A Glimpse Into the Past

Here is a little glimpse into David's past. Sometimes it's hard to remember that David could walk just a few years ago. I've tried over and over to get the text to line up with the pictures but I can't figure it out. So I'm just going to say that these are pictures mostly starting from middle school. They are pictures of David at Special Olympics events, dancing at Camp Smile with his friend Sarah, swimming without a life-jacket, being the king at his birthday, standing with Hannah, at Clearwater Beach with Grandma, riding a horse at his cousin's house, and at Hannah's high school graduation reception in 2006.

Waiting it out.

Hello friends,

We are just waiting it out until Oct. 13 when David begins this whole process with the pre-op appointment. In the meantime, he has received some very sweet cards, seen movies on brain surgery, watching intently, and remained his sweet, content, and ornery self.

Here is a great article I just ran across that gives some good insight into Dystonia and the surgery.
Please read it and pass it on to others so Dystonia can become a household word and a cure will be that much closer!

Thank you so much!

A Beautiful Video

Hello friends!

I just received this link to a wonderful video that will let you peek into the window of Dystonia.
Please watch it and share it with others. The more we share things like this, the more people will know about and understand Dystonia. The more people understand, the more they will do everything they can to help find a cure.
