What is the Reach For Me Network
by Founder Michael A. Boylan
Welcome to Reach For Me! The first nationwide network designed just for parents and related caregivers of special-needs children, regardless of their child's diagnosis—cognitive and/or physical, youth or adult. A network of parents of special-needs children with diabetes, autism, ADHD, Asperger's, epilepsy, Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, blindness, and numerous other cognitive and/or physical diagnoses. A community of caregivers with much in common and a desire to help one another by sharing our stories, personal experiences, challenges and information, creating a trusted blanket of emotional support, empowerment, friendship and inspiration.
A community of caregivers who understand the journey because we live it, inspiring one another to move forward during the sometimes ultra-challenging times we all face—while saving money on products and services we typically purchase by banding together and using that leverage to gain better pricing as members of Reach For Me. A community of empathy, respect and support—and we hope you'll join us!
If you want this network to be a reality for the millions of us in the United States and around the world who are caregivers of special-needs children, please take action now, by doing the following three things:
If one million caregivers do these things ASAP, we will have reached our initial goal and will begin using that leverage to negotiate better pricing from corporations trying to sell us their products (e.g., life insurance, health insurance, medications)—and build out the initial services on the network for our members' benefit. And we'll more than likely be welcomed at the White House and able to present to Congress the top 10 issues we want addressed! It's simple and straightforward. Be a founding member of this movement to get support and respite for caregivers of special-needs children!
Share this web page with every parent, friend, extended family member, church member and co-worker caring for a special-needs child. We must unite and help one another through our shared experiences and through the leverage we will have once we've banded together as one unified voice. Imagine the power of one unified voice!
