THE ASTROLOGY RESEARCHER IS BACK !
The first issue of The Astrology Researcher was published in 1977. Back then, there was only printed matter and "snail-mail". Today, we have a rebirth of the Astrollogy Researcher for the digital age, with special reports on everything from sports to stocks. Also available, will be free research reports on everything from Earthquakes to weather. We will give you an inside look at what will be available, very shortly.
This site was started as a fundraiser for Promise In Brevard. Every cycle of life brings on a new or return of an old birth defect. Today, we see a rise in Autism. In the 1970's, in was Spina Bifida. My son was born with Spina Bifida. The first experience comes with the financial responsibility. Tom had 33 operations within 17 years, at a cost of over $1 million. At the time of his birth. Everything that was saved for a new home went to medical costs...but it was well worth it.
With the help of the Florida Elks, Harry-Anna Hospital (Florida Elks Children's Hospital) provided the love and care through all of his operations. Thanks to research, Spina Bifida has almost been erradicated, and Florida Elks Children's Hospital was able to close in 1999.
The first thing a parent thinks about is, what their child's life will be like after they pass away. In researching what was available, I found a place in Ohio that was working with people with Autism, and Down Syndrome, providing them with a place to work and live.
Pictured at left is Tom [in 1981] at age 9, on the front page of the sports section in The Orlando Sentinel. At this age, they are already stereotyped, saying they will never be able to function in the real world. I can remember, when I visited his Junior High School. His teacher calling us in, telling us that our hopes of him going into a computer class would only disappoint us. In other words, she was trying to tell us that he would only be like a vegatable, and would never learn how to spell or type. My wife left, crying, and started to teach him how to type. He reached the age that he wanted to start working. They had an opening at Walt Disney World, as a customer service rep. He passed their typing and written tests, far past their expectations.
To get by the discrimination law, they offered him half-time with no benefit package. Next, he did apply and get a job with a travel agency, and was ready to start, but the owner called and said the interviewer made a mistake. Disabled people are profiled, before they even apply for a job.
Today, Tom manages the website and handles correspondence for me.
Betsy Farmer of Melbourne, Florida shows us that one person can make a difference. Her son was born with Down Syndrome, and her dream was to build a place where those with special
needs could live and work in a happy environment for the rest of their lives.
All the reports that you purchased from this site--and the donations--have gone to help make this dream a reality, and hopefully be an influence on other states to create this envirtonment. On December 12, 2014, the State of Florida has awarded Promise in Brevard $15.8 million in tax credits, and groundbreaking is slated for July 2015.
I've been involved with fundraisers for Breast Cancer, MS, and Parkinson's disease, and these people are all dedicated in their passion to help others.
In 2015, we plan to give you predictions for stocks and commodities. We want to thank you all for your donations and participation in making everone involved with Promise in Brevard, very....
