Isaac had a wonderful transplant anniversary/birthday celebration!!! We really want to thank everyone who donated and those who were able to come out! That weekend brought our first rain in months, and lucky us it rained at night and then we had cooler days with nice big puffy clouds and sunshine. The park was a perfect size and set up. We had a fenced in athletic field behind us, a playground on one side and plenty of open grass. We also had a decent size tree from which to hang our Tiki Pinata which was quite a “Hit” and spilled toys and a little candy with appropriate coaxing.
Isaac wore his Halloween costume. He was dressed as a surfer. Originally he would’ve worn shorts, slippahs and an aloha shirt to go with his jeep and surfboard that fit so nicely on his wheelchair, but a surfer knows how to wear a hoodie and jeans on a cooler day!
Isaac had lots of friends come to help sing “Happy Birthday” and eat some cake but first they were treated to sound healing with Cat and her crystal bowls that resonated deep in your chest. Everyone could see which bowls Isaac liked over some of the other options. Isaac’s chiropractor Dr. Steve, his Ana Baniel Method therapist Margie Murnan and his teacher Mrs. Gay made it out too. We also got to visit with Gavin Marquez and his family for a little while too. Gavin is also bravely battling Tay-Sachs and he celebrated his 9th birthday this week! He is fighting the juvenile form of Tay-Sachs and his parents are hard at work keeping him strong! He looked so good and he seemed to enjoy some sound healing and aromatherapy too!
Thank you for your donations: Ageless and Beautiful, Flying Panther Tattoos, Dr. Steve Tullis, Margie Murnan, Bonny Rivera, Mr. and Mrs. Beasley, Mr. and Mrs. Camara, Stuart Ganz, secret cake maker and the Cure Tay-Sachs Foundation for helping us acquire autographed Charger’s memorabilia.
These donations and your generousity raised $3,000 towards Isaac’s therapy and healing expenses. We believe strongly in the mission of the Cure Tay-Sachs Foundation and sent 20% of Isaac’s celebration to them as we know one day, Tay-Sachs will not be a death sentence because the research was funded.
