Eloise is the mother of 6 with her youngest daughter having Downs Syndrome. One of the scariest phone calls her and her husband Dan received was the day the diagnosis was confirmed. After mourning the child they had envisioned and embraced the child the Lord had blessed them with, she began to go to work to find resources to assist her and give her her best life. Through the working relationship her husband Dan and Dr. Lance shared, she experienced the event that Dr. Lance attended with his life skills class. And when Dr. Lance decided to create Special Forces Sports Day she was blessed for the opportunity to be a part of the organization and to assist in making it a huge success that will help special needs kids for a years to come.
