THE STORY:

Yolanda is one warrior of a woman! She was in a terrible car accident many years ago which resulted in her becoming wheelchair bound. This woman has never let her inability to walk stop her from living her life and pursuing her dreams. After so many years relying on her arms in place of her legs, her shoulders are wearing out. Yolanda is a single woman who lives alone and transfers herself in and out of her chair multiple times a day. A typical morning starts with a transfer from bed to chair, then from chair to bath, back to chair, back to the bed to dress, back into the chair to the car, into the car, drive to work and transfer out of the car and into the office. Just think if you had to transfer your ENTIRE body weight in this fashion, at least 10 times a day? Her doctor has requested that she have shoulder surgery and do both shoulders at the same time. This is TERRIFYING to her due to the fact she would be COMPLETELY unable to care for herself during recovery and the chance that something was to go wrong, she would be incapacitated for the rest of her life!

Our goal is to raise 20,000 dollars to fund a wheel chair accessible van, a power wheelchair and other daily living aids, for this amazing woman who has lived this way, raising 3 children alone, rarely asking for help, for over 25 years. This new accessible van, power chair and other equipment, would drastically improve the quality of Yolanda's life, easing the burden on the shoulders, allowing her to continue working and feel the dignity of daily contribution to others.
