Jackie Schwartz with Army Specialist, Cas Werda
You may remember an event we held last spring for Army Specialist Cas Werda, a 25-year-old from Novi, who was blinded while serving our country in Iraq. During that one-day event, we raised enough money to furnish his family room and living room.
Fast forward to last week when our team had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with Cas and many members of his family as we decorated his Christmas tree and added some holiday touches to his family room and kitchen.
Cas is a very special person and his message of being happy and appreciating what you have is always a precious reminder.
Emily, Cas and Natalie
Some really special Girl Scouts brought ornaments their troop made with a focus on holiday smells and sounds so Cas can enjoy them. The 5th grade troop made glittery, cinnamon scented pine cones and pipe cleaner trees with bells.
Flo and Cas Werda
Cas and his mother Flo took a quiet moment to appreciate the decorations.
The story was featured on FOX 2 and was such a warm way to start the holiday season.
