Meet William, another amazing ambassador for the Easter Seals Walk with Me Houston 2021 event on April 24.

Will was born in Nashville Tennessee and was inspired by his Stepdad, who served as general counsel for the Army, to join the military in 2009. Will was stationed at Scholfield Barracks in Honolulu Hawaii, and had his first deployment in August 2011. While on a mission in 2012, his vehicle was hit by an 180-pound IED blast causing him to have many health complications and finally leading to having his leg amputated. This experience has caused Will to struggle with anxiety and PTSD, which his service dog, Charlie, has helped him cope with. The Thomas’s have had Charlie for several years now and have worked with a couple of dog trainers in the past in efforts to get him certified as a true professional service dog, but have not had good experiences with the training process until they connected with Easter Seals’ Veteran, Service Member and Military-Connected Family Services and Allie, the My Service Dog trainer. Easter Seals has made an impact in Will’s life by giving him the opportunity to train Charlie to become an official service dog and connect with other veterans in the community. The Thomas’s give a tremendous thanks to Easter Seals and Allie for their support and guidance to help make their beloved Charlie a true professional service dog, and providing an outlet whenever Will just needs someone to talk to.

Join Will and the rest of the ambassadors either on your block or at the Houston Zoo.

Meet Avery, our second ambassador for the Easter Seals Walk with Me Houston 2021 event.
.
She is a friendly, cheerful hard-working kid; and is our biggest motivator, cheerleader, and teacher. We noticed that she was very content, and didn’t wave her arms around or reach for toys. As we weren’t rookies, we sensed something was different. At her four-month checkup, she could not hold her head up and had not reached several milestones, so her pediatrician recommended we see a neurologist. That started several years of doctor visits and tests with an army of doctors trying to determine the cause of her hypotonia, developmental delays, and cerebellar atrophy. During this time of uncertainty, the constant was Avery’s excellent physical, occupational, and speech therapists and the support network provided by Avery’s school, other parents of special needs kids, and Easter Seals. By the time she was three years old, Avery was participating in several programs with Easter Seals, including respite care, day camps, and summer camps. Avery and her parents learned how to use her iPad as a communication device with Easter Seals’ BridgingApps. She’s now a pro and uses her Novachat at home and at school. Shortly after Avery finally got a diagnosis at age 10 (a genetic defect in her CACNA1A gene) from the Undiagnosed Diseases Program, she began attending the Caroline School and is now in her third year at the school. She absolutely loves her teachers and the other students at the school. One of Avery’s favorite activities has been going to sleep away camp at Camp for All with Easter Seals’ Camp Smiles. We are so grateful for Easter Seals and the opportunities it has provided for Avery to socialize and learn with her friends.
.
Join Avery and her family in #WWM2021 by choosing your route. Join us at the Houston Zoo or to Walk, Stroll or Roll the Block on April 24!
