Day 2550: The Expense of Disability

Disability is expensive – that’s what I’m realizing.


It’s 12 : 29  PM on day 2550 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Exodus 34:21, have breakfast  and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised to $3 352 only $9 148 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .


Yesterday my sister and I were researching possible portable electric wheelchairs for me my eyes almost popped out of my head when I saw the prices of the chairs (R33 000-R49 000 ($3 000-$3 800)) my whole family acted as if money was no object and told me to pick a few options for my physiotherapist to recommend the best one for me I’m so fortunate that my parents can afford to get me everything I need my heart goes out to parents who love their kids just as much as my parents love me but can’t afford to get their kids everything they need.
