Kindness on Wheels
Marty is a 50-year-old woman who is blind, mostly deaf, and lives with her elderly mother. She has lost a lot of her mobility and is therefore in a wheelchair. Her service dog is now retired; losing this working partner has increased her social anxiety. Monthly, as the weather permits, she finds a ride from Vermont to Connecticut to visit her retired service dog before that can no longer happen. I have been Marty's STM, PCA, & RN for Joni & Friends camp for adults with disabilities for the past 3 years. Her smile and kind heart brightens everyone's day! She has had to overcome so many hurdles. She has helped so many online overcome their own life traumas. Even in the midst of her own struggles, she helps others through theirs.
