I have started this page to raise money for my sister so she can purchase a modified van. Let me tell you a little about her... My sister, Elizabeth was born with Spina Bifida. She is paralyzed from the waist down. I can't even begin to count the number of operations she has had over her life. Elizabeth has many health issues and both of her legs have been amputated. Elizabeth struggles with daily activities that I so often take for granted and she rarely complains. She is an amazing person! Elizabeth’s disabilities require her to use a power wheelchair. The chair is large and very heavy, so to be mobile she needs a van with a lift or ramp. She currently has a van that was given to her but the van has a lot of mechanical issues. She was recently stranded on the side of the road and stuck in the van because the lift would not work. A lot of Elizabeth's doctors are in Atlanta so she needs a dependable vehicle. I hope that we can raise enough money through this site and other fundraising efforts to purchase Elizabeth a dependable van and maybe even beyond that. Elizabeth could benefit from many home modifications that would make her life easier. We have looked into programs and grants but everything we have found so far is for people who have a spinal injury and not for people born with Spina Bifida. Please let me know if anyone is aware of programs we can apply for. I thank you in advance for any donation you can give. Your donation will truly make a difference in my sister’s life!
