Angie is 3 years old and recovering from brain surgery to correct life-threatening seizures. During therapy, she fell in love with the adapted tricycle used for strength building and improved coordination. In fact, she loved it so much that her family reached out to CCA’s LifeSupport Family Enrichment staff to help provide one at home. Of course we jumped at the opportunity and offered Angie her very own adapted tricycle to continue her therapy, and fun, at home!
Angie’s mom, Kara, shared that “having the tricycle allows Angie to have a typical childhood experience and she loves it! Thank you so much for making a difference in her life.”
It's always fun to watch the progression of a long-term Chemo Pal match, and this week we did just that. Jacob and his 3+ year Chemo Pal, Ryland Stucke, celebrated the end of treatment, but definitely not the end to their close friendship. Thank you to our dedicated group of Chemo Pal mentors and to supporters like you who continue to make this program possible!
Eleven-year-old Isabella marches to the beat of her own drum—that is until Music Rx steps into the room. For the past 6 weeks, the Music Rx team has been offering Isabella private guitar lessons—a dream come true! Her natural sense of rhythm has accentuated her ability to succeed on the strings. Most recently, Isabella and music therapist Keeley rocked out to Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez. Isabella says she’d be happy to be re-admitted into the hospital so the two could “sing together again.” A true testament to the power of Music Rx and the impact your donations have on children like Isabella!
