Hi, my name is Callie! I am almost 3 years old. When I was 6 months old I had a traumatic brain injury and 2 skull fractures at the hands of my father. I spent 3 weeks in ICU in a coma and the drs didn’t even think I would survive, but here I am! As a result of the brain injury I can’t sit up on my own, walk, or talk, and have to eat through a feeding tube, but I am a strong little girl. I have a younger brother that is 9 months old and a stepbrother that is 4 so it gets very hard for my mommy to have to put together and take apart my wheelchair anytime we go anywhere as well as transfer me into a car seat! Not to mention loading up my siblings into their seats. We are always on the go, with several therapy appointments, and dr. appointments a week and I’m starting school soon where my mom will have to bring me to and from school 4 days a week. We would LOVE to have a wheelchair accessible van. Please, Please vote for me!!! We need this!!!
