Bradenton, FL (LifeNews.com) — Pam Tebow, the courageous mother of Tim Tebow, with whom she stars in a widely-anticipated Super Bowl ad, will further share her story of how she decided against an abortion. She is expected to be the keynote speaker at two different events for organizations that help pregnant women.
Tebow’s story has garnered national attention because of the upcoming ad before and during the Super Bowl that will focus on how she decided against an abortion when doctors suggested she have one.
Pam entered into a coma after she contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite found in a contaminated food or drink. The treatment for the medical condition would require strong medications that doctors told Pam had caused irreversible damage to Tim — so they advised her to have an abortion.
She decided against it and now a Focus on the Family ad has generated national buzz.
Tebow will share her story March 13 as the featured speaker at the Manasota SOLVE annual gala in Bradenton, Florida.
News of Tebow speaking has already forced the maternity home to move the banquet to a larger venue — the Fete Ballroom at the Polo Grill in Lakewood Ranch.
"We are most excited to have Pam Tebow speak at our Gala," Peggy Kerwin, the assistant director of Manasota Solve, told LifeNews.com today. "Her personal story of courage resonates the mission of SOLVE perfectly. Each and every life is precious and contains marvelous possibility when given the opportunity."
SOLVE is a group of maternity homes in Bradenton and Venice and they are a refuge for women needing housing during pregnancy and beyond. Each woman participates in programs that are spiritually-based and help empower them as mothers, SOLVE says on its web site.
The event is billed with the slogan, "Imagine the Possibilities."
Meanwhile, Pam Tebow will also speak at the Chattanooga Convention Center on April 9 in this large Tennessee city.
She will relate her life experiences as a mother, a missionary, and a teacher while speaking at the Go Family Spring benefit banquet for Bethany Christian Services of Greater Chattanooga.
Bethany Christian Services is a non-profit organization that provides adoption and orphan care services through a national network of over 80 locations and is licensed in more than 30 states.
In addition, Bethany’s adoption program extends to 12 other countries. Since 1982, Bethany has found permanent families for more than 11,000 children growing up in orphanages in Haiti, Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Africa.
