As a family we had a goal to travel to Florida, in our new accessible van. That goal was met 1 year after receiving our van from Chive Chive Charities. We all enjoyed Universal Studios and Alyssa and I even met up with fellow Chive recipients Tyree and his mother Cassie. Unfortunately the trip involved an unplanned 2 week hospitalization for Alyssa due to the flu. Her dad & siblings flew back to home, while Alyssa recuperated at a local Children’s Hospital.
The last nine months have brought on an additional two hospitalizations for back surgery & five for respiratory illnesses. In between Alyssa has been out and about to the beach, chillin’ at the pool, visiting museums and historic sites like Valley Forge.
Through Gods grace, support from family, our friends and the Chive community Alyssa remains strong in spirit and body.
