Hey Everyone!!! I hope all have had a great holiday season. We've been doing some planning on our end for the boys, and families, to have some fun.

Please join us on Saturday, February 6th to see the Houston Rockets play the Philadelphia 76ers at the Toyota Center. Not only will you get to see a great game, but the entire PPMD group has been invited down to court level before the game to meet a few players. We must all be there and be ready to go to court level at 6 p.m. sharp. The game starts at 7:30. Tickets are just $10 each. Our reserved section also includes 6 wheelchair locations with 6 companion seats. If we need more, we can get more, but we need to know ASAP.

We need to let ticketing know exactly how many tickets we need, so don't wait. Give us a call or shoot us an email to let us know your plans. If you have any questions, you can always contact me or Rachel.

What a fun gathering Saturday. It was great to see everyone and share information we learned at the conference. That was some yummy BBQ... thanks Rachel and James for hosting us.

Howdy, everyone. We live in College Station but visit Houston often. I'm looking forward to attending some FACES events and meeting other families. :)

I am in North Texas, not South Texas, but wonder if anyone is taking their sons to Dr. Iannacone at Children's Hospital of Dallas.
