The Hitman & Heather

 


Will you help Jayden?

Hitman and I plan to have lots o' fun at the Blarney Breakfast Thursday morning at Old Chicago East (Kellogg & Rock from 6-9:30 am). I just wanted to write a quick blog to let you know about the important cause we're supporting -- the Rainbows United Charitable Foundation. Supporting is as easy as texting RAINBOWS to 85944 Rainbows United helps children with special needs from birth to age 21. If you've ever known a special needs kid like I have, you know how expensive every service is. You also know how vital to their well-being these important services are. It's heartbreaking to see a parent who can't afford to provide their child with the care they need. Due to the costs of care for these special kids, that's nearly every parent of a child with special needs. Let's help Jayden! Jayden is a 13-year-old girl with Rett Syndrome. This disorder of the nervous system causes developmental reversals. Imagine your toddler has learned to speak and has the use of many words. You'd be a proud and ecstatic parent! But then imagine your horror and fear one day when your toddler loses all of those words.  You don't understand how or why. Rett Syndrome causes developmental reversals in expressive language and hand use like this. You can learn more about it here. What Jayden Needs Jayden needs a piece of equipment called a "stander." Having a stander at home will give her a chance to enjoy greater independence and mobility since she is wheelchair-bound. April Denton, Jayden's Targeted Case Manager, says, "The physical act of standing provides many benefits to disabled children such as improving bone density, pulmonary and digestive functions, as well as prolonging stretching for tight muscles in the hips, ankles, and bones." Doesn't that make you want to help Jayden right now? Supporting is as easy as texting RAINBOWS to 85944
Come out and have breakfast with us Thursday morning for this great cause. Tickets are available at the door for adults at $12 and $5 for kids. Chris Cakes will be flippin' the pancakes and there will be my favorite thing in the world -- bottomless coffee! Come have a cup with me and we'll all help Jayden together.
Thank you for your support.
~Heather
