In Willoughby, hope of mother walking again spurs daughter’s call for help

Help Hope Live in the News

Mary Zagar

Mary Zagar is seated in her wheelchair with a purple shirt on. She has gray hair. Her daughter Patty is behind her with brown hair, sunglasses, and a pink shirt. They are outside on a patio with a fence.

“All of a sudden things started happening. It just makes me sad that what it would take I can’t afford.”

76-year-old Mary Zagar has been living with paralysis from the waist down for several years. There is hope for renewed mobility in her future – in fact, she can stand for up to 40 seconds. However, the doctor-recommended physical therapy and home equipment she needs is not covered by insurance, leaving Mary with significant out-of-pocket expenses that may exceed $69,000 per year.

Mary’s daughter, Patty, has turned to Help Hope Live for trusted medical fundraising that won’t disrupt Mary’s eligibility for state-based benefits.

“Equipment and care will potentially enhance the healing process and hopefully enable her mother to regain some mobility and a sense of independence.”
