Our 9th annual inshore invitational fishing tournament was held on May 7th, 2011.


M-1M-2M-3M-4 Community Hospice’s pediatric program,
Community PedsCare, has chosen Morganne as our dream child for the 9th Annual Fishing for Dreams tournament.Hi. My name is Morganne and I am 16 years old. I am a junior at Creekside High School in St Johns County. After a couple years of being home schooled, I love being back in a regular school! My favorite subject is American Sign Language because my classmates are awesome to work with and they make everyday fun and exciting. I also have a great teacher! I also love video games, TV shows NCIS, Survivor, and the Ellen Show, movies (especially Disney and animated ones), music, and, last but not least, I LOVE the Florida Gators! I love sports, especially football; I watch Sportscenter every morning to catch up on the latest games and news. I am a sports geek! I also would like to believe that I have a good sense of humor. I love making someone else smile.I have two brothers; Ryan is 13 and Ethan is10. They are great younger brothers. Ryan likes games too, and Ethan plays baseball. They are a little crazy sometimes, but I love them! (I’m sure they think I’m crazy at times too!) We also have two dogs Taz and Kally that make me happy.I was born in Denver and have had a number of medical issues through my life. I have scoliosis, and had to have surgery several years ago to fuse my spine. I also have reflux that has required a couple surgeries. And lastly, I have severe respiratory disease. I have a trach to make it easier for me to breathe, and I use a ventilator at night-time.Despite these medical issues, I try to live life to the fullest and I am grateful for everyday I get to wake up and do the things I love!
