A little about Dawn and Kevin Wanser
Kevin & Dawn’s Story
Dawn & Kevin Wanser began their family in 1992 with their first son Cody. In 1996 Cody was diagnosed with a very rare type of dystrophy when he lost his ability to stand and walk. The devastating news only grew more difficult as the doctors deemed Cody’s illness terminal, giving him only 4-6 years to live. At that moment Dawn made a promise to Cody – they were never going to give up.
So the journey of caregiving began for Dawn. They just had to trust that God was in control, while working endlessly to give Cody the best care possible.
In 2000 Dawn & Kevin welcomed their second son Jacob into the world. With absolute joy Jacob grew as a very healthy, vibrant young boy. In 2006 the Wanser family faced yet another trial when Jacob suffered a Gran Mal Seizure that stopped his breathing. It was truly a blessing that Dawn was trained as a CNA, and had extensive training in CPR and First Aid. She was able to assist in helping her son until paramedics arrived. Later that week it was confirmed Jacob was suffering the same type of illness as Cody.
Dawn has been the boys’ Caregiver for all of their lives. Cody turned 19 years old in October 2011; and Jacob turned 11 in December 2011. The boys are in excellent health despite their diagnosis; and they continue to thrive!
