THANK YOU OCTA MEMBERSHIP,
I would like to thank all of the OCTA membership for allowing me the time using sick day donations in order to take care of Chloe during this past year. After a difficult year, following Chloe's 23rd and 24th surgeries, with monthly trips to Boston Children's hospital for follow up care, a body brace, homebound education and physical therapy Chloe is now thriving and getting back to her normal self. She still has a lot of work to do to regain her strength but without the generosity of my fellow OCTA members, she would not be as healthy as she is today.
Chloe returned to school on a shortened schedule this fall and has taken to blogging as well as public speaking. She, too, has found inspiration in the kindness of others and often writes and speaks of it. Her journey has been an arduous one but we all continue to learn from her mighty spirit and positive attitude. It truly does "take a village." Our family is truly grateful for the generosity, understanding and simple kindness. We look forward to paying it forward. For those that want to follow her progress, she is a blogger (published 7 times, now!) www.chloejoyce.com
She speaks on kindness, acceptance, and what it is like being a kid in a wheel chair.
