"Thank you, Will2Walk Foundation, for the help I received for my new elevated wheelchair! It has already changed my life in so many ways by allowing me to reach cabinets, cook & see in the pots and be eye level when having conversations. Most importantly, it's giving me the independence I need to return to work as a bank teller."

"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!"
