Next month we celebrate 5 years of my husband being cancer free. The chemotherapy he had to have, though, has resulted in multiple complications. One of the biggest challenges is his chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy. He now has limited function in his hands and feet and mobility is definitely a concern.
Now a disabled Vet, we have connected with many soldiers and veterans with limited mobility. In fact, he had his surgeries and chemotherapy at the original Walter Reed, so we met many wounded warriors. Having access to equipment that allows for mobility is a must.
The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association understands how important this is, and they work to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities. NMEDA and their members provide the best and most beneficial solutions for increased mobility. They’re the best source for mobility equipment and wheelchair accessible vehicles.
Can you imagine how limiting it would be to no longer be able to drive? Can you imagine not even being able to get in a vehicle easily? For those with mobility challenges this is often their reality. It is challenging enough to adjust to living with a disability but to not have the freedom they’re used to having is even more challenging. Mobility equipment and wheelchair accessible vehicles help them to get back their independence.
Having this independence is a luxury we can definitely take for granted. Having resources available to help makes a big difference. It’s important to get connected with the right resources!

We don’t know what lies ahead.

It makes me feel good to know that all those soldiers we met that touched our lives also have access to support and their independence.
