Today is exciting for two reasons. The main reason is that I get to meet one of the great gals from Living for a Cure, Karen Goins. She is an artist who lives in Virginia Beach. She has so kindly shared her love of art with me, sending me supplies so I could learn some of her craft when I needed a boost. She’s really dynamic! The second reason I am excited is that Karen is giving me another goodie to help me with the limits imposed by multiple sclerosis (MS). She is giving me a folding power wheelchair! Karen bought a chair a few months ago and took it on a Delta Airlines flight when she went travelling. Unfortunately, the wheelchair was damaged. Delta stepped up and bought her a brand new chair. Amazing company! When the repairman came by to pick up the damaged chair, Karen told him that I was about to fundraise for the same wheelchair. He told he to just give me that one! Can you believe it? Karen said all it needs is a screw and it will be as good as new now! I am awed and stunned and amazed, and so grateful.
