Story

Mary experienced a medical emergency which resulted in paralysis from the waist down.  Our Benedictine High School (the Cadets) were able to head out to Goochland early Saturday morning and build her a ramp – right off her bedroom!  This will allow her a safe and easy means of egress in case of emergency, a doctor’s appointment, or in case she would like to just sit outside in the sun.

She was so thankful to meet the builders – who traveled quite a ways to help her!  Thank you to RAMPS Alumni Advisory Board Member, August Berling (a graduate of Benedictine) for leading this build (and jumpstarting a car, which happened to be preventing us from finishing the ramp).

Additional thanks to the Dana and Christopher Reeve Foundation for their donation, which helps us make this ramp for Mary possible.  To see more resources available for those with spinal cord injury, visit the link below:
