Hello,

I am a former Clinical Research Nurse of Oncology who is a Paraplegic from the waist down!  I have only been a Paraplegic for a year & a half!  My doctors told me after seeing my X-rays & MRI --after losing my balance , falling with no warning, and no feeling from the feet up to my abdomen; that I had Bone Spurs imbedding in my spine especially in the rib area both front & back(for those medically inclined--it is from T3-S1)! I had the surgery which resulted with me ending up a Paraplegic from the waist down to my feet.  I have undergone 5 more surgeries since then!  My Neurosurgeons have no hope for me ever walking .  I have a hope  that I will! 

I currently am at home being taken care by my husband, youngest daughter , & a CNA 3x/week!  We use my my youngest daughters car (2001 Volvo) to get me to doctors appointments & church!  I would like to be able to give back my daughters car without racking up the miles!  I would also like to attend my eldest daughters college graduation in 5/2016 (her school is 5 hours from our home)!  My husbands car is a truck!  The problem I have I can't  transfer my body up from a wheelchair.  I can only transfer myself with a transfer board in a car that is close to the height of my wheelchair!  I ask for you that care get me to my goal to my dream of buying my Handicap Accessible Van!

Thank you for taking the time to read my story!

God Bless You All!
