I have received a few emails indicating the change of yard sale date due to the rain on Saturday prohibited some supporters from stopping by Sherman Street to purchase a fleece, share in a coffee, and enjoy a visit with Steven's family.


Although the day was successful thanks to a couple generous donors, neighbors and family purchasing apparel, and hungry Steven Supporters who paid $20.00 for a brownie (thank you!), we were hoping for a better turnout.


Therefore, we will having ANOTHER YARD AND BAKE SALE on Saturday!


Mark your calendars:


Saturday, September 19th

9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

11 Sherman Street


Swing by!


EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER



As Steven says something new or reaches a new milestone, we all fill with excitement and celebrate the amazing progress he is making. However, we can't expect Steven to always have a smile on his face while working so hard day-in and day-out on climbing up his tree. There are moments of sadness, anger and frustration, and these times are so difficult that it's often easy to get stuck on them.



Steven had a rough afternoon on Saturday, and we were all in tears after hearing from Tanya what the day had been like. Steven seemed frustrated and down on himself, and was having a hard time communicating what he wanted or was feeling. Tanya was strong, and made sure Steven did not see her crying, and helped him focus on the positive by reassuring him that he is getting better! Depression goes hand-in-hand with this type of stroke, so we are trying to do anything we can to keep Steven's spirits up and stay positive!
