Teri is my twin sister, aka "my wombmate" and she is, by far, the most beautiful inside-and-out person I've ever known - always doing and caring about everything for everyone else, always. She is also one of the most generous people I know. Teri surely can do just about anything we all can do <and even more> even though she was born with CP and cannot walk without assistance. She never complains though, never. We just had our 50th Birthday and although she is always willing to use her walker and manual wheelchair it's increasingly more difficult for her to push herself when others are not around. Teri has always been completely self sufficient. Therefore, it is time that she get an electric wheelchair to continue moving and shaking. She really needs this now that she lives in San Diego with the limited or lack of public transportation and fine weather! She also happens to be the most fashionably dressed, in a family full of women, and even though it may take her an hour to put on her shoes, she doesn't ever ask for help. She truly deserves to be able to get around like everyone else, and her insurance will NOT cover this because "she doesn't NEED it," well yes, in fact, she could crawl around on the cement and do her Christmas shopping, Mr. Brilliant (useless) Insurance guy. Teri is currently in the process of writing a book about her experiences as a handicapped person, and how she has been treated in the most odd and peculiar ways by unknowing and uneducated people, but by the most intellectual of souls as well, and how, amazingly enough, she has managed to always keep a smile on her beautiful, flawless porcelin face! (its even more amazing I haven't been to jail for socking someone in the nose, for a stupid comment over the past 50 yrs) And so, here's an example of Teri's spirit : She wasn't allowed to go bungee jump because she was not heavy enough, so what did she do? She went home, fattened herself up and went back, heavy enough, and said, "Ok!! Ready!" and and proceeded to jump off an old logging bridge surrounded by a beautiful emerald green forest, nearly 200 ft above a majestic sparkling river in Washington. Next question, from Teri to me was, "Will you go skydiving with me? All you'll have to do is push me out!" Please, let's just get Teri moving around town first, so she can continue shopping and exploring and having her lil adventures, instead of putting me in heart attack mode.
