  • Kimberly

    "I want to thank you for the wheelchair you have lent me and tell you how it has impacted me. It enabled me to go to the therapy room and get PT & OT that I would not have had if I had been bed-bound. It enabled me to interact with other patients, which was very healing. I learned a card game from a gentleman - that was fun! He would ask the therapists if I was coming to therapy that day. The therapy room has lots of window and light which was a tremendous pick me up. The chair gave me independence. I was able to go outside and enjoy the courtyard and the fresh air. And the wheelchair gave me the privilege of eating my meals up in a chair. Thank you very much for what you have done for me"

    - Kimberly, age 54, living with quadriplegia
