ELIS­A­BETH’S LIFE TURNED AROUND BY SCHEME

Belfast Telegraph - NI Carfinder - - News -

Elis­a­beth, aged 8, has spina bi­fida and hy­dro­cephalus, con­di­tions that af­fect her ner­vous sys­tem and mo­bil­ity.

With­out Mota­bil­ity, her life and that of her car­ers in­clud­ing mum Sam, would be much more dif­fi­cult.

Thank­fully, Mota­bil­ity came to the res­cue with a range of choices that helped out.

Elis­a­beth’s mum Sam said: “As Elis­a­beth got older, we strug­gled to lift her into the car, and there wasn’t enough space for the wheel­chair and the whole fam­ily to travel to­gether.

“What we needed was a car with ramped ac­cess so that Elis­a­beth could travel in her wheel­chair, but that was also big enough for the whole fam­ily.”

Sam ap­proached Mota­bil­ity who gave them a grant to­wards a suit­able wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble ve­hi­cle.

“Thanks to the new car we are mo­bile,” said Sam. “Af­ter we got the car, we went on our first fam­ily camp­ing trip.”
