1. Christina nominated Annie Marie. Chris is 24 years old.
2. Thomas nominated his wife Adrian Lee. Adrian is 75 years old.
Christina writes: “Annie doesn’t have DS but she does have CP and eventually she will be blind!! She’s a very tall girl for her age, and most jeans bother where she had a hernia removed! She goes to dancing school & she just finally learned to pedal her 4 wheel bike! She’s very smart & tries to be independent. She’s a wonderful girl!!”
How would a pair of our jeans make a difference in her life? “a new pair of jeans would lighten her day!! She loves to get new clothes!! It’s hard to find jeans for her because she doesn’t like the button & zipper!!”
Thomas writes: “My wife has Post-Polio and gets around in an electric wheelchair. She is having trouble putting on slacks, pants and shorts and I have to help her. We cannot afford to have someone come in to help her so we are looking for clothing that will make her life easier and less strenuous. She is always smiling and helping others in ways she is capable of doing. I do most of the cooking and she does the house cleaning from her chair which is getting harder for her to do. She takes care of our bills as she is the one who is good at that sort of thing. We are both on Disability.”
How would a pair of our jeans make a difference in her life? “If she had jeans that were easy to put on she could remain more independent and her life would be that much easier. I hate to see her struggle in any way.”
