Pam Tebow helps kick off Image Point Mobile Medical Services
YAKIMA, Wash. — Pam Tebow, mother of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow and long-time pro-life advocate, spoke at the inaugural fundraising luncheon for Image Point Mobile Medical Services at the Yakima Convention Center this afternoon. Nearly 1,000 people from across Central Washington turned out to support the launch of the region’s newest life-centered medical ministry.
Image Point founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors, Lenette Lindemann said the show of support was a blessing.
“We are honored that so many people came from so far away to be a part of our kickoff event,” Lindemann said. “It was a truly humbling experience.”
Tebow talked for about 45 minutes moving between tales of missionary adventures in far off lands, her family’s experiences with her son’s football career and the intensely personal decision to end medical treatment instead of ending her pregnancy. “We have a master that loves babies and he loves families,” Tebow said.
The goal of the fundraiser was to generate enough funds to buy and retrofit a mobile medical unit with an examination room complete with state-of-the-art ultrasound equipment.
“This mobile unit is all about life,” Tebow said. “(It) will tell the other side of the story.”
Lindemann said the Knights of Columbus are working at state and local levels to help purchase of the ultrasound sound.
“According to national statistics 85% of women who see an ultrasound image of their unborn baby will make a decision for life.” Lindemann said.
After the event ended Tebow spent another hour greeting attendees, signing autographs and posing for pictures.
“This is a ministry of servants,” Tebow said. “There will be a place for you.”
