Encouraging Words from Applicants and their Families:

(1)     Thank you so much for your generous contribution to Asher and Nolan’s new platform lift!  It makes a world of difference to not only the boys, but also to us, their parents, who no longer need to carry them down a flight of stairs.  Safety and independence for all of us have been achieved by your generous contribution.

 

(2)    First of all, we want to again express our sincere thanks for the funding towards Tyler’s specialty power wheelchair and the adaptive technology that he uses on it.  It is vital to his use of computer and therefore enables him to go to college.  It may seem like this is a small piece in his life, but really it’s the smooth working of the small pieces that makes the whole work the way it should.

 

Tyler loves learning and for him to be able to attend post-secondary schooling is his life-it helps him to be a better person and let’s other also benefit from having an opportunity to have a relationship with him.  He has a lot to offer.  Thank you for making this possible.

 

(3)     Before I got my specialized drink holder, I was reliant on other people to hold my drink for me.  Now I have more freedom to drink at my own pace and don’t have to rely on others.  Before I had the Obus foam back rest with lateral support, my attendant had to push me upright while driving because I kept leaning to the left side.  It has made it easier for him to drive and me to sit.  It has been great.

 

(4)    We received a grant to help cover the costs of my son’s power wheelchair that will also support his communication device as well as any lap top or desktop computer!  We are extremely appreciative of the JGL Foundation for enabling our boy Sidney to increase his independence.  It is the utmost importance to level the playing field for children like our son and with the JGL’s contribution we are able to do just that!

 

(5)    We are grateful to have found your program and to have received funding because we have maxed out on our personal insurance and resources and Keira really needed to start the physiotherapy now since she received botox injections in July.  Thank you so much!
