Support Jaedyn Knight

If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent, and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings. Our daughter, Jaedyn, has thrived in the Sara’s Garden community. Despite having Spina Bifida, we have watched her walk across the gym floors using only canes. The determination on her sweet face as she took one small step at a time made many eyes in the crowd tear up.

One day while getting ready for school, Jaedyn surprised me by saying she could put her own shirt on. I handed it to her then watched as she slipped her arms through, poked her head up, and smiled her infectious smile when she was done.  Jaedyn has learned to brush her teeth, bathe herself, get mostly dressed, and help with her own medical routines. She has grown more independent with the help of her teachers, paraprofessionals, peers, and her own amazing attitude. We are blessed to be included in the Sara’s Garden community.

Our attitude towards life determines life’s attitude towards us. Jaedyn is the epitome of this. Her smile demands those in her presence to smile. Her laughs will at least pull a chuckle out of you. Her positivity energetically radiates off of her. Our daughter will befriend anybody. Her heart does not discriminate. We hear from her everyday about her adventures at school and fun times with friends. One of Jaedyn’s favorite things to do is attend church to socialize with the good-hearted people there. She thoroughly enjoys putting in effort to get to know anybody. We are incredibly proud of her for showing love although it’s easy for her because that is who she is. Good people deserve good things. We continue to try to give her our best efforts every day. That’s what she gives to us.

You may not be able to control every situation and its outcome, but you can control your attitude and how you deal with it. Jaedyn has never viewed her Spina Bifida as a hinderance. She continues to be determined against her obstacles. Sara’s Garden offers a month-long camp in the summer that helps children with mobility, independence, flexibility, and life skills. We believe that because of her positive attitude and tremendous strength she will continue to improve and succeed with the help of this amazing program. However, we do need help financing this opportunity.

The month-long Conductive Education camp runs for four hours each day, for 19 days, and the cost of $2,660.00 is not covered by insurance.  If you could assist us with the cost (or even just part of the cost) of a single $35 hour of therapy it would help reduce our overall expenses greatly. 100% of the funds received go into an account in Jaedyn’s name and will be used for her treatments.  Any contribution made would be considered a tax-deductible donation as Sara’s Garden is a 501(c)(3) non-profit facility. Checks can be made out to Sara’s Garden with Jaedyn’s name on a sheet of paper accompanying the check.  Please do NOT write her name directly on the check. You can also donate online via credit card by clicking on the DONATE NOW button below. 

Our family would be grateful for any help getting our Jaedyn into this camp. Thank you to all, and God bless Sara’s Garden.
