The Daily Herald and Now I Can

Remember that yard sale we had in August?  The one that took all summer to prepare for?  Well, we’ve made it through our three weeks at Now I Can.  And today The Daily Herald and Now I Can have teamed up to share our story.

I am so thankful for everyone who made this experience possible for our Brave Hero.  I appreciate not just your generosity, but you belief in Parker and our family.  We will continue to do our best to provide Parker with the tools to become the best he can be.

It is really a miraculous place to work,” said Chalk. “You get to see miracles for the kids in such a short amount of time. It takes longer for the pathways in their brains to learn. We might take 50 repetitions to learn something [physical], but for them it takes hundreds. In therapy we do the same things over and over so their brain has that repetition to learn from. We’ve had some kids come in not able to walk, and they walk out.”

And to my Troll,  the woman who loves nothing more than to spread hate and discontent as far as she can reach, this is the result of what you call my ‘scamming.’  The ability for my child to be able to ride a bike and walk up AND down the stairs.

Nice try Nancy.   Nice try.
