Review for Access Partnership, Virginia Beach, VA, USA
My Dear Precious and Priceless Access Partnership......Candie, Laura and Anthony,
Forgive me for the lapse of time in acknowledging your Kindness and Graciousness to me even before my horrific car accident (broken pelvic, fractures on tail bone, etc..) on July 22, 2020 as well as during my recovery period and no doubt our future relationship together.
Please forgive me as well for my grammar and spelling and punctuation?? That's not my specialty, but I am very Passionate about the message I try to get across and the "EXCLAMATION SYMBOL" ON THE KEYBOARD IS MY FAVORITE KEY AS YOU WILL SEE!!!!!
When I think back how Access Partnership and I even connected, it brings a thought to mind and smile on my face of "IMAGINE THAT!....WHO KNEW!" WHO KNEW where this would lead to when I called Rena Lewis, my Advocate from ECI (The Endependence Center, Advocating for people with various physical or mental challenges) about having discomfort in my left knee and was in need of a knee brace, and without a moment's hesitation referred me to Access Partnership and one other resource.
Unknowingly, this would OPEN A DOOR....to a WONDERFUL WORLD OF RESOURCES AND NEW RELATIONSHIPS for myself and limitless others in need of some sought of medical device to assist them in their daily living........AND AT NO COST!!!!! FREE!!!! NO STRINGS ATTACHED!!!!
ALL THAT IS NEEDED TO QUALIFY IS THAT "YOU HAVE A "NEED!"
HOW PROFOUNDLY SIMPLE AND HOW SIMPLY PROFOUND ACCESS PARTNERS PROGRAM WORKS!!!
AND THAT'S NOT ALL! As for me personally and no doubt many many others, a personal and caring relationship with each of you has Blossomed along the way!!! IT'S A WIN WIN FOR ALL INVOLVED!!! THE GIFT OF GIVING....THE GIFT OF RECEIVING........AND THE GIFT OF GIVING BACK WHAT WAS GIVEN AND THEN SOME!!!!!
WOW!!!! NO DOUBT THE LORDS HANDS ARE ALL OVER THIS PROGRAM!!!ONLY THE GOOD LORD HIMSELF COULD HAVE SET SOMETHING UP LIKE THIS!!! AND YOU ARE A NON-PROFIT!!! AND SO IS ECI,!!! AND YOU CANDIE...AND YOU LAURA....AND YOU ANTHONY.....AS WELL AS RENA....ARE THE HANDS AND FEET OF JESUS.....!!!!!

BEFORE I CLOSE, I HAVE TO LET YOU KNOW.... REMEMBER THIS ALL BEGAN BECAUSE I NEEDED A CERTAIN KIND OF KNEE BRACE. WELL, ALL THIS IS SO GOD, BECAUSE AS FAR AS I KNOW TO THIS DAY YOU STILL DON'T HAVE THE KNEE BRACE I NEEDED AT THE TIME AND EVEN IF YOU DID, THE DOCTORS WOULDN'T EVEN ALLOW ME TO WEAR IT AT THIS SEASON OF MY LIFE BECAUSE OF MY CAR ACCIDENT!!!!! GOD IS THE BOSS!!! HE CONNECTS THE DOTS IN EACH OF OUR LIVES!!! THIS WAS NEVER ABOUT A KNEE BRACE!!!!
