I would like to nominate Ali's Angels Foundation. Ali's Angels Foundation INC is very near and dear to my heart. You see, one of my dearest friends lost her daughter and hero Ali Vise whom had Battens Disease 1year and 2 months ago on September 16, 2014. Battens disease is a neurological, degenerative disease for which there is no cure or treatment at this time. Battens disease causes children who are normally developing and reaching milestones to loose those abilities they achieved. It takes their ability to walk, talk, see, eat by mouth, they become wheelchair bound and bed bound and left to live in a vegetative state until they die. They develop seizures that increasingly get worse. These children suffer every minute of everyday just as Ali did, but you see Ali fought this monster with grace. She put on her happy face and showed her ' BIG BRAVE', despite what she was going through. She stole the hearts of 135,000 people just from her Facebook page Ali's Angels. Her mommie Donya Catlett has been doing so many wonderful selfless acts if kindness since Ali's passing. She is in the process of getting a special need park built for our Special needs community so they do not have to sit back on the sidelines and feel left out due to a disability. Ali is Donyas hero and Donya is doing her best to keep Ali's memory and legacy alive. I have never met a child her age that could change the hearts of thousands without even speaking a word,as that is one of many skills lost during the regression of Battes Disease. This foundation means a lot to me and my donations and support to Ali's Angels Foundation will continue always. Ali's Angels Foundation is working very hard tirelessly to raise funds to begin building Phase 1 of Ali's Wonderland Park.This will be an all inclusive barrier free park that will serve all disabilities to non disabilities.Anyone will be able to go to Ali's Wonderland Park and play and explore and have fun without having to sit back on the sidelines and feel left out. I my self have a special needs child who requires 100% assistance to perform most activities,so if we are at a park that is not equipped for the disabled or special needs,then we have to sit back on the sidelines and watch as everyone else enjoys that park.Our hometown of Hot Springs Arkansas does not have a special needs park, So winning this contest would very much be a huge blessing to not only Ali and Donya,but to our specil needs/disabled community.Our community needs a speial needs park. Winning this contest would help out tremendously. We are #AliStrong.
