A Halloween Treat for Hemispherectomy Kids All over the US and World !
While most of us were taking care of our day-to-day business, a very special group of angels from The Hemispherectomy Foundation were busily trying to make the day special for Hemispherectomy children all over the United States and even in other countries.
Four angels, Caren Jennings, Traci Cottrell, Lindy Shelton, and Jen Steward created Halloween treat bags and toys for all children who are part of The Hemispherectomy Foundation. These Halloween Hemi Hugs were sent out in mass earlier this week to the delight of parents and children who have undergone the same surgery as Jessie.
Many were overwhelmed, as they are not used to being treated the Aledo way. Caren, Traci, Lindy and Jen are working on that one package at a time.
Below is a picture of one of our kids who received a Halloween Hug. One of the prizes in the bag was this nifty pair of glasses, which he is modeling below.

This is Aiden Waters and is the son of Rachel Waters, The Hemispherectomy Foundation's Specialty Director - Sturge Weber Syndrome. They are on the West Coast. Aiden recently had his surgery and is recovering well. Aiden's story is at .

God Bless,
