Great News and a Request

Holly took her first steps on Friday! She admits that she was scared to death- but, she had her husband and PT right there to support her.
Graceyn has also taken steps, but has yet to feel anything. The PTs are teaching her to use her upper body to move her legs. She will come home this Friday, but will return to PA to learn how to put on and use her new braces. These braces will teach her how to walk! AMEN! PRAISE JESUS!

Lane asks for prayer. Insurance does not cover an additional machine that Graceyn needs. This machine will velcro to her upper body and support her upper body while she exercises to move her lower body. It's miraculous what she can do.... even though she can't feel her legs! Thanks be to You Jesus, what we can't even conceive of, YOU can DO!

Hi. My name is Shelly Nettles Nicholas and Holly and I were best friends in high school. I moved to the Nashville area almost two years ago now and only found out yesterday about all this when we were down visiting family and I am devastated. I haven't seen Holly in about 7 years, but I would love to send her a letter and offer any help I can. I found a Pelahatchie address, but am reading Brandon in the paper-so I just want to make sure the address I found is right. My email address dawnsia@hotmail.com my home number is 615-355-9759 and my cell number is 615-796-5810 I would love to hear from Holly. Please tell her that I miss her and I am going to do all I can to help.

I heard on the radio today that United Health Care has a children's fund. It is a non-profit part of the company that gives grants to families with children who have medical needs that are not covered by insurance. The website is www.uhccf.org . It may be worth checking out.

Hi, my name is Ashley. I am from Brandon,MS. I came across your website some how at work. I read about your family and the injuries to your wife and daughter. I cant imagine what your family is going through, But I do know of a girl that was told she would never walk again and she is walking great. she has no feeling in her legs but she still is walking and has no problem doing it, letting you know that it can be done. I hope the same happens with your daughter. I will be praying for your family. With love, Ashley
