Being a grandpa is one of the most important things to Juan.
Juan, a 51 year old man we met in June, is many things…but one of the most important is being an active grandpa.
Recently, Juan experienced a stroke that left him with mobility issues, frequent dizzy spells and general weakness.
He was referred to Project MEND through his University Health System (UHS) case worker who knew of our programs and was hopeful we could supply Juan with the medical equipment necessary for his successful rehabilitation and recovery.
Through an established relationship with UHS, we put Juan through our Medical Equipment Reuse Program and provided him with a professionally refurbished and sanitized wheelchair.
While Juan is still on a journey to fully recovered, he is happy knowing that the freedom in mobility he was dreaming of is now a reality.
