Update from David • Radioactive Eggs!

Eggs

For about 6 months I have been in hibernation mode – other than staying warm and trying not to think about skiing, my mom and I have been going to Massachusetts General Hospital to get my stomach problems figured out. I’ve gotta say they have been doing a great job. Since I have a high level injury my insides don’t move too well and this makes me feel extremely full even when I have not eaten in a while. So, I constantly have stomach pain but now I’m on a new med that will help my insides work better. Yesterday I finished the last test that they needed which involved eating radioactive eggs and taking pictures of my stomach every two hours.👌🏻

Congrats to my mom for not falling asleep while driving since we got up at 3am for this and got home at 7pm!

A Big “THANK YOU” goes out to Debbie Pickering for organizing the event, Jeff Barden of Yankee Lanes for the use of their facilities and Ron & Jennifer Bush for their D.J. & Karaoke services.

I would also like to thank the many individuals, family members, friends, co-workers, local businesses from Keene and the surrounding communities who helped contribute and make this fundraiser a success.

THANK YOU ALL!

Total funds raised so far: $4,500
The Goal: Getting David more mobile by the use of a Tankchair.

So he has a way to go but I know he will get there.

On behalf of David and my family I would like to Thank you all for your continued support. It does make a difference.

Bowling Fundraiser for David on November 15th

Spares

$20 per adult, $10 per child
Free Shoe Rental
Silent Auction

Bowl to help David get out of his house and into the woods! David loves the outdoors, but since the accident four years ago that left him a quadriplegic he hasn’t been able to enjoy what he lives for; snow, fresh air, excitement and adventure! A Trackchair will allow him to get out into the woods, to tackle rough terrain, and to get to the top of the ski area. This would mean the world to him!

Yankee Lanes Bowling Center in Keene – 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on November 15th

If you can’t make it on the 15th, you can still help by making a donation to his Trackchair gofundme campaign – https://www.gofundme.com/me556338

DRIVING = INDEPENDENCE

Many of you know that David is hoping to raise funds for an accessible vehicle equipped so that he can drive it. This is an expensive endeavor, but it will be life changing for David. Driving means independence, freedom and personal satisfaction.

The cost for a vehicle equipped for a quadriplegic is about $60,000. You donated more than $4,000 through last year’s August fundraiser. Thank you! This year’s goal is $10,000, but David can’t do it without your help.

You don’t have to run to help this year (but register early if you are running.) You can register for the 2 mile fitness walk, you can make a donation, and you can even set up your own online fundraising page. You have three friends who would donate $10 each to a good cause, right? We thought so. That’s why we’ve made it easy to set up your own online fundraising page to share with family and friends. Just a few small donations made through your page will make a big difference for David. Give it a try! You have nothing to lose, and David has so much to gain.
