When my dad got in a terrible car accident 15 years ago, my family came to realize the extensive medical costs for someone who needs adaptive equipment. The adaptive equipment can better a person's day-to-day living. Alot of times, the different types of equipment is either not covered or only partially covered by insurance. Being a family member of someone who needs this equipment, and not being able to afford it, is very hard. I've witnessed first hand, the equipment people are able to get and use because of the donations given to the GABR. I've seen the joyful tears of family members who get to see their loved one get something that will better their life. I'm participating in this great event so I can do my part to contribute to those needing assistance. From donating to spreading the word about GABR, know that your help WILL have a positive impact on people residing in your very own local community. Thank you taking the time to read this!
