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.

A couple of weeks ago I posted an article explaining Disabled Citizens Inc DCI needs Board Member Positions filled or DCI will have to be dissolved.  This statement still stands true.  I hope people will decide to run for Board Member Positions and will show up on November 27 at Brewster Village at 6:30 PM.

I, Timothy A Carey, will be running for President of Disabled Citizens Inc.  Please check out my document on why I think I should be the next President of DCI.  I would also like to take the time to nominate Joe Martin as Vice President of DCI.  I would also like to endorse Marie Koepsel for Treasurer of DCI and Marissa Bennwitz for Secretary of DCI.  Please also read their documents on why they think they both should be Board Members of DCI.  Marie and Marissa will be at the November 27 DCI meeting and they will be notifying the current board of their Intentions to run for a Board Member Position. I will also be at the next DCI meeting and I will be notifying the current board of my intentions to run for President of DCI.

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. Examples of these issues are transportation, curb cut outs, and handicap parking & fines. DCI also gives money back to various organizations. 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.
Disabled Citizens Inc might have to close operation if they cannot find some Board Members. DCI is in need of 4 Board Member positions including President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. 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.

The Next DCI Meeting: 
November 27, 6:30 PM

Truth, Lies and Tracheostomies

When neuromuscular disease weakens the muscles used for breathing, many people benefit greatly from noninvasive ventilation (NIV), which can add years of breathing support.

But when a tracheostomy and ventilator are suggested for better breathing, some people see NIV as “enough” and a trach and vent as somehow “too much.”

When a person’s overall quality of life is no longer acceptable, that’s certainly a valid choice. But a trach and vent shouldn’t be ruled out if quality of life problems are due in large part to respiratory problems.
