Thank you Cupcake a la Mode!

CUPCAKES for a CAUSE! If you are lucky enough to be different, don't ever change!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to Cupcake a la Mode!  Former blog posts have honored Cupcake a la Mode for their delicious and fresh cupcakes; this time around I want to recognize Cupcake a la Mode for their community support and leadership. This past Valentine’s Day, Cupcake a la Mode partnered with my family to organize a fundraiser to support the awareness of disorders of the corpus callosum, a condition near and dear to our hearts…and home. My son, Deven can brighten anyone’s day with his smile and laugh…his laugh invites fun, play and love. Deven was born with a neurodevelopmental disorder: agenesis of the corpus callosum (ACC). The corpus callosum is a brain structure made up of millions of nerve fibers; it connects the left and right hemispheres of the brain, similar to a bridge that connects one community to the next. In typical development, ideas and thoughts cross-over this bridge without delays, however for Deven these ideas and thoughts going over the bridge (i.e. corpus callosum) are jammed like a five-lane highway merging into two-lanes. Each day, with love and support from family, friends, teachers, and the community, he makes tremendous progress towards his academic and social goals. I want to formally thank Cupcake a La Mode for their support in this fundraiser. With purchases made from family, friends, and the community, Cupcake a la Mode graciously donated $170.75 to the National Organization for Disorders of the Corpus Callosum.
