An accessible van for Tamandra and her Service dog Justice True... not just four wheels, but restored independence!
Tamandra has always been an active, independent gal who doesn't let anything hold her back. Born with Spina Bifida she's been paralyzed since birth, but her live- life-to-the-fullest attitude is truly inspiring. She’s a gifted photographer who gives back to the world by photographing homeless animals, and pets at the end of their lives. And her joyful, competitive spirit has taken her and her service dog into high-level sport competition and training. Her life is SO FULL…except she’s quickly losing the life she’s always strived for due to chronic pain from lifting herself in and out of her car. Her loss of freedom and the ability to work because of her vehicle breaks my heart. I’m not in a position to help financially, dealing with my own fight with cancer, so I’m starting “Team Tamandra” to fund a gently used ramp van. Tamandra is such an asset to the community, has so much left to give. If enough of us give just a small amount, even share with people we know, it can add up to a miracle!
