THE STORY:

                                     

       Maria Cecilia"s Wheels: 

Giving the Gift of Mobility to a Special Grandmother with Lou Gehrig’s disease

My sister Maria Cecilia will be 69 this June.  She is mother of eight children and lives in Brasilia,  Brazil.   Four  years ago Maria  Cecilia my sister received a health report that changed her life:  she was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig ’s disease which is causing her to lose her ability to walk and get around‎. My sister is a wonderful  womam of courage and faith. Nothing,  and I say, nothing  discourages her.  At this point in time, the dease has allowed her to move  only her rigth tumb, whith wich  she comunicates answering  questions : tumb up "yes" tumb down "no". 

She took care of our parents, before they died, doing everything a Caregiver does. Now, two loving and caring are taking care of her.  The cost of home care is high. 


Maria has lost  arm and leg muscles strengths as a result of Lou Gehrig’s Disease and  now she is living the grim reality of being  bound in a hospital bed at home.  

She needs a customized van with wheel chair lift (see photo) to do all the things many people take for granted like going to medical appointments or visit a family member , or her kids. The total cost of the van was $18,000.  which is close to $70,000 in Brazilian money.  Our  family took a loan and purchased the van and  now we  are asking you to  help us  so we  can pay off the loan.  

Maria and our family thanks you in advance with a whole heart for your support.
