Earlier this month SCI-BC drew the winner of its Tyze iPad competition. Valerie Robinson, a SCI-BC Peer from Qualicum Beach, was the lucky winner. Since receiving her prize, Robinson has been able to connect with her friends and family with ease using her iPad and Tyze. Below is a letter SCI-BC received from Valerie this week…
Thank you very much for the iPad that I just won from your association in a recent contest. I have been in the hospital for the past 3 1/2 months and unable to communicate with friends and family around the world. Now that I am out and in a care facility the iPad is allowing me to keep in touch with everyone. It is wonderful and I am enjoying it immensely.
I am excited to have Tyze. With all the changes and people in my life right now, Tyze will assist me with keeping in touch. Now that I have the iPad, I can access Tyze and the important people in my life.
I am an active member with the BCPA and an involved in many of the peer program events such as the peer coffee club, curling, shooting, fishing, dinners and barbecues. They are all very enjoyable events with wonderful people. I will now be able to keep online with all my friends thanks to the iPad.
Once again, thank you very much.
