Watch Bay News 9 and the Ledger for a heartwarming story about one of our speech and audiology patients, Christopher! Bay News 9 sent out Rick Elmhorst and The Ledger sent Gary White. Both came with photographers and spent quite a bit of time here at the Center. They observed Danielle and Christopher in therapy and then watched him be elated with his gifts. This has truly been a community project. Christopher’s guardian, his Aunt, has fought to get him medical care and the other services he needs.
It truly is wonderful to see that the Center was the nexus to bring all this together – the Center assisted with gas money so they can come from Frostproof for therapy, one of our Board Members donated the money to purchase an iPad mini with the app he needed to communicate and a waterproof case, toys were provided by Lakeland Margarita Society, and team members from the Center purchased a bike for him.
This is a shining example of what happens at the Center. The more people that are aware of what we do, and come for services or make contributions, the more people’s lives will be changed!
Thank you for your efforts and support!
