Diana says in my own home there are; “No strings to hold me back. If I want to visit family, friends or just go outside, I can do it.”
Diana and Jane work together. Jane provides the physical support when; “Mom is having a clumsy day.” Dianna provides the role model that has assisted her daughter in becoming more involved and a part of the community they live in.
In addition to volunteering at local non-profit organizations and delivering Meals on Wheels, Jane is planning a trip toTopekato advocate for allKansasresidents that have a disability.
Diana just wants everyone to know; “If I can do it you can do it.”
