Carson, our December Raindancer, was in a horrible car accident with his mom, Kelly, on June 1, 2015 as they were traveling to get ice cream. Carson was born with cerebral palsy and the car accident left him having to re-learn and rebound…and that he has done! Kelly, who we have just absolutely fallen in love with, now suffers from Traumatic Brain Injury and partial paralysis on the right side of her body. She was in the hospital for 4 months and is now in PT and OT 4 days a week.
We selected Carson and his family to be the recipients of our Christmas Celebration, and thanks to our amazing supporters they were definitely CELEBRATED. Like Greg, Carson’s dad says…this was the Christmas “that almost wasn’t”. Thank you for helping us make this the Christmas that NOT ONLY WAS, but WAS SUPER SPECIAL & AWESOME!! It was such a special, special evening. It started out with 200 carolers that surprised the family with JOYFUL song in front of their house and finished up with family & friends, food & gifts…all while the family enjoyed their very own private concert by LTD Lite. You will definitely want to look through the pictures to see how this amazing evening unfolded.
A huge thank you to all OF YOU who picked an item off of our virtual “angel tree” for the family. WE SHOWERED them with gift cards that will help them out SO SO Much! We were amazed by the response. You all are so awesome.
