I would like to share what the Carnival of Care has meant to my family. My youngest daughter was hit by a car at the age of 4 ½, back in 2003. She has and is still, working hard on physical therapy. Our lives were turned upside that December of 2003. Since then, our family schedule centers around caring for her needs.
Carnival of Care offers many things to our family. First, it is one day of fun for us to spend with people of all ages who are recovering from a traumatic brain injury. The kids get to play games and share their story with other families. Secondly, we notice that we are very grateful because her injuries could have been much more severe as with other survivors. Thirdly, my husband and I get pampered for a little while with a massage or just to relax and let Amanda go and play the games. Lastly, I like talking with many different kinds of services and providers whose main focus is to help survivors with traumatic brain injuries. I can stay up to date on things developing or services possible to help my daughter.
Thank you for helping such a great organization.
