Featured Participant Stories

Meet Will

My name is Will and I am a proud member of the Easter Seals Family. I participated in my first ever Walk With Me at the Houston Zoo on April 20, 2023. I am a veteran of the United States Navy from 2003-2007 and again in 2010. In 2004, while serving on board the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72), we were the first to respond to the Tsunami that hit Indonesia on December 26th, 2004. From that travesty of destruction and death really messed me up as a young 20-year-old leaving me with scars on my mind. In 2012, I was diagnosed with chronic and severe PTSD, anxiety, and depression from the events that transpired from that event. My life was a constant struggle, dealing with panic attacks that would happen at random and migraines being on 11 different medications at one point. In February of 2022 I was introduced to Easter Seals and their Veteran Organization. They help individuals like me with service animals to help me with those daily struggles of living life with PTSD.  Read More...

Meet Emmanuel and Israel
 

Emmanuel and Israel will turn 16 years old soon. My boys were born at 37 weeks and were healthy babies until around the year and half age, when they were sick frequently and had severe ear infections. They lost the words they had and at times seemed like my babies had vanished. One of the things that we experience was lack of awareness and neglect from their first pediatrician.

By age three the boys were diagnosed with speech impairment, autism and sensory processing disorder. With the help of the Doctor who diagnosed them at TCH, I started advocating for my boys and they started PPCD and therapies outside the school.  For many years the boys would be in therapy 2 to 3 times a week taking Speech, OT and PT.   Read more...
