Please Help My Mom Get Her Legs Back
My name is Teale (like the color) and I created this page for my Mom.
Two months ago her custom built wheelchair was stolen, practically right out from under her. She was attending a community picnic when she started to feel ill and went to lie down in the car. While she was resting with her eyes closed, someone stole her wheelchair. It was parked mere feet from where she was resting!
I don't know what type of person would do such a thing... They must have really needed help. What they didn't understand was the impact their decision would have on my entire family.
My Mom was in an accident 16 years ago that left the right side of her body crippled. Her right hip was wrenched from the socket and she couldn't receive proper medical treatment at the time. As a result, the muscles and tissue "healed" in a way that made it impossible for her to ever walk again.
She spend the next 15 years living in bed, Willy Wonka style. That is, until she was finally able to get a custom built wheelchair built to her exact specifications. It was a miracle: by lowering and changing the depth of the seat, she could actually push herself around. It gave her complete mobility and independence to start living her life again.
Since this happened, she has tried other wheelchairs, but they cut off circulation to her legs. As a result, she is back in bed... and I am afraid she thinks it is for good this time.
Please help my Mom get her legs back. The cost of a new custom built wheelchair is $1,996. Any and ALL donations are appreciated! If you can't afford to donate money, then please donate your time. Share this post with everyone you know! Post it on Facebook! Or Twitter! Anywhere people might see it and want to get involved.
Thank you for reading this and giving of yourself to help my Mom. <3
All my love,
