Maria's Mobility Scooter

Dear  Kaplan Family!

One of our cherished Kaplan Family members needs our help.  Maria Caldarella is known by many here at Kaplan and has been through a lot! But she is a the strongest woman I have ever known.  Maria is in need of a motarized scooter that costs approximately $2,000.  This would be a beautiful gift to give her at this holiday season . Any amount would be helpful to try to reach this goal to present this to our wonderful Maria!

Below are some of her own words of perserverance to continue to move ahead and heal.  We all wish her continued strength and God's Blessings always!

REEREE UPDATE: POSITIVITY!!!!! Today starts a new chapter in the odessey....this is a brighter adventure. I am finally heading out of the hospital after almost a month and on to rehab in a special rehab hospital. Its inpatieht and i am not sure how long I will be there. It is NOT close to home so I may be on my own for the most part but I got this. I have to make this work, i need to gain both upper and lower body strength. I then hope to get a prosthetic once I am healed. There is no more room for error, infection, bone infection, osteomylitis or any other issue. There is basically no leg left so it has to work. Thanks for your support! Love you all. Hang in there with me, I need you all! 

                         WE LOVE YOU MARIA!!!
