The Scooter Store Donates Power Wheelchair to Disabled Katrina Survivor

No Comments 21 December 2010

New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) May 19, 2007

For Dorothy Rubit, it has been a struggle to live a happy life. She has suffered many losses during her lifetime. Mrs. Rubit has endured the loss of loved ones, and her own health has declined significantly, impeding her mobility. And although she survived Hurricane Katrina, the 86-year-old woman still lost most of her possessions in the storm. To help Ms. Rubit improve her quality of life, The Scooter Store granted her an electric wheelchair through its”Gift of Mobility” program.

This week, The Scooter Store delivered a free electric wheelchair under its “Gift of Mobility Program” to Ms. Rubit. The program provides power wheelchairs and scooters to seniors and people with disabilities who do not have the resources or insurance coverage to obtain mobility equipment. The electric wheelchair was delivered by James King from The Scooter Store in Baton Rouge, LA. The National Chronic Pain Society partnered with The Scooter Store to make the donation possible.

Ms. Rubit suffers terribly from arthritis and her spine is so bent it is very difficult for her to stand or even walk short distances. After losing her husband and daughter to bone cancer, Ms. Rubit endured months of relocation due to Hurricane Katrina and a subsequent fire. Unfortunately, she no longer even receives hurricane relief aid and her current fixed income barely covers basic living expenses.

Tough times meant the purchase of an electric wheelchair was out of the question. And, Ms. Rubit got more bad news when she learned her insurance would not cover the cost of an electric wheelchair.

Ever the optimist, Ms. Rubit stayed positive, prayed, and, after seeing a television advertisement, she called The Scooter Store looking for help. Her prayers were answered when she learned The Scooter Store was willing to give her a power wheelchair.

“We hope the power wheelchair delivered to Ms. Rubit can help her enjoy more freedom and independence,” said Doug Harrison, CEO and Founder of The Scooter Store. Mr. Harrison said that “the goal of the Gift of Mobility program is to improve the quality of life for people like Ms. Rubit. We are pleased to be able to help her and others in need.”

Mr. Harrison and his wife, Susanna, started the Gift of Mobility program in December 2002 to help provide freedom, independence and personal integrity to people with limited mobility. Since its inception, the outreach program has worked with organizations around the world to donate each year as many as 70 electric wheelchairs and scooters and manual wheelchairs valued at more than 0,000.
