THANK YOU FOR VISITING MY FUNDRAISING PAGE!
Giving Back & Paying it Forward
What a year this has been. Most of you visiting this page have also been following Mark's story through our Caring Bridge site. While you might think 2019 will be a year to forget, it will always be a year to remember the outpouring of love you have showered our family with. We have withstood the trials put in our path because you were there to support us.
Now I am asking you to help us help us support others. We are a community and together we can do a lot of good. Craig Hospital is a beacon of light for those going through the darkness that a spinal cord injury or a traumatic brain injury brings. It is a private, non-profit organization that relies upon donations to help people like Mark achieve the best possible outcome after a life-altering event. Craig is much more than physical and occupational therapy - both vitally important, but insurance covers these needs. In order for a patient to return home feeling empowered, they also require vital therapy that insurance doesn't cover; programs vital to patients' health and independence over a lifetime. The programs include The PEAK Center for adaptive health and wellness, Therapeutic Recreation, Music Therapy, Community Reintegration, Assistive Technology, Adaptive Driving, the school program, and more.
Mark has participated in some of these programs and hopefully will continue to benefit from them in the future. When he goes back to Craig in November for his 6 month evaluation, he hopes to participate in the Adaptive Driving program. More than likely, another patient is checking into Craig this week with a traumatic injury and they are frightened. We want them to receive the same world class care that Mark did.
So if you have wanted to find a way to help Mark and our family, here is your chance. Please help us give something back to Craig for all that it has given to us. When we entered the front door of the hospital the afternoon of February 11th, we joined the Craig Family, and we will forever be grateful.
