Please Give Your Hope For 2018

Every year my friend Jason Hubal provided me with hope from People with Disabilities, their Families, and Friends in the form of an article containing what people hope for in the next year or what they have accomplished in the current year.  My friend Jason passed away which brought me into kind of a slump for even wanting to continue DisabilityVoice.  Among other things, Jason was committed to helping DisabilityVoice by writing articles.  I’m trying to keep the memory of Jason alive in me, in others, and in DisabilityVoice, by continuing with Hope for 2018.  Please give me what you hope for in 2018 or what you have accomplished in 2017 or both.  Please provide your name, age, location, and disability (if you have a disability).  Also, let me know which items you want public.

Deadline for submitting your Hope is January 24, 2018. Please email me at DisabilityVoice.Tim@gmail.com with your HOPE by January 24, 2018!  If you are a Friend of Mine on FaceBook, you can submit your hope through  Facebook Messenger.

This is also in remembrance of Mark Boatman who taught me to fight for what you need and Dwight Eldred Jr.  who taught me even more that God loves us all.  Mark and Dwight both passed away recently and all, including Jason, had Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Disabled Citizens Inc. (DCI) which operates in Appleton, Wisconsin and the Fox Valley area needs your help in the form of Board Members. This advocacy group has been operating for over five decades and has been involved in many improvements in the lives of people with disabilities.

DCI provides opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in activities such as going to minor league baseball and football games, and their yearly Holiday Party.

If you feel you might be appropriate for one of these positions, please come to the next DCI meeting. If you think someone else might be a good Board Member for one of these positions, encourage them to come to the next DCI meeting.  DCI to do so much more with your help.
