When they write and publish their own stories, they are careful to use People First Language. However, they hesitate changing the language used in the original stories because they don’t want to sugar-coat reality for their readers. Instead, they want the magazine readers to freely express “I do or don’t like how that is written.”

The new site has really created a follow among the roughly 166,000 with spina bifida in the U.S. alone.  

Here is what readers are saying...

I cannot thank you enough for including baby Dot among your Famous Faces of Spina Bifida.Indeed she is “living an exemplary life” (and she was very honored to be included alongside John Mellencamp, Hank Williams, Sr., and Frida Kahlo!). She is a remarkable little soul, and I hope her journey is an encouragement to your wonderful readers.

Alyson, thank you so much for singing Dot’s song on, and for encouraging folks to sponsor her. We are blessed to have you and your team in the Tabby’s Place family. I have attached some even more recent photos of Dot.
Thank you again, and God bless you!
Warmly, Angela, Development Director, Tabby’s Place
