Klicks for Chrissy

We need to build an Angel’s path. A special way for a special person…

My sister-in-law, Chrissy, has Rett Syndrome ( is non-verbal and is confined to a wheel chair. She lives in a home, provided by Participation House Support Services, London Area (, with three other women who are also confined to wheelchairs and are non-verbal.

But they are more than people with special challenges. Chrissy is more than a person with special challenges.

Chrissy is an Angel who blesses all who know her. She shows with sparkling eyes and a contagious smile what she can’t say.

Chrissy loves being outside. The back yard of her house has become “Chrissy’s Garden” because she and my Mother-in-law work long and joy-filled hours there. She would love to access the whole yard but the sidewalk is not complete.

We have consulted a gardening expert and a contractor. We have a plan and a quote: the house needs $10,000 to complete the sidewalk extension. We would like to have the funds by May 2014.

Our family is raising funds to complete the side walk so Chrissy and her house-mates can enjoy the beautiful flowers, sounds of nature, changes of seasons… things that bring a sparkle to Chrissy’s eyes and a smile that lights our hearts.

Our little family of 5 is committed to traveling 5000 Self-Propelled Kilometers.

Klicks for Chrissy.
