Stand Tall

From Morgan Norris

THANK YOU for enabling me to purchase a STANDING WHEELCHAIR! Now, I must pay for modifications to the chair lift in my van to bring this heavier equipment to events and share it with others.

SUCCESS!!!!! I have won the perfect standing wheelchair!!! I am able to reach cupboards and shelves and stand for exercise. Now, I need to modify my chair lift in my van. I am reducing my goal to reflect the INCREDIBLE deal I got on the major medical equipment I needed.

More Info

Please consider donating to this great cause. This remarkable woman is one of the strongest, kindest trailblazing advocate and artist has never let anything hold her back, not a life threatening accident, not a spinal cord injury that took away use of her legs, and certainly not an insurance company that won't pay for a standing wheelchair despite the numerous health benefits it offers. She works to make NC inclusive and wants to help others find their voices, talents and inner strength. She is always looking for ways to help, compliment and encourage everyone she meets. Sadly, she suffers with continued nerve pain, muscle atrophy and the ever looming threat of pressure ulcers from being bent into a seated position. One of the best preventative therapies is simply standing up. innovations in wheelchair design makes this possible!! it makes no sense that insurance refuses to pay for this wheelchair so it falls upon us her community to step in, each donate what we can and together, buy her this wheelchair!

UPDATE: the perfect chair was won off ebay at a great deal!! All that remains is to modify the chair lift in her van to she may safely bring it to volunteer at SAFE domestic abuse services, to the many advocate speaking events and opportunities to share this wonderful tech!

The pix above of skydiving, pushing through the Arches, finishing the 5k color run, rocking surf events, attending painting class, piloting an exoskeleton program, at the gym, on horseback at Yosemite national park, cycling through Pisgah, demonstrating wheelchair ballet, and even dreams of Olympic wheelchair fencing prove that she is unstoppable! Help her continue to inspire and help others in good health by donating what you can. Any donation will be publicly praised and larger donations earn a special thank you gift from the artist herself.
