Help & Hope For Daniel

My friend Karen called  a few months ago and asked if I would help with a video about her son Daniel. I  knew her son had Tourette’s syndrome and OCD; but since I had never witness an episode I had no idea of the debilitating form of his condition.

Like every mother Karen wants her son to have an opportunity for a good life.  She really didn’t need my help with the video. Watch and what you’ll see is a very moving message from a mother who has not given up hope for her son’s future.  After you watch the video, take a moment and visit Karen’s website. Thank you!


Bras For Hope

Bras for Hope was an event sponsored by ‘Belle Mode Intimates’ located in Fairfax Corner in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Donated bras were hung on clotheslines across Fairfax Corner. Women who donated bras were given a 20% discount and free ‘Pinkberry’ coupon for their participation. In the photo below, Miss D.C. shows off the colorful assortment bras.
