Lift a Finger to Change a Life

“Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.” – Anthony Brandt


Reblog, Retweet, or simply copy and send this link to family and friends TODAY for them to Lift a Finger and vote to Change Susan’s Life and win her a Wheelchair Accessible Van


It’s easy in the course of day-to-day life to take things for granted, like getting out of bed in the morning, walking downstairs and making the coffee. As runners, you may even take running five miles, or 26.2, for granted. Stop for a moment and think of the millions of people around the world who aren’t as lucky, people who would give anything to simply be able to move about freely.

There are two people in my life who are afflicted with multiple sclerosis, one of which is my sister. So when a friend of mine asked that I vote to win his sister-in-law, Susan, a wheelchair accessible van, I obliged, and now appeal to you to vote, as well. Each vote–each click of a finger–increases Susan’s chances to win the wheel chair van.

Susan’s was diagnosed with MS thirty years ago and has been wheelchair bound for ten years. Her primary care taker is her husband, who transfers Susan from wheelchair to car for family dinners, holiday gatherings, doctor’s visits and more. Transferring another adult is no easy task, I know from the experiences of transferring my mom the final seven years of her life.

Read Susan’s story here:

Susan’s children nominated her for the chance to win the wheelchair van which would change her life, and that of her husband’s. You only need to click here, enter your email address to register, and then vote, or you can simply sign in with Facebook and your vote is cast. There is one week remaining to vote and you can vote once each day.

So lift a finger and help Susan win the wheelchair van.
