Marie from Detroit, Mi

My son is partially paralyzed; with a laptop he can continue school from home.

I am working hard to get back into the workforce. In the mean time, I need help to buy my son a laptop and new clothes so he can continue school!


I am a mother of two. My 15 year old son is paralyzed on the right side of his body from being shot in his neck.

My goals are to return to work to take care of my family. I hope from there I can help my son regain function in his body.

I need a computer and clothes for my son. Since his injury my son hasn't been able to attend school. He will be able to complete some of his work online for school.

Meeting this need will help me because my son will be able to complete some of his school work online. He will have clothes that he can fit.
