Addie's Angels, Inc. would like to thank our Mississippi teacher friends and supporters like Raye Ann Harvison, Karin Jones Harvison, Amanda French and Melanie Easterlin Belk and Ethan Belk. As some Addie's Angels followers may recall, a few years ago Ethan Belk, who was then an elementary student, led Purvis Elementary in a fundraiser that raised over $1000.00 for Addie's Angels. This week we at Addie's Angels were able to 'Pay it Forward'. Through the information we gathered from Facebook posts of our Mississippi friends we were made aware of the Batesville Elementary fire which destroyed their Special Needs Classroom. Addie's Angels was able to purchase the entire wish list of special needs items for Batesville. Thank you all so much to our Mississippi friends who have become part of the Addie's Angels network and have helped us to assist those in need!
Thank you for helping Addie's Angels to donate
$8,136.00 to Trevor Rickerson!
Thank you all so much for joining us in supporting Trevor, who has been diagnosed with SMA, Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Trevor and his mom, Brittany, have always been supportive of Addie's Angels, and now he is in need of a wheelchair accessible van. So, during the month of June, all donations made to Addie's Angels went directly towards the purchase of Trevor's van. In addition, Addie's Angels has made a $5,000.00 donation in addition to the total amount donated for Trevor during the month of June. Thank you all so much for coming together in support of Trevor!

When Amiee was 20 weeks pregnant we went to our doctor to find out the sex of the baby, and after we were told that we were having a little girl, the doctor also asked us to see a "high-risk" specialist to get a more in depth ultrasound. A few weeks later the ultrasound revealed that our little baby girl would not have a fully developed left arm. Her left arm would extend just below the elbow, and she would not have any functional parts of her left hand or fingers. While this was difficult to hear, we concentrated more on the fact that everything else seemed to be perfectly normal and healthy with our baby. Addison Claire Gallagher was born on November 3, 2009 and through the love and support of a wonderful network of family and friends she is developing physically and mentally at an astounding rate. We have been blessed to receive a wonderful variety of services from a lot of wonderful people and we just want to have an opportunity to give a little bit back to those who may not be as fortunate as we are.
