Javier 11 years old...
I saw a young man transformed today. I'd met him two weeks earlier. He was shy, hopeless and removed. He did not leave his home because he did not have a wheelchair that his mother could transport.
Everything changed today when he saw the donated wheelchair I'd brought especially for him from our warehouse.
It fit Javier perfect, this wheelchair was waiting for him. It was the only one in the warehouse chair sized perfectly for him that didn't need repairs, it was ready to go!
His eyes were wide and his smile BRIGHT. Today was a new day for Javier... full of hope, energy, enthusiasm he was now going to be able to go fishing and to Disneyland! This is why Wheels of Mercy exists.
This... is why I do what I do!
