Our Story

Emery Aders is a fun, energetic and smiley six year old boy with Cerebral Palsey. He was born with a severe brain injury from lack of oxygen which later resulted in motor function delays. Despite the challenges he faces daily due to his body's limitations he has a bright, loving personality and strives for independence. Because of Emery's severe brain injury he spent the first two months of his life in the NICU. He had swallowing issues and had surgery to place a g-tube (feeding tube) in his stomach. Looking at Emery's MRI results of his brainscan, Doctors and nurses did not have high expectations for his abilities and quality of life.  After being home and receiving early intervention for Emery we got to work and are proud to say that he has exceeded doctors expectations. Emery is able to combat crawl and roll on his own, he is sitting with minimal assistance, walks with assistance, swallows well, repeats some words and laughs a ton. He also loves adventure, music, dancing, playing, and spending time with family. His Joy radiates and fills others with joy! He is Amazing and nothing short of a miracle! 

About The United Angels Foundation

United Angels Foundation (UAF) is a nonprofit, parent-to-parent support group for families of children with special needs (our Angels). UAF believes that the most effective way to support these children is by supporting the parents and guardians who are raising them. Our main goals at UAF are to provide interaction, education, and resources to our parents. We implement these goals through our newborn visits and packets, online chat forums, parent educational seminars, parent lunches, "Mom's Night Out", and youth and family activities. Funds raised from the Walk with Angels event will specifically go towards financing our educational seminars, activities (including Freedom at the Pool, Hee Haws, and our annual Christmas party, as well as age-related activities), and to administer our newborn and new member program. Please join us in advocating for all the angels in our community!
