[This article is an Op-Ed piece written by the congresswomen shot in the head in Tucson Arizona three years ago. Her article focuses on the process of rehabilitation and her fight for increased gun control. NFOSD has no stated position on gun control. Mrs. Gifford’s thoughts on rehabilitation and resolve to form a community to advocate for change resonated with me. In turn, my hope, is it resonates with our community of patients, caregivers, and the exceptional healthcare professionals involved in each of our ongoing rehabilitation efforts along with our drive to create a community to increase dysphagia awareness and the research required to provide improved health outcomes for millions of suffering Americans. Ed Steger, President, NFOSD.]

(CNN) — Chelsea Wheeler is a 10-year-old girl with a passion and a plan.
“I want to have a diner,” she says, sitting on her bed in her parents’ house in Oxford, Connecticut.
“I’d like to make things that people think are yummy healthier, less fatty, and make it like they’re being cooked for the Queen.”
The State University of New York (SUNY) New Paltz chapter of the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) is conducting a series of fund raisers for the National Foundation of Swallowing Disorders (NFOSD).
The second event is scheduled for Thursday October 24, 2013 at “McGillicuddy’s” from 5 – 9 PM. Ten percent of all dining sales will go to the NFOSD. Thank you McGillicuddy’s and thank you SUNY NSSHLA.
