BENEFITING: EVENT DATE: Nov 22, 2013 DAYS TO GO: 83 You are the Organizer of this Fundraiser THE STORY: “My story” as I am going to express it, has been a life long series of joysand pains of life. I use the term “expression” because seeing life from a wheelchair view, all mylife is more of a vision of expression rather than a normal way of seeing things. As many of youmay or may not know, when I was 3 months old, I was diagnosed with a neuroblastoma tumoron my T 7 spinal cord. As an infant going through the unexpected, I was in the hands of mymother, doctors, nurses, and most of all, the Lord almighty. So I went through with my firstsurgery at 3 months old of removing the unwanted gift that I was born with that left me overallparalyzed from the waist down. My mother always told me, even as an infant she knew that Iwas a determined child, fighting for better health. Over the years, I developed even morecomplications of health risks that required numerous surgeries. Even today, I currently receivea surgical procedure every six months to assist with my under developed bladder. So as I sharein expressing “my story,” the details of words will never be undoubtfull as to the real challengesI’ve had to face. Therefore, I’ve learned how to be strong, be a survivor, live my life unlimitlessas possible, while still dreaming big dreams.Through my years and experience of wheelchair dancing, I have recently joined theWalk and Roll Foundation Dance Team. Through this non-profit organization, I am committedto a team of professional and determined group of individuals that strives to educate, support,and inspire individuals in a disabled capacity. For me personally, I love to inspire others, andthis is what the organization means to me…..inspiration! We cannot operate extensively without donations from caring individuals. . Our first big performance with the whole team is at the San Jose Abilities Expo which is held November 22-24, 2013. We need YOUR help to bring all the girls to San Jose.
