Wheels 4 Lauran
Greetings from New Orleans: Lauran Mayeaux is a 13 year old who was born with a very rare disease called Amyoplasia Congenita. This means that she has no skeletal muscle which has left her 100% disabled. She drives her electric wheelchair with her chin and was the youngest child to be trained at Tulane Hospital New Orleans to drive a chair in this way. To date she is an 8th grade honor student at Haynes Academy for Advanced Studies and just this year she was nominated for Student of the year. In December 2014, our family's handicap accessible car broke and we have been fundraising ever since. Our local Fox news affiliate picked up our story and this culminated with Tom Benson, owner of the NEw Orleans Saints and Pelicans, donating to my family a 2015 handicap accessible Dodge Grand Caravan. Please see the video below and please consider voting to have our story presented on the Ellen show.http://www.fox8live.com/story/28426302/bensons-donate-handicap-accessible-van-to-girl-with-rare-disorder
