As a single mother of 3 teens with Muscular Dystrophy atrophy, independence is important. MDFF made it possible for us to have an automatic door opener for the main entrance to our home, and each of the kids has an opener on their wheelchair.
My plate is full caring for my children. I enjoy seeing my children have greater independence, and it is one less responsibility for me. I remember the first day the school bus arrived after the door was installed. My daughter had such joy and excitement as she realized for the first time, she could get to the bus entirely on her own.
