Fridays with FAITH: Thanks to YOU, maCares Service Dog Teams & Their Families Can Enjoy Life!
Hello my FAITH-ful readers! I hope you’ve enjoyed a relaxing summer! Ready for some service dog team updates?! You already know that service dogs, like me, make a big difference in the lives of others by promoting independence and introducing the ability to live again. Add the help of ‘paw-some’ maCares supporters, like YOU, helping to sponsor the daily care costs of their service dog – and it really allows our hoomans to enjoy life! What a big difference!!!! Check out some of the ways our hoomans have been enjoying life.
After earning her Graduate Degree, Brittany (& GRIFFIN) competed in the Ms. Wheelchair USA pageant In Ohio, representing as Ms. Wheelchair North Carolina! Brittany has pushed past her pain and fear to accomplish her dreams to make the best out of every day. “My pain is driving me to be who I want to be”. She wowed judges with her inner and outer beauty as well as with her platform of ‘Tassels Without Barriers’ – which promotes universal access on educational campuses in order to increase accessibility, allowing students to define themselves through their capabilities, not their diagnoses. Brittany was crowned Most Photogenic and Ms. Wheelchair USA!!!!
Six-year-old, Harrison went on an amazing adventure to Camp Victory Junction in Randleman, NC and had such an incredible experience! He was over the moon from this priceless experience! Camp Victory Junction allows children with serious illnesses a chance to be kids – playing, imagining, making friends, and enjoying the adventures and experience of camp life while having life-changing camping experiences, at no cost to children or their families. This dream was made possible by Market America’s own Marc Ashley, Brandi Ashley Quinn, Patricia Cote, and Victory Junction Ambassador, Cathy Davis.
Dustin’s daughters, Anika & Cecilee, have been busy! Anika competed in a Classic Bowling Tournament and her team placed 1st!! She also earned an award for a High Handicap Girls. Younger sister, Cecilee, earned an award for Bumper Buddies and she also earned her 2nd degree yellow belt in karate. The proud parents are enjoying watching their girls enjoy life!
