Lina needs a van, and we can help!
This girl is fierce, smart and geared up to make a difference! After surviving a horrible car accident that broke her neck in 3 different places, making her a quadriplegic, she could have given up. Her doctor said she'd never feel or move anything below her chest again. After months of physical recuperation and the unthinkable mental struggle Lina had to go through, she almost gave up.
However, thanks to a supportive family, dedicated nurses and physical therapists, Lina built up the strength to move her arms agian! Her slow but determined fight for life pushed her to get well enough to walk with her high school graduating class and is now facing a bright future!
This is where we come in. Transportation that accommodates wheelchairs is hard to come by, and Lina needs our help. We are hoping to raise $35,000.00 to cover the cost of a van and wheelchair lift.
Tuong Dang, a family friend and my generous father, has offered to cover the cost of installing the wheelchair lift as it runs in his line of work, but we need your help to purchase a van large enough to fit the lift she needs!
Although Lina is limited in what she can do, she has so much to offer! This van will help take her from home to school where she can complete her degree in Social Work, shoot off to community centers where Lina can share her remarkable story to inspire those around her, and rollin' up to therapy appointments that will help her progress in her daily life.
Lina has already gone through so much hardship, let's try to help relieve the struggle her parent's fight through to provide for their family's needs and give the life their wonderful daughter deserves.
Much love and kindest wishes,
