Wheels for Anna

Organized by: Kelly Gray

THE STORY:

At 14, Anna was the victim of a drunk driving accident. She was paralyzed from the waist down, spent almost a year in ICU, a head brace and undergoing multiple operations. With the support of her community and partner, she grew into an accomplished woman, a wife, and a mother to her eight year old daughter. She works from home, for an overseas exchange student organization, and runs her own business hand crafting aprons for moms and kids. She keeps chickens for eggs, has a dog, dotes on her beautiful home and garden. She'll cook you a meal, make you tea, and her birthday gifts are always handmade. Her home is the home all the neighborhood kids play in. Her passion in life is mothering her daughter, and it shows.
If looking at Anna, you can see that her body works differently, but since she has a wheelchair, much of her life isn't any different than yours or mine. She is able to accomplish the tasks of motherhood, of work, of getting from point A to B. But over the last year her wheelchair has begun to fall apart, and she has become limited in her mobility. The brakes don't work, the seat has fallen apart, the wheels get stuck. This means that she can't stop on an incline, sit comfortably, or go to the beach.
The total cost of the most basic wheelchair that would fit Anna's needs is $5000, and Anna is $1000 short. If you give today, your money will go towards:
Front cadres
Rims
Caster and Tubes
Upholstery
Arm Rests and Anti Tippers

Anna has declined to ask any of her friends or family for financial help. Her ability to provide for herself and her family is essential to her sense of dignity. We are sending this fundraiser to strangers and friends of friends. We aren't looking for big donors, just asking folks to give five, ten or twenty dollars, and sharing this giving opportunity with folks they know.
Thanks for considering.
