MY NIECE WITH DISABILITY NEEDS MOBILITY SCOOTER
My niece, Cheska, is one of the most amazing young women I know. She is a loving, intelligent and compassionate person who had faced so much adversity in life from the moment she was born 19 years ago. You see Cheska was born with Spina Bifida, a life-threatening physical development disability, that was so severe in form that many medical experts had written her out.
In fact, she spent her fist year of life in the NICU. By the time she was 5 years old, she had to undergo several surgical procedures at a New Jersey hospital. Without the help of a charitable foundation covering her medical costs, Cheska's disabilities would have been more challenging for her to handle as she got older.
Even though Spina Bifida had caused her to have phyical development disabilities, she never used it as an excuse to give up on life. Quite the contrary actually, instead Cheska didn't let her physical disability slow her down and has accomplished so much in her young life including graduating from Manvel High School last year with an Associate's Degree. In addition to having stellar grades, she co-founded Opportunity Smiles, a high school club that assists special-needs children and families. They also educate the community about special-needs children and what life is like for them. Furthermore, Cheska volunteers as a Sunday School teacher at Lakewood Church, the largest church in the nation, where Joel Osteen is the pastor.
So here we are 19 years later and Cheska just started her freshman year of college at the University of Houston. Being an independent woman, she decided to stay at the campus dorm. Her classes are held at different buildings and require her to utilize a motorized scooter. With the unpredictable weather in Houston, Cheska needs a motorized scooter with a canopy so when it rains she can still attend her classes and stay dry. Unfortunately, their health insurance does not cover for a motorized scooter.
I am raising funds for a mobility scooter for Cheska and I hope you find it in your heart to make a small donation for such a wonderful person. Thank you and God bless.
