A Mother's Gratitude
"My husband Ryan, and I are high school sweethearts and the proud parents of three little girls, MacKenzie, Brooklynn and Natallie.
A year ago, our lives changed when, Natallie, our newborn daughter, was diagnosed with a rare seizure disorder. She's the first person to ever receive this diagnosis.
At the time, we didn't know anything about the Avera McKennan Foundation. We just knew that the team at Avera cared not only about Natallie's present needs, but also her future. The foundation's support helped make every detail of Natallie's care possible - from travel expenses to the personalized support our entire family received.
Giving to the Avera McKennan Foundation is critical, because you never know when you are going to need help -- and it's wonderful to know that help is there waiting for you. As a mom, I'm grateful for those who support the foundation and families like mine."
