Second generation of success

Like his mom, Evan was born with a hearing loss. Now they're both reaching goals with Easterseals services.

Craig Doninger closeup
Always moving forward

An accident couldn't stop Craig Doninger, who keeps moving forward toward his goals.

Ellie-Jane smiling close-up
Living a dream by dancing

When other children were learning to stand, walk and run, Ellie-Jane could only crawl. At age 6, a dream came true when she danced in the Children’s Nutcracker ballet!

Sandy’s life-long relationship with Easterseals started when she was just 3 years old, and she's been reaching goals ever since.

The gift of hearing is the gift of learning

Hearing tests can be scary for a child with a disability who doesn't speak English, but not for Guadalupe. She has fun and feels at home at the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center.

Maddie J closeup
A taste of independence

Children achieve so many "firsts" on their way to independence. Saying first words, taking first steps, or in Maddie's case, eating solid food for the first time - they're all milestones to be celebrated!

Michelle Schmitt square close-up photo
The journey back to an active life

A spinal cord injury took Michelle's ability to walk. But it didn't take her determination to return to her active lifestyle and regain her independence.
