Hello Flex Performance Group Families,
We have a wonderful performance opportunity that has recently come our way. North Eugene Dance Team is holding a second showcase to honor and support their head coach Angie Bunday. This is the email we received and would be honored to support such a deserving family.
”For those of you who don’t know me or are unfamiliar with my position, my name is Alexa and I am an assistant for the North Eugene High School Dance Team. I have also been filling in for Angie Bunday, our head coach, while she has been on maternity leave. This year, we are adding a second showcase to our annual holiday bazaar but for a special cause. This showcase will be a huge celebration for our head coach and her family and all of the proceeds will go to supporting them through this hard time. We chose to surprise Angie with this news last Friday and emotions were very high with how grateful she was that something she’s so dedicated to could show support to her and her family. Belle Murray and I along with the help of some amazing parents are going to be organizing the day to make it extra special for Angie.”
“On September 19th, Dustin and Angie welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world. Amelia has a complete unilateral cleft lip and palate and Van der Woude Syndrome. The care of Amelia is much more than most babies. She needs to have facial taping/bands, a Nasoalveolar Molding Device (NAM), feeding equipment, weekly appointments at OHSU in Portland, and will have two major reconstructive surgeries in the first year of her life. Her high levels of care will continue throughout her life. The medical expenses have already begun to add up not to mention the time commitment needed to care for sweet Amelia. Additional unpaid time off of work is needed in addition to the normal maternity leave. Angie has been very open about their experiences on social media and I’m sure would be more than happy to answer any other questions anyone would have regarding her family.”
