MEMBER OF THE MONTH:

July Member of the Month is Tammy M. Tammy writes: My name is Tammy and I'm 52 years old born with spina bifida. My role model has been my pastor, teacher as well as friend for the past 11 years. He always makes me laugh, always felt loved, encouraged me in the hard times, but most importantly continually pointed me to look to Jesus at ALL times! HE (Jesus) is my Rock! Things that make me smile -are dogs!! They can make even worst day - better! I experienced that in the last 8 wks, as i had rotator cuff surgery. Being a paraplegic made the surgery that much more of a challenge! My therapist was so thoughtful and brought her dog to visit on a Sunday (her day off). It was the emotional boost I needed! What I have figured out about life with Spina Bifida is that the challenges we face can either bring you down and you quit OR you can face that challenge head on and be stronger for it! But let me also say if it wasnt for friends and church family along the way, I couldn't not have made it through many of the obstacles life has thrown. And I am thankful for each of them! We need each other!
