 Our son Gramm has Spina Bifida. Through a scholarship from Family Hope Foundation, he is receiving therapy from Amy Wallenburg at 1 Plus 1 therapy. We could sense Amy's commitment and determination from the very beginning. That assurance revealed itself following one of Gramm's latest intensive therapy sessions. He is now beginning to walk around home and church with only one cane—using his free hand to carry a book or hold his mom's hand. What an indescribable joy!
