Ebony Jones - Will to Walk

ebony jones

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of the Ebony Jones Will to Walk Incorporation, and we hope that support will continue.

A highlight for everyone at the 5th Annual Ball, was to see Ebony walking on crutches with the help of her dedicated aide, Julie. Ebony's improvement to this stage is due, in part, to the therapy she receives which is fully paid by funds raised at our ball.

The funds have also purchased a new laptop computer that Ebony uses everyday at school. Physiotherapy, occupation therapy and private health cover will continue to be funded. Ebony's medical team have informed us that surgery will be necessary in the near future, all medical costs not covered by private health insurance will also be met.

Each year the funds surplus to Ebony's needs are banked in an investment account. One of the future visions of this incorporation is to establish a resource and information centre to assist the families of children with a disability. These families cope with a great deal of additional financial and emotional stress and many have little or no assistance. Our goal is to offer these families advice and direction, emotional support, help with sourcing equipment and also, a chance to get together with others in the same situation. We are very pleased to say that we have got the ball rolling and have been in contact with several families and have offered support and advice.

Again, we sincerely thank you for your help! If you would like to help us through Ritchies Community Benefit Program, you can nominate Ebony Jones Will to Walk Inc when you apply for your free Ritchies Community Benefit Card at any Ritchies store.
