We have watched the progression of her disease from using a cane to walker and now a motorized wheelchair. Because of this, travel is difficult. When they do travel anywhere by car Christy is unable to bring her wheelchair and must rely on a non-motorized chair leaving her totally dependent on others.
Over the past few years she has started to feel more and more isolated because she is unable to attend activities involving her children. Since 2006, more than 60 families have been providing dinners for Christy and her family 3 days a week. Christy has part time help in her house but is unable to do simple tasks that we take for granted such as get herself a cup of coffee.
Through the progression of this unforgiving disease, Christy remains strong, positive and continues to give back by adopting an underprivileged child during Christmas.
Our wish for Christy is a vehicle that would accommodate her motorized wheelchair allowing more freedom for her and her family.
