Ryan Weimer is on a Mission and its to make sure that kids in Wheelchairs have an unforgettable experience at Halloween. His organization, Magic Wheelchair is a nonprofit that makes epic Halloween costumes for children in wheelchairs
I say EPIC, I mean EPIC!!! There will not be a kid big or small who will not be envious of the amazing, incredible, imaginative and spectacular costumes Ryan builds at Magic Wheelchair, transforming wheelchairs into AWESOMNESS and at no expense to their families. The costumes are only limited by Imagination and we all know imaginations can be LIMITLESS, RIGHT?
Each year, children ( with their parents permission ) submit a one to 3 minute video explaining to the organization what they want to be for Halloween and why they should be chosen to receive a costume.
Out of all the submissions, five kids are chosen to receive an incredible costume that is guaranteed to put a smile on their face.
So, how did this come about? Ryan Weimer and his wife have five children, 2 of whom have SMA, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, making it impossible for them to walk. Sadly two others passed from this disease, however In 2008, when Ryan’s eldest child Keaton received his first wheelchair, his father asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween? Keaton answered, "A Pirate"
This is where it all started. Like any parent Ryan wanted to please his kids so he made an AMAZING Pirate ship. Ryan wanted his kids to be seen as superstars, not someone to be pitied.

Cuffing Season, Part 1
This week, I will discuss the change in dynamics during the months when loneliness is amplified and the hunt for Mr. or Mrs. Right is intensified. I will have Dr. Picasso Nelson, who is also a pastor, on the show with me to help us shed some light on what goes on during this time of the year. Feel free to call in with your questions and comments. The call in number is: 917-932-1078.
Please join host Frankie Picasso on Thursday, September, 24th at 1:oo pm EDT when her guest is Pastor Ashley Johnson (A.J), a 30 yr old dynamo whose unique combination of faith, passion, zeal and devotion have put him at the forefront of change and established him as a leader who is willing to take on the advancement and development of the Greater Hartford community.
One of the ways AJ is leading change, is to reform the perception and stereotypical image that comes to the minds of most black men when they see themselves portrayed in the media today, which is most often in the form of a mugshot or a hashtag.
These dominant and pervasive images provoke an inescapable infection on the nation's psyche; an imprint that distills the identity of black men to nothing more than "dangerous" and "uneducated."
His call to action was to join forces with Public Health attorney DeVaughn Ward and create a group they named, 'CALLING ALL BROTHERS' !
AJ and DeVaugn needed to create a paradigm shift that would change and shape future generations for success.
So on August 25th, they did what any educated black man would do, they gathered 100 of the best and brightest Brothers together, and asked them to dress for work, and come down to Martin Luther Jr. Elementary School to greet the kids on their first day of school. In attendance were lawyers, judges, CEOs, dentists and doctors; who were waiting to give the kids HIGH FIVE's as they got off the school buses.
Why? "All these kids see is homicide after homicide," says Pastor AJ Johnson, who is also a community organizer and pastor at Urban Hope Refuge Church.
"We can't wait for somebody to come and help us. Nobody is going to ride in on a white horse to change the hood. We have to do it." Says AJ Johnson,
Please join host Frankie Picasso for a very special show on Thursday August 27th when my guest is Police Constable Gareth Ward who is campaigning diligently to help his super hero buddy, 5 year old Luke Brewer and family fly to America where Luke will be treated for cancer in October.
Luke was recently diagnosed with Rabdomysocoma, a type of sarcoma that attacks connective tissue and usually hits children 1 to 5 years old. As treatment is unavailable in the UK, Luke and his family need to come to the USA and the course of therapy will take 7 weeks.
Gareth hopes to raise enough to bring the family for treatment and have a little left over to send Luke to Disneyland as a special treat for the brave little man.
To date, Gareth has been able to raise a little over £1000, but this is still a long way off the target of £2000 he needs.
In addition to the Go Fund ME site: http://gofundme.com/lukethesuperhero Gareth is also planning to raise money by participating in a 9bar9x9 running event in Luke’s name. This is an 81km endurance run held in Guildford, Kent, UK, on 10 October and Gareth will be running it in full police gear weighing approximately 42 lbs. In addition to all of this, Gareth also designed some amazing super hero wrist bands that are also a fund raiser and can be purchased on Facebook by going to https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=427589130758195&id=232219716961805
Please join us to help raise money for Luke and CALL US to send your POSITIVE MESSAGES of LOVE to Luke who I know will listen to the show and love to hear your words of encouragement.
Please join host Frankie Picasso this Thursday, August 13th at 1:00 pm EDT on The Good Radio Network when she is joined by her guest, Christina Fast, an incredible young Canadian woman who founded SPECTrust, ‘Sterile Processing Education Charitable Trust’). The trust which that was established to support education related to effective sterile processing and infection control practices in hospitals and clinics in developing countries such as Guinea, Sierra Leone, Congo and Madagascar.
Christina first went to West Africa in 2011 when she volunteered to be an OR Sterilizer for Mercy Ships Canada. While on board, she was able to teach to some crew as a well as local staff the International course on Sterilization that she was currently delivering in Calgary.
Curious about the local hospital, Christina asked these nurses if they would take her to visit the local hospital to view their sterilization setup. She almost wished she hadn’t. ‘
Not only were their sterilization techniques unsanitary, “They had a few drum sterilizers that had been broken for an unknown length of time.” says Christina, but the infection rates post surgery were like 90% compared to the hospital where Christina worked was 0.03% surgically related infection rate.
Touring that hospital, Christina realized at that moment that she hadn't been called to Africa to serve onboard, but to be a voice for this unseen and so crucially important area of the hospitals.”
Since that visit, Christina has developed more training, and continues to volunteer sterilization techniques in collaboration with the African Mercy.
Through a government grant, Christina has been able to purchase Pressure Cookers that she brings to hospitals and medical centres throughout West Africa in an attempt to increase the sterility of their instruments.
Stay tuned to hear her story.
