The Legacy Foundation had the honor of helping a single mother who is taking care of her child who suffers from Rett Syndrome – a debilitating, neurological disorder almost exclusively diagnosed in females. This disease leaves its victims profoundly disabled, requiring maximum assistance with every aspect of daily living. Sadly, there is no cure. Transporting her daughter from her care facility to her home in a used van, not configured for a disabled person, was a challenge the mother dealt with everyday. She was determined to provide a better and safer way to transport her daughter. On her own, she set out to secure funding and through our help was able to purchase and install a power lift chair to her existing van. Now she can safely transport her daughter.
