camps, obtain prosthetics, and to fund other organizations within the limb different community.
