A Huge Thank You To Ambucs!

What a week! In addition to the many generous donations to GirlPower2Cure this week (thanks so much to all of you!) we got a phone call on Friday from AMBUCS! AMBUCS is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating mobility and independence for people with disabilities. They do this through various forms of community service, scholarships and with the AmTryke! So Mr. Bob Silver, from the local Irving Chapter called on Friday to let us know that Juliana's AmTryke was ready. He delivered it this afternoon and I think Juliana's face will speak for itself. We had talked to her about it for days, and let me tell you when Mr. Silver arrived, she knew exactly what was going on!

Here she is putting on the helmet:

Here we are getting her all buckled up!

Ready or not, here she comes!
Here is Mr. Silver giving Juliana her first test drive, unfortunately it had to be indoors because the rain never stopped all day!Here is Mr. Silver pointing out all the great features of her new ride!

I love my new AmTryke! I am so excited!

Here is Livi, trying to butter up Mr. Silver for a Tryke of her own. Don't worry Livi, Mr. Silver is going to get you a tandem seat to ride with your sister.
Thank you so much Mr. Silver from the Irving Chapter of AMBUCS! Look how happy you have made our beautiful little girl!
What an unbelievable week! We've been blessed by so many and words cannot express how deeply thankful we are to each and everyone of our friends and family.
Please take some time and visit the AMBUCS website and discover all the wonderful things this great organization does for so many communities. We encourage you if you can to make a donation to this worthy cause.
Stay tuned for more great things to come!
