Meet Brianna...

Brianna Dupuie, Easterseals Ambassador 2017

When Brianna arrived to the home of the Dupuie family as a baby, she needed help. She was a typically developing child until her world was turned upside down when she was violently shaken. Brianna suffered from Hydrocephalus and had to have brain surgery. Additionally, she also had a stroke, Post Traumatic Epilepsy and seizures. 

Scott, Dena and Brianna found Easterseals when Brianna was only 14 months old. Brianna received physical occupational and speech therapy that were vital to her development and life. The Dupuies are some of Easterseals Central Texas's biggest advocates. 

"The Easterseals team gave my family the tools they needed to help Brianna pursue her hopes and dreams," Dena says.

Brianna is now an independent 10-year-old who has defied all the odds and over the last two years, the Dupuie family has actively advocated alongside Easterseals to reinstate a 350 million dollar budget cut to therapy services for children.

Hope Realty Texas Is Giving Back
In addition to advocating for Easterseals, Dena and Scott own and operate Hope Realty Texas. Now they are using their business to support Easterseals programs at a higher degree.

Hope Realty Texas recently created a giveback program for anyone who buys or sells their home with them, whereby they will give 10% of their commissions to Easterseals Central Texas.

We're so grateful for Scott and Dena's support! Give Hope Realty Texas a call and support Easterseals with the Dupuie family!
