Recognize this cutie from last year’s United Way video?


Of course! Who could forget Kylar, our sweet girl from the Therapeutic Riding Center?


I was extremely excited to catch up with Kylar & her mom Kelly at the Miracles to Milestones Park in Destrehan earlier this month and can’t wait to share with you an update on her amazing progress very soon. Stay tuned!


In the meantime, I wanted to post photos of the precious thank you cards we received from Kelly as well as the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research.



As I read the card, of course I loved the adorable pictures of Kylar, but also there were a few words that struck me:


“Without awareness, there is no funding. Without funding, there is no research. Without research, there is no cure. Without a cure, there is no hope. We need to work together to make sure there is ALWAYS HOPE!”
