Hosted by TEAM NOAH'S NECESSITIES
EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
Noah is an incredible 8 year old boy living with Cerebral Palsy.
Tanya Walker of Washington PA is the single mother of two awesome children. Her son Noah was born at 27 weeks and spent eighty-five days in the NICU where he endured many struggles. At about two weeks old, Noah became very sick with a blood infection. It was a miracle that he survived! However, as a result of being so sick and not getting enough oxygen to his brain, Noah has brain damage. This means that he has Cerebral Palsy. Noah has severe developmental delays and cannot walk or talk. Amazingly he has learned to communicate through sounds and gestures. Noah had laser eye surgery when he was in the NICU but his vision remains limited. Since he spent such a lengthy amount of time on a vent while hospitalized, scar tissue developed in his throat and he continues to suffer with respiratory issues. Noah has difficulties swallowing so he eats via a G tube. Even with all these obstacles, Noah remains a sweet, loving little boy. He is always smiling, cuddling and offering his special kisses to his mother and sister Cheyenne.
Noah spent the first five years of his life in and out of the hospital. Once he seemed stabilized, his mother sought a full time job where she continues to work. Unfortunately Noah began having seizures in 2012 and has had them more frequently through 2014. Nothing seemed to help prevent them and surgery became a possibility. A second opinion at Children’s Hospital of Michigan brought answers but it was not the cure that Tanya was hoping for. The seizures have not stopped. More diagnostic tests and treatment are in Noah’s immediate future.
In order to help fund these medical trips and help secure a down payment for a wheelchair accessible vehicle, we are having a Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser in Noah’s honor. We will be posting a fundraiser flyer in the near future with all the details. It will be held in the banquet room at Alpine Lanes and we will have lots of Chinese Auction gifts to raffle, 50/50 tickets, and lots of other goodies! Please share this event!! Hope to see you there and God Bless you for your support!
