Heidi was paralyzed during a car accident in high school and became a paraplegic. She had tremendous fear about what her future held and what she would be able to do. The fear of the unknown was almost overwhelming. With strong family support and a drive to succeed she has accomplished more before graduating high school than she could have initially dreamed. Heidi can drive, snow ski, swim, play ice hockey, ride a bike and much more by just using her upper body. She raised $4000 to purchase wheelchairs for others in need and then traveled to Mexico with Chair The Hope to personally deliver them. She attends Boise State University and is one of our first Hope Dealers.
A $150 wheelchair can change not only a life, but can change a family, a school, and a community!
