Tyler has beaten the odds time & time again. He is 14 years old & has had 26 surgeries. Through this adversity it has molded him into a strong, resilient & sassy TEEN. He now proudly tells people he has Spina Bifida. He is able to see that being born with Spina Bifida does not define him, it is only one aspect of who he is. He is a young man with dreams, goals & looking to make his way in this life. Hoping to make a difference & better the lives of those living with disabilities. One way we can help him is by supporting the wonderful programs that Spina Bifida of Greater New England has to offer. Tyler is active in the community & asks that you donate generously to ensure we can continue to offer excellent programs for our members. Due to Covid, we have had to change all of our events that are our biggest fundraising efforts for the year. This puts us at risk to not being able to offer essential events that our members need.
That is WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP! I know you are being asked by many to donate, but I can assure you every dollar you donate to "SBAGNE" will be put to good use funding programs like BEST/BLING where teens with SB come together for a weekend & can feel completely accepted surrounded by those that understand their challenges. This weekend is life changing for these teens, to know they are not alone. It also goes to fund our Empowerment grants that provide assistance to people in need which has been very important during these tough times. It also will go to funding our Adult events we are hosting, providing them with opportunities to get together. These are just a few of the amazing ways we service our comminity. EVERY donation counts & is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support!!
Tyler, Amy, Steve & Andrew Bois
