"Will2Walk impacted my life in a major way because they helped me get back on my feet, literally. I am absolutely in love with my brand new standing frame wheelchair and use it for day-to-day activities such as therapy, exercise and fitness, cleaning, cooking, standing, and hard-to-reach places. I'm now able to look someone in the face for a normal conversation. I can really see improvement in quality of living, and I owe it all to the Will2Walk Foundation!"

"Thank you for the generous grant that allowed me to obtain a shower chair - it works beautifully! After being injured in a surfing accident in August 2017, getting this shower chair was the first time I was able to sit in the shower since I was hospitalized. The shower chair is wonderful and I cannot express to you how grateful I am!"

"After living for some time confined to a power chair, I missed the freedom of going anywhere with friends. After multiple attempts to get a manual chair, a friend told me about Will2Walk where I applied and was awarded a scholarship. I love the convenience of being able to get in any car - it gives me so much more freedom. Thanks so much, Will2Walk - you’ve changed my life for the better."

"Therapy allows me to stretch and help move my body and hopefully retrain it to someday be able to move on its own again. I am currently working on strengthening my arms and hands, in hopes of one day being able to drive my own chair with my left hand. Currently, I have to drive it with my tongue. Ongoing and repetitive therapy is my only hope to regain function in one or both of my hands. My goal right now is function in my left hand, in hopes of someday having more."
