31-year-old Cayla Lemire is fundraising with Help Hope Live for an accessible van – her current vehicle is starting to become unsafe to repair after 18 years of use. She is living with muscular dystrophy.
Pursuing her Master of Social Work degree and hoping to work in pediatric palliative care, Cayla won’t be able to cover the cost of a van without assistance. A replacement van will allow her to continue her education and prepare for a career in her field.
