Read this post and help change an amazing woman's life!

Are you having a typical day today? Maybe you went to work and had a nice meal with your family. You would probably expect the next day to be pretty much the same, wouldn't you? This is exactly what Stephanie Palmer thought, but the next day and the following days have turned out very different.

In January 2009 Stephanie was 14 weeks pregnant with her second child. She had an 11 month old son, a husband, and the life she really wanted. She was enjoying a family meal out when she began to experience horrible pains in her arms. She was raced to the emergency room and within hours she was paralyzed from the neck down. Diagnosed with Guillian Barre Syndrome, Stephanie spent the next the next 5 months in the hospital, where she delivered her son Talon 7 weeks early. 

The last few years have been filled with hard work and therapy, but Stephanie now has limited use of her arms and hands and is able to get around in a wheelchair. In 2011 it was confirmed that Stephanie had Transverse Myelitis. This means that recovery can take much longer than expected. Instead of giving up, Stephanie has a renewed determination. Now a single mom, she says she is done putting her life on hold while she waits to recover. She is ready to live now.

Unfortunately, with limited mobility it is difficult for her to live the life she wants for herself and her children. This is where we can help!

Starting this year, the month of May is being recognized as National Mobility Awareness Month. As a result, the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association is giving away a minimum of 3 custom wheelchair accessible vehicles to someone who really needs it. Stephanie has entered this contest and is currently in 17th place. Let's help her get to first place and make a better life for this amazing woman and her family.

  5. I do not write a comment, but I looked at a few of the comments here "Read this post and help change an amazing woman's life!".
    I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind.
    Could it be only me or do a few of these remarks come across as if they are coming from brain dead visitors?
    :-P And, if you are posting on additional
    social sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
    Could you make a list of every one of all your social networking sites like your twitter
    feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
