...and now a message from our hero!

Why am I going to rappel down a building in my wheelchair?  I've always been a bit of a DAREDEVIL. I have cerebral palsy, use a wheelchair for mobility and speak with a device. I want to show people what I CAN DO.  I also want to help kids like me and to give back to an organization that helped me out so much when I was younger.

When I was a kid, the Easter Seals helped me to buy a number of wheelchairs as I grew out of each one.  What I remember the most was going to an EASTER SEALS CAMP named Lakewood Camp each summer.  I looked forward to it all year and I cried when I had to leave.  I got hang around with other kids like me who accepted me and treated me like I was any other kid.  We sure had a lot of fun together.  I counted down the days until I could see them again each year.  

I have so many UNFORGETTABLE MEMORIES from camp. I swam in the pool, canoed in Lake Erie, camped overnight at a different campground, acted in plays and did many sporting, craft and drama activities.  Evening activities and campfires were always fun.  And I got to dance with so many girl campers and counsellors!  Now camps have white water rafting, an indoor climbing wall and a high ropes challenge course.  I wish they had these when I was a kid! 

Being away from mom and dad at camp helped me to develop INDEPENDENCE, COURAGE to try new things and make LIFELONG friends.  I met my friend Todd at camp in 1987.  He was a counsellor there and we have been friends every since.  We were the best man at each other's weddings.  He is always there for me in the good times and the bad times.  Everyone needs a friendship like that. 

Volunteering at the Easter Seals telethon, I got to talk with many kids and young adults who benefit from support from the Easter Seals.  Parents told me about getting funding help for new wheelchairs, walkers and ramps.  Kids shared their camp memories with me. Young adults spoke of scholarships to attend college and university.  The Easter Seals CHANGES LIVES and helps kids with physical disabilities succeed.

Help me help these kids be kids!

Thank you.
