I HAVE A VAN!!! THANK YOU! Everyone that donated their time, prayers, and money to help make this possible. I am so grateful for all those that have helped make this possible. I feel so humbled and blessed that I can now go places independently. Because of this van, I can go places independently. I can also go to work as a Special Education Teacher at Summit Academy and continue to do what I love, teach students. Feel free to share the video.

My trip home to Springfield, Louisiana has been such an amazing experience! Our small town really came together to love and support me and my family. We were able to sell over 600 plates of pastalaya and jambalaya. I have enjoyed visiting with family and friends, and I have been completely overwhelmed by their thoughtfulness and generosity. We were able to raise a little over $10,000 in 1 day!

Your story definitely touched my heart. Although this is not a huge donation I know it will be met with gratitude. I wanted to thank you for being who you are. My daughter wants to be a special needs teacher and you seem to be an extremely good one and a great example for her. Thank you for continuing your fight to heal and your fight to continue teaching. Your example will impact so many in such a positive way. I pray you get a van donated by a local dealer and that this money can be used for whatever your medical needs are. Much respect for you.
