With a manual wheelchair, I will be able to access all areas of my home independently. I will be able to eat in the kitchen with my family. My wife is unable to carry my current wheelchair up and down the stairs; therefore, I spend most of my time on the second level of my home. This equipment will allow me to spend more time with my family, increase my independence within my home, and allow me to get out of the house for appointments and social events.
Received a Manual Wheelchair from the 2019 Tournament Funds.
I would like to thank you and your family for the Driving Fore a Cure golf tournament and the vision you had in creating an event that would make a difference. Not just a fundraiser that adds to the giant pool for research, but that is there to support people with their daily challenges. This is why Driving Fore a Cure is so special.
I am very fortunate to have benefited from the Driving Fore a Cure tournament, with the assistance in purchasing a wheelchair. This is greatly appreciated and will make a huge impact on my quality of life. The increase in my mobility will lower the stress on myself and my loved ones. With this, I will also gain back some independence. I am very thankful for all that you have done for myself and others in similar situations.
I would like to extend a heartfelt thank-you, from myself and all the others that might not have been able say it directly. All the hard work does not go unnoticed.
Thank-you for making a difference.

“I cannot thank the Community Fund enough for providing me with the funds needed for a Sit Stand Machine. It is the most valuable piece of equipment for me at this time. It provides me with the opportunity to live independently in my own home, close to friends who can drop by anytime for a visit. It is such a pleasure to wake up every morning in my apartment and spend the day doing all the activities I enjoy.
You were such a big help to me in expediting the application process and providing the funds for this much needed apparatus in such a timely manner. I am so grateful to you and the work that the MS Society does in providing the support needed by the handicapped in this community.”

Thank you, thank you, and thank you again! God Bless! The contractors are just finishing the door and upper landing for the porch lift right now. The deck has enough room that I can put a chair out and enjoy the summer sunshine. That, in itself, will help both of us. It is a relief to be able to get out of the house safely.
