Call to the gymternet!  The delightful Deanne Soza has contracted a very serious eye infection, which affects obviously not only her gymnastics, but potentially her ability to see. 
So what can we do?
I’m hoping that maybe we can send her something to cheer her up a little.  My idea is to take pictures that you, the amazing gymternet, take/draw/create and put those onto a card for her. 
Maybe it’s a picture of a get well sign that you’re holding up for her, maybe it’s a drawing of her you made while you were bored in class, maybe it’s one of those fancy edits that all the kids are doing these days.  Whatever you would like to share that is appropriate and uplifting. 
There is room for about 30 pictures on the card.  Perhaps if we get billions of fabulous submissions, we’ll send more cards.  But for now it would be awesome if we could put 30 pictures on this card, and send it to Arete. 
If you’d like to participate, and I hope that you do because Deanne is incredible, either post your picture here, or email it to me at spannytampson@gmail.com. 
GO GYMTERNET GO!

gymfanconfessions:

Her brother bought a bicycle to take her but it broke sometimes.
 Her mother had to borrow money to buy food and there was no money left for anything else, the clothes she had were donated by people who knew her. The gym she went was a public one and the breakfast that was left was donated to her family.
 Her coach, Keli Kitaura, knew that Rebecca had talent so she asked her mother if she (Rebecca) could live with her, so she wouldn’t miss practices anymore. They lived together for some time, but Keli had to move to Curitiba, a city far away from where they were living.
 When she was settled in, Rebecca moved there and after some time Keli was hired by Flamengo (where Jade, the Hypolitos and a huge part of brazilian team go) and they both moved again. Now she and other 9 girls live with Keli and her husband.
 She also has a contract with a telecommunications company and a salary of Flamengo, the brazilian team and bolsa atleta, a government assistance to athletes. With that money she helps her mother that doesn’t have any more depts and her 3 siblings are also doing gymnastics. 
 Just thought you all should know it :)
