Pohanka Pays It Forward Again

I have an incredible story for you if you would be interested...just in time for child abuse prevention month. This is a brief summary of Mason:
On March 3rd, 2015 Baby Mason was taking to AI duPont Hospital for brain injury due to Shaken Baby Syndrome. The doctors have had to remove a piece of his skull in order to relieve some of the pressure off of his brain. At this time the doctors have stated that Baby Mason may not make it, but with prayers and lots of love there is always a chance the doctors can be wrong. If Baby Mason makes it thru this he will never be the same little boy, he will be a special needs child. Mason and his 4 year old brother, Cody were in the care of their mother and boyfriend when this happened. At a benefit for Mason I had the opportunity to meet Jeremy and his family and they are truly amazing people!! I have been in touch with a young woman at a car dealership that are going to donate a car to Jeremy and his boys. The donation is suppose to happen 3/31/2015.

This is a quote from Meghan at the car dealership:

We started Pohanka Pays it Forward almost ten years ago and have raised over $1 million for our community and non profits. I have the honor of working for an AMAZING company! Not only that, I have the honor of calling the VP and founder of "Pohanka Pays it Forward" my mother. It's so nice that I can call her in the middle of the night to let her know I really want to give a car to Baby Masons dad and all she says is "okay, make it happen".

This is the person to contact about the car:

Meghan Fitzgerald-Kenney is the one I spoke with and also had asked Jeremy message him, which she said he did. This is the dealership Pohanka Auto Group in Salisbury Maryland.

This is his father and you can track Mason's recovery thus far:
Jeremy Sennhauser

This is Jeremy's Aunt, Angel Calloway's number. She is who you contact to get in touch with Jeremy. The family is wanting to share their story and raise awareness to SBS. They do not want to see another child go through what Mason is going through.

I should have introduced myself. My name is Pamela Prichard, I am with a child abuse awareness and prevention group called Scotty's Warriors. I really hope you can and will do this story, or possible know someone that will! Thank you for your consideration.

God Bless,
Pamela Prichard

*** Jeremy and his family is from the Delmarva area***

Thank you to the great great folks at Pohanka. I read Jeremy's plea last night for reliable transportation and it broke my heart that for all he has to worry about now transportation was becoming an issue.
