On September 29th, Widerman Malek, PL supported the Nana’s House Fundraising Banquet by sponsoring a table at the Crowne Plaza Melbourne Oceanfront Hotel. Friends and firm members had a wonderful time supporting Nana’s House along with board member Scott Dixon and his wife Gosia. Nana’s House is a group children’s home for neglected, abused, needy, or abandoned children, newborn to 11 years old. The mission of Nana’s House is to provide a safe, secure, loving home where these children can come and experience God’s love and healing. These children will be provided for in every manner. If you wish to donate, please visit Nana’s House to learn more.

On August 31, 2016, two members of the Widerman Malek team, Mark Warzecha (partner) and Daniel Davidson, on behalf of the firm’s not-for-profit, No Bad Days Foundation, visited Ability Plus Therapy to present Liam two therapy items that will hopefully bring some relief to him and his mom.

Liam, who is autistic and suffers from congenital pulmonary valve stenosis, tachycardia and cardiac arrhythmia, received a weighted compression vest and an air “wiggle” cushion. Although it does not seem like much, these two items can help make his daily life less of a struggle. The vest which is adorned with one of his favorite animals helps him feel secure and comfortable in his environment. Before the vest, Liam was unable to control himself and would run into walls and other objects, hurting himself and sometimes others. Similarly, the air cushion is used to avert him from kicking while he eats or interacts with others.

It was a sincere pleasure to meet Liam, and the No Bad Days Foundation is pleased it was able to continue to do what it set out to do. Here are some pictures of Liam in action with his new vest and cushion!
