Hannah's Launch Party

Today was Hannah's official launch party at the West Columbia Walmart. We were joined by family, friends, Walmart associates, Aubrey Cichelli from Children's Miracle Network, and representatives from Palmetto Health Hospital. Special guests included Dr. Mac (Hannah's pediatrician), the Mayor of Orangeburg, and Hannah's friends and partners from the High Steppin' Cloggers who opened up the ceremony with a wonderful clogging routine. We would like to give a special thanks to Dr. Mac for her emotional story and very touching gifts to us. Our local Mayor, Paul Miller proclaimed this day as Hannah Bilton Day in Orangeburg County.
We also would like to thank all of our local Orangeburg friends and family for coming out to support Hannah on this special day. It shows just how special and supportive our local Orangeburg community has been and continues to be to our family. Last but not least, a very big thanks to Walmart for our gift card to help us prepare for our upcoming trip. I will try to post a few pictures from this event as soon as I can.
