"Wheels of Success has made a great impact on my life and I would like to thank them as well as the donors of the car that has changed my children's and my life in so many ways. We were provided with a gate way to success and health. This vehicle has provided me with a way of not worrying about how I would have to continually have to take time off from work to take two to three buses to get to a doctor's appointment.
About 3 years ago I was diagnosed with Gastroparesia an effect of bring a type one diabetic. These illnesses have caused me to be in and out of the hospital numerous of times, visits to specialist. Doctors, and counselors put a strain on me physically and financially and risk of losing my job due to all the time I would have to take off trying to make every appointment I could.
Being a single mother of 2 teenaged girls with no other income was becoming very over whelming having to make sure we could make it to places when we needed, just a simple thing as going to the grocery store was straining. There were times that I thought I was going to lose my job because it was a all day process to take 2 sometimes 3 buses to get to a doctor's appointment.
When I got the call from Wheels of Success it was life changing my children and I now have the means and way of getting to appointments without having to worry about taking so much time off from work, my health has improved due to being able to make appointments and my children have been able to join activities and get jobs of their own. Without the help from Wheels of success and the donors I don't think we would be in the place we are today so I would like to thank you and all your help and kindness and for this program that not only help me succeed but helping my family become more independent and saving my health. I am truly thankful for being a part of this program and appreciate the car so much."
