Mobility Scooter for Brenda

2 years ago my mom, Brenda was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. There is no cure and there is no medication that will help her.  My mom is quickly losing the ability to walk and suffers from extreme fatigue.  Even the best of the best at Mayo have said "it is what it is."  My mom being the stubborn hardworking woman that she is STILL WORKS. Granted, she was denied disability so she must.... If the weather is not good, my dear ol' dad drives her to work. He then goes to work and picks her up on his way home. Not because she can't get in the door, but because the risk of her falling trying to get her walker out the car is significant. They make it all work! So as her daughter, who she gave a wonderful life to, my mission is to return the favor for her. That she would have a great quality of life, despite her disease. Because she has Jesus as her Savior she is already ahead in life regardless of what challenges she is given.  For that we are all so very thankful. I hope you'll consider giving to make her life a little bit easier. 

This gofundme is to raise money for my mom to purchase a mobility scooter. Right now if she wants to go enjoy the outdoors she can't get very far or needs to be pushed in her wheelchair. Sometimes a girl just needs some fresh air and some alone time. Can I get a witness? :)  We want her to be able to go for a walk with my dad like they used to. I want her to come to the zoo with me and my little girls! I REALLY want to go to the mall with her again, and not sense her sadness that I have to push her around the whole mall while she tells me where she'd like to go. It's doable, just hard on our hearts. I want her to go places she hasn't gone because she just can't go that far. 

Our goal is to raise the money by the end of March to get her outside and enjoy "spring" in Wisconsin. :) I hope you'll consider giving to help my sweet mom get a mobility scooter. It would mean the world to our entire family.  

Other ways to help...
1. Pray. Pray boldly for healing, for pain relief and for energy. 
2. Encourage Brenda. Send a card, a message, a text and share a story of how she has blessed your life. 
3. Share this with your friends on social media. 
4. How this all started was I decided to give my profits from my Beautycounter business from the month of March to buy her one. Many would like to just give directly and that is TOTALLY fine!  You can also shop there. www.beautycounter.com/bethanybernhard

Thank you so much!
