Rachael has chosen to fundraise with Help Hope Live in part because Help Hope Live assures fiscal accountability of funds raised and tax deductibility to the full extent allowed by law for donors.

I once again am asking for your help (ugg I hate this). I am having to move… but fortunately I have a place to go and it will be a permanent place! I am looking for help to pay for modifications in the bathroom, adding ramps, moving my greenhouse/gym etc. to make this new place accessible. I have a roof over my head and food on the table, I have more than so many which makes it hard for me to ask for help but I greatly appreciate any support that you can give to make my new home accessible. Thank you for for being the light. -Rachael

Most of Rachael’s days are spent exercising and moving as she tries to gain back as much strength as possible. She is able to continue on her journey from paralysis because of people like you who donate to her recovery. Progress is slow but continues to move forward, not only does your donation give her hope but allows her to gain back strength and independence along with helping her stay in good health mentally and physically.

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” Confucius

Her runners are training hard and hit highway 1 in part of the Big Sur Marathon on Sunday, April 29th, 2018 to run their hardest for her recovery and she is forever grateful for their amazing support and yours! This will be the 8th annual Relay for Rachael and we are more ready than ever!
