Cherie at Shepherd Center for Spinal Cord Rehab in Atlanta last winter
It's been a little while since I updated you on Cherie, my childhood friend who suffered a paralysis after flipping over in her vehicle in September, 2010.
Cherie has a brand new website for donations and they are now TAX DEDUCTIBLE! Yahoo!
Thanks to some big time donations, I am also happy to report that she finally has enough finds to purchase a handicapped accessible van. This is HUGE people, this means she can get out of the house. Previously she was at the mercy of public transport, which would only accommodate doctor appointments.
Can you imagine not being able to go out to eat, or to see a movie, or shopping for almost two years? There were a couple of occasions where she did get out. They rented a van and came up here to Orlando for the screening of "Defining Beauty" and we actually had dinner.
But having her own van is going to allow her something else.... She's agreed to head up the paralysis support group in her community and now can attend regular meetings. Wow, go Cherie, go!!
I'm headed to visit Cherie the end of this month, we plan to get into some trouble now that we have wheels!
If you can donate, even a tax deductible $5, please visit Cherie's webpage on Help Hope Live
