Let's get a van for Candice Robbins
Organized by: Lisa Ostler
Candice Robbins is a 30 year old mother. This amazing woman has battled more than her fair of challenges in life. She was born with Cerebral Palsy. She's been confined to a wheelchair since the age of 3. It was only a few short years ago that she had an accessible vehicle that allowed her to participate in life like she'd never done before. In the disabled world there are few positives and every gain in live is a battle. On Aug 25 she was delt a pretty big blow. Thoughs that know her have heard the crazy story about what happened to Candi'so van at Imperial Car Wash. Attendant got in the van... lost control and totalled it. As ridiculous as it sounds the Car Wash is only responsible for the "value " of the van. This doesn't even cover the cost of a new lift. After 2 weeks of research I found a van that is reasonable enough that I'm not embarrassed to ask for help. Most were 40k+. It's awkward to ask but this is not a simple thing. Without this (a) vehicle.... Candi can't get to store...take Joseph to preschool...get to the hospital...to church...etc. Imagine loosing these simple freedoms when you're already limited to a wheelchair. Help us meet our goal and get our family mobile again!
