Sarah needs our help.
Felicia here- Sarah’s younger sister. Sarah has had seizures since as long as I can remember. These uncontrolled seizures have left my older sister unable to walk or talk. Myself and my family have taken it upon ourselves to be her eyes, ears and mouth for Sarah. My mother, Carol, takes care of Sarah full time at our home in Beverly, MA.
I’ve been active my whole life and thought if I can run races on my own, I can certainly run races with my sister… and for a good cause. Just because she can’t run herself, doesn’t mean she shouldn’t experience the thrill of a road race. I have two legs that can help run for Sarah.
To help with the financial burden of Sarah’s medical expenses, a fundraising campaign in Sarah’s honor has been established with Help Hope Live, a trusted nonprofit organization that has been providing community-based fundraising guidance to patients and their families for more than 30 years. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law, are held by Help Hope Live in the Northeast Catastrophic Illness Fund, and are administered by Help Hope Live for illness-related expenses only. Please consider a contribution and click the DONATE NOW button.

The premiere of “Grampa’s Future” was an ‘award winning’ success (yes, the director was given a shining golden statue), but beyond that the love, support and dedication to the goal of raising money for a wheelchair van for Sarah Carr was incredible. By combining the life of Charlie Amore with the recognition of his granddaughter, Sarah, the day wove together joy, the concept of family and the importance of community. The past, present and future came together yesterday bringing transformation through the impact of a story that “many knew how it began but fewer knew how it ended.”

March 20th, THIS SUNDAY!! We are readying for the premiere of “Grampa’s Future.” Along with the documentary we will be starting off with a short titled “What Gets Us Through” by Mel Powsner.

The flyer is up for the next fundraiser! Please consider attending this event not only supporting our wheelchair campaign but getting a look inside the life of Sarah’s grampa, Charlie Amore. Grampa’s family meant everything to him and Sarah was a lucky and blessed girl to have him for a grandfather. His love lives on in this documentary.
