Isaac Donaldson might be a little fellow of few words, but his excitement was evident as he told his mother that "today was the best day ever," while leaving the Masontown-German Park on July 30 in Masontown, Pennsylvania.

The elated words came after the seven-year-old boy with Chiari got to meet two of his heroes - Masontown police officer and K-9 handler Mike Yeager and K-9 Brony.

Dear readers,

The International Chiari Association (ICA) is honored to receive "thank you" e-mails every day from people all over the world. There are 33 people (board members and advisors combined) on the ICA team and I enter each day with extra confidence because I know that they have my back.

I often tell people that the ICA, which was founded in 2011, has already assisted people in 108 countries. We are an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that has filled many needs because so many things that we have already accomplished had never been done before.

Jamie Harris is constructing a quilt with patches made by Chiari sufferers. The quilt will be in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 11-12 to promote Chiari Awareness.

"To be included, you can make your own square or I can send you a square if you send me your address," Harris told the ICA Newsroom. "Squares should be an 8x8 inch square. It should have the patient's name and the year diagnosed. The design is up to the individual."

One square per patient. If the square is for a Chiari Angel, just let Harris know in the envelope.
