Let's Get Goin', Groupies!!

To know Griffin is to LOVE him. If you don't know our Griffin, we're here to help hit the highlights!

Griffin was born with a rare genetic condition, Leber's Congenital Amaurosis (LCA) which has caused him to be blind from birth. LCA is classified as a severe retinal dystrophy resulting in profound vision loss. Having LCA often means that whatever (extremely low) vision you are born with, you will most likely lose. Griffin may no longer have light perception, but he sure knows how to look on the bright side of things!

When we first received this news, we were scared and couldn't imagine what life with a blind child would look like (no pun intended). Griffin has blown us away at each and every step. He is the happiest, silliest, most normal 2 year old that you could know! With his mobility cane in hand, he is always exploring, discovering and making his mark on the world! You can often find Griffin playing catch, jumping, riding his tricycle, or looking for a way to get to splash pad!

Without the help of Easterseals, Griffin would not be thriving the way that he is today. Each week, Griffin is able to work one on one with his occupational, physical and speech therapists to catch up in areas that don't come as easy to someone without their vision. Therapies, along with the educational and social opportunities that he is afforded in the developmental preschool have been the perfect combination for Griffin to be ready to attend the Arkansas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired this fall.

Griffin has also had the honor of functioning as one of the Easterseals representatives for the past year and has enjoyed getting to experience the wonderful givings that Easterseals has to offer up close and personal at various events.

Walk With Me is a 5K Run and Family Fun Walk that raises money for Easterseals Arkansas! Easterseals helps thousands of individuals with disabilities and their families each year to by providing exceptional services to ensure that all people with disabilities and special needs have equal opportunities to live, learn, work, and play in their communities!

Walk With Me on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at Easterseals Outpatient Building parking lot. You can join as a 5K Runner, Family Fun Walker, Virtual Walker, and/or make a donation! Every dollar raised stays right here in Arkansas to help Easterseals serve our community!

We hope you will join us in celebrating all of Griffin's achievements thus far and help spur him and other children on to reach their full potentials.
