From the Team in McLean, VA...

“Beyond grateful for all you and the team have done to help (our daughter). There is an extra bounce in her step today, something I haven’t seen in a very very long time. She is proud of her achievement and told me she hasn’t felt this happy in forever. Wanted you to know that and express my appreciation.”
