Judy has been a quadriplegic for about 9 years after she got into a car accident. During this time, she has not been able to get much further than a little over an hour away from her house because of her unstable van. She owned a 1993 Dodge handicap van for almost the same amount of time that she's been in a wheelchair. Unfortunately, there was just too much work needed on the van, so she no longer owns it.
Judy needs a van at least a couple times a week for grocery shopping or visiting family and friends. Every Friday, she volunteers her time to run a trivia program at an elderly care facility. Judy is inspiring in this way because she doesn't let her disability hold her back from giving back to her community.
She would love to see more of the country and hopes to someday make it to Seattle (just a few hours away) without having a van break down. It would be a fantastic gift to Judy if we could raise enough money to buy a functioning van!
