Thank you for visiting Stevie's fundraising page!
Donating to the Down Syndrome Assoc of Middle Tennessee through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support Stevie's fundraising efforts.
This is our 7th year to participate in the Down Syndrome Buddy Walk. Although, we were unable to have any fundraisers this year Stevie and I will walk and raise donations. We have started very late this year, we only have 2 weeks left until the Walk, but you can still sponsor Stevie by making a donation here at this website.
Stevie turned 9 years old on August 31. It is hard to believe that 9 years ago we were sitting at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. Stevie has been through a lot in 9 years. Sometimes I forget that he was 2 days old when he had his first surgery. Staying at the hospital, waiting for any improvement, wondering when we would be able to go home. Scared he might not make it. The hardest thing I have ever had to do is take him back to the hospital when he was 6 months old for his open heart surgery. We didn't know if he would come home. He has had numberous hospital stays through the years, but we have always made it back home. He is a fighter, my little guy. He has had 2 years of good health. WooHoo!!
Stevie is having another good year at school and is learning math and to read . He gets along with the other children and splits his time between CDC and a typical classroom.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too! We sure could use the extra help this year
Diane and Stevie
