THE STORY:

"SHOES FOR SHARON" Sharon Lippman,a productive artist,art historian,curator,teacher,and Executive Director of Art Without Walls,Inc.,ten years ago in route to the Post Office,picking up art work from artists with disabilities,a big black pickup truck passed a red light pushing Sharon's automobile into a utility pole. Sharon was thrown into the front windshield resulting in a dislocated pelvis and spine. Sharon was not diagnosed properly for several years while her pelvis was allowed to remain dislocated,causing her back to progress into scoliosis,and causing her right leg to become 5" shorter . In order,to correct her balance ,Sharon was fitted for orthopedic prosthetic lifts on her shoes. Art Without Walls,Inc.,established in 1985 is a nonprofit art/health organization that is devoted to creating original art therapy,art,cultural,educational programs for the terminally ill and disabled community. In addition ,for over 39 years Sharon has been teaching art/art history to children and adults that are mainstream and autistic. Taking students to NYC to Museums,backstage tours of Broadway shows,meeting Art and Fashion icons as,Tommy Hilfiger,Donna Karen,Peter Max,Todd Oldman,Todd McFallen ,visits to DC Comics,Mad Magazine,Marvel Comics. Although Sharon provided an unique art education for children and teens,financially she never made enough to have extras ,pay into Social Security,Medical Insurance,IRA's etc.;she always lived on a financial tightrope ,while helping others. Due to the auto accident,Sharon now is dependent to SS I-Disability ,and Medicaid which does not cover orthopedic shoes or the prosthetic lifts. Her shoes are worn out as well as her lifts . Sharon needs $500 for two pairs of shoes and $500 for the prosthetic lifts for both pairs.
