Stacks Image 5087
The First Annual Moonbeam Caregiver award was granted to Ethan’s first caregiver and daycare provider, Lori Peickert, on September 6th, 2014. Recognizing the unique strengths and challenges of individuals with Batten Disease and Rare Disease, exceptional caregivers go above and beyond, or should we say, “to the moon and back,” to provide care with the utmost compassion, respect, and focus on quality of life. This award will be presented annually to a special caregiver of individuals with Batten Disease or Rare disease who exemplifies "a shining example of caring and compassion" and who strive to bring more time, hope and adventure to those whose lives they touch.
