Spencer West lost both his legs when he was five years old, but recently did what few people have done when he climbed to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the tallest peak in Africa. “I set out to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro not only to redefine what’s possible for me, but to inspire others to overcome obstacles and challenges of their own, and to give back to communities, that need our help.” To learn more about his story, please see the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHWXGPgyj1c
Through programs such the annual National Mobility Awareness Month, the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) celebrates caregivers and those with disabilities who are living active and mobile lifestyles. What Spencer accomplished is a truly amazing feat and sets a wonderful example for us all.
NMEDA stands as an advocate for mobility and accessibility for drivers with disabilities. If you need help with converting or buying a wheelchair accessible car, truck or van, please consider one of our mobility equipment dealers.
