Lisa worked really hard to make this event happen her sweet little girl Emily walks now because of CME physiotherapy and her Mom's determination to stop at nothing to enable her daughter. Lisa is a true warrior mama, she fantastic and knows how to make things happen. Lisa made it her mission to ensure other parents in our area are aware that this amazing therapy exists. Today's information fair happened because of her. Lisa you go girl!
Heather is a friend, neighbour and best of all blogging buddy. Her son Zackie is doing amazing things he also has a dream team that Heather put together. Today he was walking around the room with just a little help and eating food which is no small thing for this little boy. Be sure to visit Heather's blog, she is so honest about their struggles and triumphs, you will be hooked in no time. She's also new to blogging so I'm sure she would love a few new followers especially other mom's that rock you know who you are.

Here we are just before the ribbon cutting,
Oh and if any of you Moms out there have worries about whether your child will walk or sit up. This princess Vanessa was unable to sit up at 3 and look at her now. It's incredible the gains she has made in the last year. She's amazing at one hand walking. She also does CME physiotherapy. She is eating now too and wasn't doing that last year. There is nothing stopping this girl either. She is also Ashley's pal and pretty darn cute.
It was great to see everything that is available locally for Ashley, camps, riding, swimming, respite, gym programs, funding there was so many organizations present. I have a big bag of brochures now to read through.
The best thing I learned today was Ashley can play special needs soccer at a funded summer camp. It's a morning program from 9 until 12 there are aids for all the kids. Mommy has to stay and watch but Taylor can come along there are balls and other siblings that he can play with there. I'm so excited about this.
More Mom's that rock and good friends.
Thanks to Children's Treatment Network for the great event.
