Ann has been a tireless advocate for her daughter Chrissy, who was diagnosed with Ataxic Cerebral Palsy and a seizure disorder when she was almost a year old.

Chrissy was born in the 1970’s when there were few resources. There was little area support for for Ann or Chrissy, so Ann created her own program, and parent network. She lobbied and joined the legislative coalition. She was laughed at, people told her she would never succeed or get funding for her program. Ann proved them wrong.
