ISAIAH age 7, ALAYNA age 5 and DAVID age 1

Isaiah, Alayna and David all have special needs. These siblings were all sleeping on a mattress on the floor for safety reasons. The Emily Ann Griffin Foundation purchased equipment to get the children safely sleeping above floor level, which assisted not only the children but alleviated some lifting strain and stress for their parents. We were also able to purchase some sensory devices for this family. Thank you to their father for serving our country in the US Air Force.

Declan has Cerebral Palsy.  Declan’s Mom requested assistance with physical therapy and horseback riding therapy. The Emily Ann Griffin Foundation was able to pay for both of these therapies for Declan
