Sophie's Story

Sophie is permanently disabled due to complications at birth and will never walk or talk.  Her family spent months fighting with the insurance company, which refused to pay for a wheelchair that Sophie needed for home and school.


The only wheelchair the insurer would provide was getting too small and was not adjustable for school desks.  As a result, Sophie was coming home with sores and bruises on her legs from hitting her desk repeatedly.

The Giving Circle purchased (and assembled) Sophie's new wheelchair so she can live a happier, healthier life.
