Donna Cruz

I Just Wanted More  

Donna lives in Parsons. She lives with her husband and two children. In 2002 a trip to Branson didn't turn out like planned. An accident put her mother in the hospital and her in the emergency room. Donna found out she had three crushed vertebra. She uses a wheel chair to be mobile.

Sable, her service dog weighs in at just two and a half pounds. But for Donna she is a very big part of her life. Sable picks up on the physiological changes that Donna experiences and wards off a medical crisis. This assists Donna in her recovery.  

"I had no idea where I was going to get the help past home health care." says Donna. Donna was a prisoner in her own home until she began talking to people at SKIL Resource Center.


Donna worked with SKIL to acquire an electric wheel chair and ramp. What she found out is that there is more at SKIL. She is independent. To view a brief video of Donna as she shares how to find the resources and people to assist you in finding a more independent life click the video below.
