The Arc of Tucson, an advocacy organization for people and children with disabilities, delivered this e-mail today about how to send Ron Barber, U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' district director who was injured on Saturday, good wishes during his recovery:
Dear Arc Members and Friends:
As many of you know, our longtime friend and highly respected advocate for persons with disabilities, Ron Barber , was shot in Saturday's tragic event. Many of you have asked for some information on his medical condition and now there is way for you to keep updated. And, best of all, you can send him your personal messages, which I encourage you to do.
Go to www.CaringBridge.org and register your name and email. There are no fees or hidden tricks with registering with CaringBridge. You will receive a return email confirming your email address, and then you can go to the site anytime and click on "Visit". A box comes up and you will type in ronbarber - this will take you to his personal page where you can read about him and post personal messages.
All of us at The Arc of Tucson are keeping Ron and his family, as well as Gabrielle Giffords and others involved, in our prayers and I encourage you all to do the same.
