Help Anna Norquist buy a safe and current vehicle

Donation protected

We are Anna's family. She has no hands and no feet. Amputations as a result of sepsis. She will need a service dog forever. 

Anna fell ill with Septic Toxic Shock in Dec 2018, and with only a 3% chance of survival, she survived and is a living medical miracle. She lost both hands, one above the elbow, and she lost both legs below the knee. But she has her mind, spirit and personality!!
She was able to heal a large wound over her knee, which meant she used a wheelchair, was bed-bound for over two years and lost a great deal of strength. 
She continues to heal and learn a new way of life, with hours of strengthening her body, learning to walk with lower extremity prosthetics. She has recently received upper limb body-powered prosthetics and has months to learn to do many things for herself. Feeding herself, do the simplest  things in life like dress herself, do makeup, household tasks, and maybe be able to bathe herself one day.

She will drive one day. Watch out!!

She isn't strong enough to walk for an extended period, but this is improving. We are in the process of learning about a service dog, finding the right dog, and company  and the extensive service training.
Your assistance will go towards this new beginning for all of us. This dog will go with her everywhere, even when she learns to drive, and will assist with retrieving items, helping her from a fall, and protecting her.

Please share. Thanks
