Joey’s Eagles Annual Mother’s Tea Event

Adult & Child Tickets

Joey's Eagles Mothers Tea 2015

Our organization “Joey’s Eagles” has been providing support to families facing the diagnosis of cancer of their children since 1996. We are very proud of the work we have done and could never have accomplished so much without each and everyone of you – our
devoted community.

Thank you so very much for your commitment to our organization.

Our families need to travel long distances to hospitals to receive treatment for their children since there are no local hospitals to treat children in our region. The burden of the expense of travel and missing work for parents is an overwhelming stress emotionally and financially for families facing lengthy illnesses with their children. Thanks to your generosity and continued support to our organization, we have been able to provide gas
cards to our families for their travels and assist them with paying many other expenses through this very difficult time in their lives.

God Bless you,

Nelly & Joey’s Eagles

RIFTON ARTICLE ON TRICYCLE FOR DAVID BRYAN

Rifton Adaptive Equipment, manufacturers of specialized equipment for children and adults with physical disabilities, posted on their blog about the Rifton special needs bike provided to David Bryan by Joey’s Eagles. They were touched to hear David and his family’s story and were able to help us with purchase of the bike. Take a moment to read their post: David Bryan, Four Year Old Cancer Survivor.

They also added Joey’s Eagles to their resource list, Funding Sources for Adaptive Equipment, which aims to help parents and caregivers navigate the complicated funding process and find organizations that can help with funding when other channels fail.

We wish David and his family all the very best-and happy bike riding!

Messages from The Bryan Family with photos

Nelly,

It was such a pleasure to welcome both you and Mari into our home
on Thursday. Thank you so much and thank Joey’s Eagles for everything you
have and continue to do for so many people. Mari asked me to write a few
sentences for her school so I have attached my email along with photos.
Anything else please don’t hesitate to ask.

Love, The Bryans.

 

Mari,

Thank you so much for everything you have done and especially the
difference we can already see in David after he received his new tricycle.

As you can see from one of the photos, David was first introduced to the
“Rifton” while undergoing physical therapy every day when he was still in
“CHOP”. We had to leave the tricycle therapy to last as he screamed the
house down when it was time for another child to have a go. Now thanks to
you and everyone at Asa Packer Elementary School David has his own
“Rifton” which he still gets so excited about every time he goes for a
ride.

We have no doubt that this tricycle is and will continue to be a huge
factor in David’s recovery.

Thank you so much again for everything,

The Bryans.
