Supporters Raise $50K for Wheelchair Accessible Van for Woman in South Bend

A recent social media campaign that began some time ago has finally paid off, as hundreds rally behind Heather Smith, a South Bend woman with multiple sclerosis.

With the assistance of social media campaigns like #HeatherNeedsAVan, supporters have successfully raised more than $50,000 for a wheelchair accessible van. Something Heather was unable to afford on her own as a single mother with MS.

Before, Heather had to rely on her friends and family to help with loading and unloading her scooter, a task not easy by any means, and on May 20, 2014 it became a thing of the past, as she regained her independence.

Smith’s family said, this had been an overwhelming and emotional experience; the outpouring of support received from friends and strangers alike has been nothing short of a miracle.

As the amount climbed, Smith just couldn’t believe her dream was about to become a reality. In fact, it came a little sooner than she expected. Smith was actually about $5,000 short of the goal, but received a surprise from the owner of Superior Van & Mobility, Sam Cook, who came through at the end to cover the rest. Putting Heather into her mobility van much sooner than later.

Congratulations Heather on your new found independence!
