Hi Everyone I know someone that is in need of a power wheelchair so if anyone has one please let me know thanks
Hi everyone, When a family receives any kind of devastating diagnosis the first thing they need more is support to know that they are not alone in this world. The doctor visits and hospital stays must take an incredible toll on the baby and the entire family. Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed though. The Linzer family did just that, they lived every moment with Quinn. Many times wit's a diagnosis, we think of all the things our loved ones can't do or won't be able to experience. However, The Quinn Madeleine Foundation helps families to look at it from a whole different perspective. They made every day a cherished memory that they can hold onto forvever. They gave their baby every opportunity to just have every experience she could. Please help other families in similar situations to also have that same support, strength and courage. I will be taking part in The Quinn Madeleine Foundation's 5k on May 19th. Niemann-Pick Disease Type A is a rare disease that cuts extremely young babies, lives short. After reading about the Linzer family and their experiences, I want to help them give others courage and strength to live each day to the fullest, take every chance to go out and do something good for themselves. Please check out about this organize, read the family's blog like I did, realize there are others who are in similar situations and give what you can to help those in need. No amount is ever too small. Help this family be there for others and to give them all the support possible. Thank you!
