Please Help Me Become Independent!

Hello. My name is Jane Koza and, among many other things, I am a paraplegic. Please allow me a moment of your time to share my story with you. At the age of 47, I was an active, healthy adult woman. In my youth, I was an all-star athlete excelling in both basketball and softball, so the years of playing did take a toll on my body. It was immanent that I would need arthroscopic knee surgery to repair the torn cartilage. It had progressed to the point where I could barely walk.

HI everyone, Twilight Wish Foundation has granted my wish for a trip to Yankee Stadium. On September 15th, celebrating my 60th birthday, me and a friend will travel by van to Yankee stadium and attend the Yankees game against the Toronto Blue Jays. Included in the package are two Yankee Legend Suite seats, meeting with former Yankee players and an all you can eat buffet. This is a great gift and Ican’t wait to get to Yankee Stadium.

And there’s more… In November an old friend is taking me to see Elton John at Madison Square Garden. This is Sir John’s final tour and I’m really glad that I will have the opportunity to see him live in New York.

Also, as I mentioned, I’ve started painting again and I will soon put some of my pictures up for auction. Details will follow soon.

Thank you

Hi Jane, I hope my donation will help you in your recovery. I am recovering from hip replacement surgery & I had a MRSA infection before surgery. It is my privilege to help a Seton Sister. Best regards & continued progress.

Jane - I hope the cushion is giving you relieve and hope you can get the chair very soon. Best of luck to you - your story and meeting you at Delaire truly touched me.
