Tiffany is a single mother in need of a Handicap Accessible Van.

She has a condition called Cerebral Palsy. Cerebral Palsy is usually caused at birth because of lack of oxygen to the brain. It causes the signals in your brain to not communicate correctly with the rest of your body. It affects all four of Tiffany’s extremities, especially her right side causing her muscles to have spasms, and be in a constant state of spatisity.

Hi Everyone,

I started physical therapy a couple of weeks ago and as everyone heard we had a winter storm. Oh my goodness the snow was so beautiful. Thankfully my apartment was ok no flooding in our unit praise Jesus but, we did have some tiles that came off into the shower. I didn’t know until my care Attendent told me today. I’ll call maintenance tomorrow and they will fix it. I have been doing my exercises in between therapy and today. My care attendant and I were getting me back in bed and she usually has to help me move my leg over but……I MOVED IT ALL BY MYSELF…. yaaaaaaay we were so Excited Praise Jesus it was just a little move but it was a HUGE Accomplishment. I lost all of my mobility after my surgery. I’m so happy.

Therapy has been really hard. I’m usually in pain for two days afterwards. I have only had two sessions because of the winter storm. I go Tuesdays and Fridays. Right now we are still working on shifting my weight over to my right side by sitting and doing core exercises concentrating on my right side. My therapist says we don’t have to do big exercises, we can do small exercises to achieve what we want. I have not taken any steps yet. I will have my Occupational Therapy Evaluation on February 27, 2021

I want to say thank you so much to everyone who has continued to be in this with me and supported us.

I love every one so much and I am so thankful for you.

Sending all my love!!

Hi everyone,

Last week on Wednesday I took my powerchair outside with my physical therapist. We went all around my apartment complex. Even though the bumps from the concrete hurt my hip, it was a lot of fun and it felt so good to get out of my apartment for a while. We tried to also take a step that day and it just didn’t happen. I am having trouble loading all of my weight on to my right side in order to take a step. I was discharged from therapy on Thursday and from Home Health Care Services. I will miss them My physical therapist and occupational therapist did all that they could do. It is time to move into outpatient rehab.

I was evaluated today for Physical Therapy at Tirr. My physical therapist is going to be the same one that I started with in the beginning of this journey. She will work me hard. I am up for the challenge though. She measured my hip laying down and sitting up and checking my reflexes and strength in both my legs. She said both my legs have a lot of tone in them from my CP but we could possibly use that as an advantage in my recovery. I’m just going to go with it and trust her. My physical therapy will be 8 weeks 2 days per week. I will have my Occupational Therapy Evaluation on February 27, 2021.

Thank you so much to everyone for your continued love prayers and support.

Sending all my love!!
