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 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.
