Dear Friends, Family and Community:

In October of 2013, my husband, Joel Billman suffered a spinal cord injury following a devastating fall while out hiking. He is paralyzed from the waist down & has had spinal fusion surgery. To say the least, this has been a life changing event for the whole family.

As I approach 4 years injured, and 3 years fundraising, I would like to thank all of you that have supported my recovery. My health has gotten worse again. Having a uti infection since August , that 3 batches of antibiotics hasn’t cured completely. Also neck shoulder nerve headaches are pretty bad, but hopefully chiropractic and pressure point massage will help. Thanks for your help.

It was so great to visit and see that your attitude is still so good as you start another chapter in the recovery process. I know it is a huge challenge but just keep chipping away at it, one day at a time. I love you and it did my heart good to see you tackle the stairs at mini golf, lots of fun too. I hope I can make it out again later this year.
