We love our donors! Every gift is precious. Two unique donors are Ken and Tammy Breau. They have a unique perspective and a personal connection to children with special needs. Ken and Tammy own three Dairy Queens in our community. They recently began the Red Shed initiative that allows charities in our community to use the shed to fund raise. Ken and Tammy have always supported our Lansdowne foundation. Thank you for wonderful gifts and we always enjoy the treats at DQ. In Kens own words he tells us why Lansdowne is so important to the couple. "Tammy and I support Lansdowne simply because Lansdowne helps so many children in Brantford and Brant County that would otherwise be lost and without guidance and training. Children are our future pillars in this community, and we are the elders who must help and guide them to becoming successful mentors to our children’s children." - Kind regards, Ken Breau

"My name is Zoe. I am a 12 year old loving with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a motor neuron disease that affects the voluntary muscles in my body. My condition causes me to have weakness throughout my body and confines me to a power wheelchair to get around. Make no mistake though – I live my life to the fullest! I love spending time with my friends and siblings, love school, camping, baking and so much more. I really love the recreation programs at Lansdowne and have made some great friendships with the other children and staff. This is a place free of judgment that helps me explore my independence and creativity. We are thankful for the programming at the Centre!" - Zo(e) Through these programs, Zoe is able to see that she is not alone. She is free from judgment, and she feels valued, and a sense of belonging. She has made friendships with other children (and even the staff!), explored her creativity and independence, learned new things, and most of all, had so much fun and made so many memories. Along with the rec programs, Zoe also accesses physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and social workers, all of which has helped her tremendously. They have helped our family navigate through endless paperwork to get Zoe all of the equipment and support she needs. "We truly don't know what we do without the help of Lansdowne. Zoe is thrilled to be this year's ambassador so she can show her praise for Lansdowne and all they have done for her and our family." - Mom, Mandy
