LATEST RAMP BUILDS
November 19, 2022
Pahrump Valley Rotary second ramp build of the year was for a family from California who moved to Pahrump 6 years ago. Their son Damian was diagnosed with Cerebral palsy at the age of one. Damian has had several surgeries including his eyes , legs and leg extension to help him cope with the handicap. Their currant ramp is too steep and in disrepair for his mother, brother and grandmother to safely move Damian in and out of the house. Damian, now 20, goes to Pahrump High School as a super senior where he receives physical therapy, sells coffee to raise funds for school trips, is developing a home business making snow globs, loves working with his hands and has a very solid outlook of life. Damian feels normal and has experienced surfing and playing t-ball in little league, loves to watch super hero movies and can use a tablet. Rotary has also invited Damian to join interact and their activities in raising funds and developing into young civic minded adults.

We had a small but mighty group help out with the ramp build this past weekend. Thanks go out to Bill, Dave, Cecilia, George, Linda, Jeffrey, Dee, & Barbara. We split up and built the ramp pictured and an additional ramp, a few blocks away, got a new deck and paint. The first house also got some yard cleanup. This was two veterans that were both very appreciative.
