    CELEBRATING BUFFALO TOGETHER
    #TOTALLY BUFFALO

 

We’ve got a date! (And a magazine spread!)

Things are falling into place!

I wrote a blog a few months back where I talked about the fact that my daughter, Maria will soon be meeting and thanking – the Mercy Flight Crew responsible for saving her life seven years ago. (Click HERE to read original blog post).

So it seems to be all set – we will be meeting the crew on July 27th in the evening. I can’t wait. In the meantime, we had a bit of a photo shoot for an upcoming feature in Buffalo Healthy Living Magazine where they’ll be talking about Maria’s experience with Mercy Flight. It was a bit of a walk back in time for Maria.

We met up at the Mercy Flight offices in Cheektowaga. Nobody from Maria’s crew was there, but those helicopters sure were. Maria decided to take a peek and it brought with it a flood of emotion. She and Alexa got on board the aircraft and spoke with a crew member for a bit. I could hear Maria asking questions and talking about what she remembered from that night. She doesn’t talk about it very often, so it surprised me a bit.

The anniversary of Maria’s accident is July 31st. We plan to celebrate, as we do every year.

July 27th we will be celebrating too. We will share it with you right here. 🙂
