She's leaving behind 3 kids, including a young teenage girl, & her husband who hasn't left her bed side has missed a lot of work to make sure she knew he was by her side every step of the way.  Her condition is serious and all we can do is wait.

The Mission:
 http://www.virtualphotowalks.org/donate/
Funding for VPW mainly comes from John Butterill
Virtual Photo Walks Inc is a 501c3 public charity in the USA.
Virtual Photo Walks™ mission is to thus enable those who are immobilized by disability, illness or age to escape their isolation and re-engage with society virtually. Those whom we will service learn to use mobile video chat tools to virtually participate in events in selected locations around the world and then use those same tools to engage with their family and friends and to more efficiently interact with their caregivers.

An amazing mission. If you can support this work in any way, you will be doing a very heartwarming thing.

A song that captures the emotions of what Virtual Photo Walks does some get get it but not many.
To Know, To Care, To Act (original) by Tim Behrens (virtualphotowalks.org). I had a great time writing this song, and have been thinking about a stripped down version that recalled the original idea as I was reacting to the VPW videos and hearing the stories for the first time. Tonight, for whatever reason, it came into my mind. I flipped on a camera, powered up Cubase, and hit record. Hope you like it, and that you'll take a moment to visit virtualphotowalks.org

Join Virtual Photo Walks with Dr Ergin Kocyildirim +Ergin Kocyildirim as we take a step back in time on a century-old cable car and see the best views of downtown Pittsburgh while riding one of the few remaining inclines in the country. Opened on May 20, 1877, the Duquesne Incline was rescued and restored by a group of local residents in 1963 and still delights residents and visitors with its original, elegant, wooden cable cars.

If you would like to join us on a +Virtual Photo Walks™ or know some one who would please contact us http://VirtualPhotoWalks.org to learn how.
