Hey bloggers, I want to tell what happened to me and TJ (my aide). On Saturday November 4th 2017, we went to an event called Firs Annual Purple and Green Gala. It was an event for all kind of disabilities from CP to all kinds of disabilities. Here is a little background of the foundation. The Purple and Green Gala is an annual event that will raise money for Our Children’s Story, a non-profit organization geared to assist families with finding resources for the special needs loved one. This organization is striving to make a significant impact and bridge gaps that are being neglected. Families are suffering, having to choose between rent and medical. Losing their jobs, not having access to resources that are out there. Building a stronger, more independent community. Educating families and building confidence.

While we were there we met a State Congressman and his wife that were very Impressed with me and my Accent: how well I used It. He wants me to come to his office and speak more about my condition and talk about a drug that might help my movements calm down. This is why I like getting out and meeting people because as the older I get my disability worse and worser. And I will have this until I die. I went to this event because it was for all kind of disability people. Normal people can help by getting more knowledge of what a disability is because not one disability is the same, each one is different and there are millions of disability out there.
