Dear Friends, Family and Community,
On Feb. 27, 2012, Amy Clabaugh suffered a severe traumatic brain injury when she fell from a ladder, hitting her head on a concrete floor. Amy has been receiving intense therapies since that time.

Amy and I are once again overwhelmed with the love and generosity that was shown to us on and around Giving Tuesday. Amy continues to improve and get stronger with the many different therapies she participates in. All of her therapists are seeing the positive changes across the board, physically and cognitively.
These are the words Amy wrote and I posted on her facebook page. (unfortunately I am unable to post the same photo on this page)
Thank you for your donations. I am fortunate to have caring and generous friends in my life.

Thanks to you. our house is outfitted with a lift that allows Amy to get in and out of the house and a handicap accessible bathroom. Many of you also donated sweat to our workday where we cleaned, built a fence for the dogs, cut, drug and loaded brush, built steps, replaced rotten boards, etc.,etc., etc. It was hard work, but it was also a joy to be a part of such a worthwhile project. We have settled in and are enjoying being near the lake again.
Amy still attends speech, physical and occupational therapy and is working hard to meet her goals of being able to walk independently again, speak clearly and improve her fine motor skills.
Recently, she has tried two alternative therapies, acupuncture and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Following hyperbaric, she has seen improvements in long and short term memory, swallowing, energy, sleep and processing speed of speech and cognitive abilities. She is also seeing improvement in bladder control and spasticity in her left leg from acupuncture.
You can donate anytime at www.helphopelive.org/campaign.8899, but if you pay by credit card on Giving Tuesday the 7% fee will be waived.
Thank you for your continued support and love!
