Immediately when I saw Tere lying in the hospital bed, I thought about my own accident years ago.
But unlike Tere, my family and friends were close by. I had excellent health insurance and had a network to support me.
Tere has none of those things, and yet I could see the unbroken spirit of a fearless young woman who was willing to climb high in a tree as part of a game.
I can't change her paralysis from falling out of that tree, but I can change what happens to her now. I can make a positive difference by allowing her to feel the joy brought on by an act of true compassion and service.
needs rehabilitation, equipment, and medical supplies. But, I am
starting with the one thing she needs the most, the funds to purchase a
suitable wheelchair. Her family is from Mexico and is unable to afford
one for her.
Tere needs your help to move forward. Please donate what you can. Every little bit helps. Let's make a real difference by providing her support in her hour of need.
Please help me make this time for Tere just a little more bearable! xx
***all funds will be transferred to the Tere Parra escrow account at the Wells Fargo National Bank upon receipt***
