“Freedom. In one word, that is what this scooter means to me, freedom,” Sandra told AID.org when she went to pick up the scooter.

Sandra Kniffin is 83 years old and spends 95% of her life in a wheelchair, following a stroke, which left her completely paralyzed on the left side of her body. While Sandra is a positive, upbeat woman, her outlook on life was bleak as she spent hours stuck inside watching life from a window.

When Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities Foundation  (AID.org) received Sandra’s grant application, she had mentioned an electric scooter would be life-changing and allow her to once again be interactive with her friends and neighbours and allow her the freedoms to enjoy hobbies and human interaction.

Find out what Sandra had planned for her first trip in her scooter in the video below:
