FOR THE SECOND YEAR, 

you'll have the opportunity to "cream" the willing participants from the Vernon Hills Police Department!  We're thrilled to welcome our Guest of Honor - Nathan Gillespie - the son of Officer Andrew Gillespie and wife Kaline.  

Nathan was diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome (AS) in 2014 at the age of 28 months. Angelman Syndrome (AS) is a rare neurogenetic disorder affecting approximately 1 in 15,000 live births. Individuals with AS typically have balance issues, motor impairment, and debilitating seizures. Some patients never walk and most do not speak.  Nathan is a happy, loving, and determined little boy, even through seizures, endless doctor & therapy appointments.  He works hard every day to keep up with his two siblings! 

Summer Cel is honored to support Nathan and the Foundation for Angleman's Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST).  For more information on Nathan or to submit a donation, please click here.
