To whom it may concern at the Cerebral Palsy Association in Alberta,


I was told once that only special moms get special babies - Kelty Jane MacMillan was born a special baby. At 6 months of age she was diagnosed with Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy. Providing the very best support for a child with special needs requires love, dedication, support, time, attention and - all too often - money.  


In September of last year your charity approved a very generous and much appreciated grant for financial assistance in the amount of $750 to put towards Kelty’s Anat Baniel Method therapy. Because of the financial assistance provided by your charity Kelty was able to see Judith Dack (a very experienced ABM practitioner) in Toronto as well as Carla Romaniuk in Sherwood Park. As a result of Kelty’s time with both Carla and Judith she has made TREMENDOUS GAINS. 


Kelty shows marked improvement with every series of ABM lessons that she receives. Kelty now voluntarily uses her right arm more frequently (her right side has pronounced spasticity). Her limited vocabulary has tripled. She now crawls independently and for the first time two weeks ago she took a few independent steps with only the use of her pediatric walker. 


The money your charity has provided for Kelty’s ABM therapy has been absolutely instrumental in her improvement and is sincerely appreciated by Kelty and ALL THE PEOPLE THAT LOVE HER!


 

Thank you, again, so very much.  

Sincerely,

Kathryn MacMillan
