The Wheels With Wings Quality of Life Grant Program awards grants to individuals in need, helping them to gain back their confidence and truly Rise Above their spinal cord injuries. Read some of their stories below to see how we have already helped so many.
“Thank you so much! I am very excited about my new shower chair! We have been bed bathing for the past 4 months since coming home to NY from acute rehab. Having this chair will enable me to have a safe and clean routine greatly benefitting my health and my life. This is a picture of me doing a “dry run” in our existing shower! We weren’t sure how it was all going to fit, but it worked out great! Thank you again for the kindness and generosity you have bestowed upon me.”
“I want to thank Wheels With Wings for helping me get my accessible van. Now I’ve gained independence that I didn't even know I was missing.”
“Thank you Wheels with Wings Foundation for helping me get a new wheelchair that is allowing me to be more independent and live a healthy and active lifestyle.”
"Thanks to the grant received from Wheels With Wings, I get to keep my legs moving! I have more energy, my spasms are less frequent, and my transfers are easier.
It's an amazing feeling!”
“I truly miss so many simple things that the average person takes for granted everyday. I miss getting out of bed easily, grabbing a shower on my own, or jumping in my car for a nice drive. Wheels with Wings has helped me tremendously! I appreciate everything that the Wheels with Wings Foundation has done for me.
“This donation was a huge blessing to my family and myself which has allowed me to participate in months of specialized exercise programs for spinal cord rehabilitation. I have gotten much stronger and healthier because of the Wheels with Wings Foundation, enabling me to financially participate in an advanced recovery program. My family and I are forever grateful for your generosity and huge hearts that have helped me improve the quality of my life. May God bless all your future endeavors.”
“Because of Natalie’s huge heart and vision to start a foundation to help others recovering from a spinal cord injury, I am honored to be a recipient. I am excited to get back into therapy and make anyone who has volunteered, donated or in any way helped to make the Wheels with Wings Foundation possible, proud of me and proud of what this organization can do for others with a spinal cord injury. Thank you to everyone who has made this
