Bill Sweeney has worked through some pretty challenging times. Those experiences lead him to being a compassion advocate for others that are dealing with life-changing events.
Bill went from dying in an MRI tube to becoming a paraplegic athlete thanks to Sportable. In gratitude, he and his bride-to-be, Cynthia Schmitz, invite you to participate in their Sportable fundraiser “Boundless Possibilities” to help others live beyond their dreams.
Sportable, based in Richmond-Virginia, uses sports to create profound impact for individuals with physical disabilities or visual impairments.
A stroke in Bill Sweeney’s spine left him paralyzed at age 58. That’s when he died in the MRI tube. The next year doctors found an extremely rare & deadly cancer. Again, he died but came back fighting.
Today at age 62, he’s so unstoppable he’s relearning how to walk. He plans to have his first dance with Cynthia at their reception with the help of Parker-Indego exoskeleton and Sheltering Arms Hospital.
Bill Sweeney is an inspirational human.
Bill is, more importantly, a generous man. He and Cynthia have dedicated the November 26, 2016 union of their love as a fundraiser for Sportable because sometimes an organization transforms lives that deeply. Watch the short video of Bill’s story on YouTube to learn more.
You can also help by spreading the word: please share this email and invite your friends to like the FaceBook page. Together we can be a part of offering inspiration and gratitude.
Bill & Cynthia thank you for all you are doing to support Sportable. Whether you volunteer, give or share, they thank you from the bottom of their hearts.

About Veterans Day
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Veterans Day is an official United States public holiday, observed annually on November 11, that honors military veterans, that is, persons who served in the United States Armed Forces. It coincides with other holidays, including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I; major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. The United States previously observed Armistice Day. The U.S. holiday was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.
Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day; Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who died while in military service.
The Office of the Senior Advocate, created in May 2003, is Chesterfield County’s leading resource for older adults and individuals with physical and sensory disabilities. The office serves residents of ages 60 and older, their family members and caregivers. Chesterfield County recognizes that older adults offer a wealth of knowledge and experience and want to live active, independent lives.
What We Do:
• Serve older adults who want to remain active, independent and vital contributors to their communities.
• Provide information and referrals to services and resources relating to issues of aging, caregiving, and physical or sensory disabilities.
• Assistance is available to caregivers, who may be older and need assistance.
• Give referrals to volunteer and employment opportunities. Many volunteer opportunities are available with the office.
• Promote and coordinate services for older adults and their caregivers through regular meetings with county Human Services departments, not-for-profit organizations and private businesses.
• Provide information and resources to grandparents and other kin raising a child.
• Act as a spokesperson for older adults and their caregivers.

More than just a few-mile trek, the Walk to Defeat ALS® is an opportunity to bring hope to people living with ALS, to raise money for a cure, and to come together for something you care about. The Walk to Defeat ALS® is The ALS Association’s biggest annual event, which raises funds that allow our local chapters to sustain care services and support research for much of the next year.

Senior Connections is devoted to helping seniors maintain quality of life and independence as they age. We place special emphasis on helping the frail and disadvantaged elderly who may be socially isolated and physically or economically at risk. Senior Connections serves as an advocacy and education organization focusing on issues that impact current and future retirees. Our dedicated staff and volunteers utilize Agency and community resources to identify and locate the most appropriate solutions based on an individual’s assessed personal needs and preferences. Older adults, persons with disabilities and caregivers also receive assistance with planning for and making decisions later in life.
One major component of our organization is our Care Coordination program. These professional and experienced staff handle phone requests for assistance from seniors and caregivers which may include a home visit for a person-to-person interview to determine what type of assistance is needed. Care Coordinators arrange specific services to meet the individual needs of a senior.
Senior Connections’ services include: information and assistance; caregiver support; care management; insurance counseling; money management; senior employment; volunteer opportunities; elder rights and ombudsman; nutrition including home delivered meals and congregate sites.
