NODCC Regional Gathering - IA, MN & WI, Join the fun

I was recently contacted by Amanda Weichers, the mother
of 3 1/2 year old Beau. Her son, Beau, has partial
Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum and Epilepsy.

Amanda is a volunteer for the National Organization
for Disorders of the Corpus Callosum (NODCC) and she agreed
to put together a USA regional family gathering. Amanda is
specifically in charge of the states of:

Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The upcoming regional gathering will take place on:

Saturday, August 13, 2011 at 12:00 p.m. (noon)


Radisson Hotel by Mall of America/Water Park of America
in Bloomington, Minnesota.

Note: Water Park of America is located right in the hotel

Amanda says:

August will be here soon and I can't wait for our Midwest area
to get together in Minneapolis for our NODCC regional gathering.
I have organized this event in the hopes that families (affected
by a disorder of the corpus callosum) from Iowa, Minnesota,
Wisconsin and any other surrounding states might attend and find
comfort in meeting others that "understand".

I was certainly hoping that more might step forward and be able
to attend, but as of right now there are only 3 other families
besides ours that are coming. Some is always better than none,
so I am grateful for those that are able to attend.

It will be an awesome day with a great meal, great
to talk and then fun at the indoor water park.

We plan to follow it up the next day with a trip to the
Como Park Zoo
in Minneapolis.

It will be a nice little vacation for our family from Iowa and
we'll be able to make some new friends as a result.

If anyone else is interested in attending, please contact me for
details. The more the merrier.

Amanda also states:

"Because some states around us don't have a volunteer,
I've been contacted by some in South Dakota and Nebraska
and I've told them they are more than welcome to join us."

Please contact Amanda Weichers for complete details.
