Maranda, a 29-year-old from Holland, was excited for her ten-year high school reunion. Her power chair, however, was so rundown and unusable that travel would be impossible unless she got a new, expensive chair.

She applied for insurance and waited anxiously, but a week out from the reunion, she still wasn’t authorized for a new one.

After she contacted Alternatives in Motion, our program tech, Ron, quickly drove out to her with a better chair, allowing her not only to attend her reunion but to gain back her independence.
