Tamara F.

Service Facilitator
Tamara is a local girl from Central Virginia. Her and her husband are the proud parents of two beautiful children. She currently has an A.A.S in Respiratory Therapy as well as her LPN. In 2015, Tamara had a sweet baby girl that was born prematurely at 24weeks pregnant. This is where her journey in special needs began. The journey for this little girl was the changing point in her family’s life. The baby girl became vent dependent and had to have a tracheostomy done. She was also diagnosed G-Tube dependent. After 10 months of being hospitalized she finally came home. The tracheostomy was later removed and she was diagnosed with seizures disorder and Cerebral Palsy. Having a total care child proved to have its difficulties, but her and her family fought through. After receiving help and guidance from Moms in Motions, Tamara felt that she needed to give back. She knows the resources and opportunities that are available first hand and she wants to make sure that other families know that there are places to turn for help and that they aren’t alone.
