Freedom Van for Pauline

What kind of van costs $150,000?

One that drives itself…

Ok, it doesn’t actually drive itself, but it does allow someone, like myself, to drive without any arms or legs.

I know for many, the idea of driving without the use of limbs is something of the future. You should see the expression of fellow drivers as they pass me on the road. I usually look at them, shrug my shoulders and yell, "Look mom, no hands!"

But in all seriousness, technology has opened up the doors of freedom for someone like me to take her son to track practice, pick up dinner at the grocery store, meet a friend for coffee, and go to work. But that technology has a price.

My current situation requires me to step out in faith, humble myself, and ask for your help.

As independent as I'd like to believe I am, I know that there have been many people who have believed in me, stood up and helped me make the impossible possible.

By contributing, you'll be one of these people who help create possibility. By helping me get back on the road you will be making a difference.   

See, when people encounter someone who has overcome great obstacles they are inspired. The simple act of me driving and living my active life joyfully expands their minds of what is possible. Countless times I have been approached by complete strangers who share how they are encouraged by watching me roll around with a smile on my face.

Thank you for joining the journey of possibility. And please invite all of your friends and family by sharing on your FB, Twitter  (#FreedomVan), Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, etc.
