When my family lived in Overland Park, KS, a suburb of Kansas City, I made some of the best friends a girl could ever have. We have affectionately named our little group of friends "The Ladies' Lounge", which was a name created during one of our many lake trips about 15 of us take several times a year (though my visits have become less frequent due to the 600 mile separation).
During our few years living in OP, my friend Shelley, and her husband Merrill, had baby #2. His name is Lyman and he was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis before even coming home from the hospital. During that diagnosis, Merrill was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and now needs assistance to walk. (You won't hear them talk much about that, though, because they focus mostly on Lyman and their older son!)
If you are interested in learning more about Lyman and his amazing family and what you can do to help, please watch the following video their family put together. Thanks! (You will need to pause the music on the left hand side.) You can also visit their website at Statonville.
