June is Trevor Rickerson month for Addie's Angels!
Please join 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 will go directly towards the purchase of Trevor's van. In addition, Addie's Angels will make a donation matching the total amount donated for Trevor during the month of June (up to $5,000.00). Many of you may remember back in July of 2012 we did the same thing for Mark LeBlanc and were able to donate $10,100.00 to Mark. Let's come together now to surpass that amount for Trevor!
Simply click on the DONATE tab to the right and make a donation now!

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.
