Blessing for Pam

It's time!   The tub is to come Wednesday!   It's so very exciting.   But the foundation that is helping with the installation isn't covering it all.   Pam is short about $2000.   Thanks for all you've already done.... and if you can, please consider helping one last time.   THANKS!   - Nancy   3/31/14



Pam McElhaney is such an inspiration to me. I'm certain she is to you as well. Her life is a wonderful example of a woman whose trust is completely in God.

A few months ago Pam posted this video on fb. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voBozpD9Ksw
I was so touched by her openness to share this need in her life. As you know, Pam's been in a wheelchair for decades. As a quadriplegic, she uses her arms for everything "“ besides the normal things, she uses her arms to move her entire body from her wheelchair to bed, bath, etc. Unfortunately, she broke an arm while getting in/out of the bathtub last summer. It's taken 2 surgeries and months to heal, and she's still in the strengthening stage (She currently has home-health-care helping with baths). In April she posted that she was finally able to get in bed without help for the first time in 4 months! When I visited her for Katy's wedding, I saw her bathroom with its lovely tub and shower supposedly made especially for her needs. Unfortunately, the contractor didn't know what he was doing and she is unable to use the bath or shower (the fire dept had to come and get her out of the tub the one time she tried it!). Therefore, she has to use the hall bath, which is small and so difficult to get down into and up out of.

The bathtub in this video would be such a blessing. I really don't want her breaking her arm again! She said it was around $6000. I've called the company and that is for the very basic model. I'd love to see her get the ADL Spa Safety System with air jets. This is $9600 plus $350 shipping. Since this is a fundraiser, the company is willing to give her 15% off! With this discount, we're talking $8510.

That's a lot of money. But if half of her facebook friends give her a gift of just $22 each, we could get her the basic model; for $34 each we could get her the upgraded model. I've set up this fundraising page on which you can send her a gift by credit card. Or, feel free to mail her a check! THANKS for considering this for Pam. I don't think this is a luxury. I really believe she NEEDS this tub to continue to live independently.

Thanks and God Bless you as you give.
