This is a blog entry about an amazing woman and her daughter, and an amazing school called Zareinu. Kinda like three-stories-in-one!!

Lets start off with the story about the amazing woman and her daughter: Stacy is the mother of Shayna who is now 15, and a set of twins who are 11.

When Shayna was born, it was soon determined that she had numerous physical and cognitive challenges.

But you can see from the photo below that Shayna is WALKING and SMILING.

How Awesome!!

Now lets talk about the amazing school that Shayna went to called Zareinu (zah ray nu).  It’s the only facility in North America that houses education and a treatment centre all under one roof. This means that Shayna received an education and all her physical, occupational, speech therapy and more at the same location.

Stacy was told by doctors that Shayna would probably never walk. But Shayna started going to Zareinu when she was less than a year old and due to the amazing therapists…Shayna is walking and even running. It’s truly a world class facility.

Back to Stacy: She is so passionate about this school that she has chaired an annual fundraising event for the last 7 years together with her devoted co-chair Renee Rosenzweig. It’s a major first class Fashion Show production with major personalities and fashions..(think Jeanne Beker, Senator Linda Frum, Royal Ontario Museum, High End Fashion). It’s taking place on Tuesday Nov 16th, the vip cocktail reception begins at 7p.m. and the fashion show will start at 8 p.m..

Even though Shayna has graduated from Zareinu, Stacy still chairs this event and still sits on the board of directors.

How awesome is that?

I encourage everyone reading this blog to please click on Zareinu ,so you can read more about this awesome event and awesome school.

Hope to see you on November 16th!!
