THE STORY:

Hello my name is Nyree stevens , im trying to raise money for a accessible lifestyle. Im 25 years old on December 25,2009 i was shot in the neck by a stray bullet. A night out with friends "Which i taught would be fun" turn to the worst which left me paralyzed from shoulders and down. Ever since then my life has changed for the better and the worst. Not knowing what people with disabilities go through on a daily basis really opened my eyes.having my mom by myside made it a little easy but last year july she had a heart attack which caused her to lose oxygen to the brain which took a toll on me but im still holding up. The simplest things such as wiping your nose could be the best thing in the world. Not being able to do anything for yourself can be overwhelming. Having your independence means so much...im just glad i still have a voice and im able to share my story and stick up for myself because some people see your disability and think its the end of the world for you. I've been sky diving,water skiing and skiing with my disability the sky is the limit. Im just trying to live more comfortable with my disability such as getting my own vehicle to be able to travel as i please depending on public transportation has been a disaster for me. It cause me to miss plenty of doctor's appointments and family functions. This would also give me more time to visit my mom in the nursing home knowing that I'll be able to get home . Any help would be great thank you
