Pushrim Foundation would like to thank the great therapist at Rancho Los Amigos for having an outing for their newly injured patients to have a little break and enjoy some music, bbq and the outdoors. It was great being able to share some of our life after injury experiences to help encourage them to move towards better living no matter what the obstacles might look like. Lucky person got a huge helping of some loaded nachos from Monica our great Volunteer. While others were enjoying lots of laughs at our photo booth. 😂

Exciting and well overdue.

Moments ago, the U.S. Department of Transportation, headed by Secretary Pete Buttigieg, released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that would improve the of lavatories on larger single-aisle aircraft.

PVA is pleased that the U.S. Department of Transportation is helping end what PVA National President Charles Brown calls the over “36 years of fasting, dehydrating, and developing medical issues as a result of a lack of access to inflight lavatories.”

Join PVA and the U.S. Department of Transportation in in air travel by attending the 3/24, 10:15 EDT public meeting on the challenges passengers with mobility disabilities face during air travel. Register to attend the meeting at bit.ly/36aAYKb and email your request to speak/your responses to 's questions (bit.ly/3w51tMl) to [email protected] by 3/21.

Share to spread the word of this crucial development and this upcoming public meeting!

We have known Kevin for many years, and no that he has always been a go getter and a champion for people with disabilities. He has always helped others. He was injured early in life, he is a c6-c7 quadraplegic and even with this injury Kevin has never let his disability get him down. He has done so much in the community that we know he is well deserving of this adaptive vehicle donation.
 
“My name is Kevin Green, I would like to thank everyone at Pushrim Foundation for helping me keep my dream alive. Your donation was something I never thought I would have received, when I reached out I was looking for a little help but instead I was blessed with an adaptive van that was truly needed for me and my family. I am sure I will get wonderful use for years to come, 
It will help me by attaining more independence, and will allow me to travel with my family in comfort and safety. Being able to travel and work gives you a feeling of pride and being able to get out in the community is great. Thanks so much, your organization is a blessing to all people with disabilities.” -Kevin Green

We would like to thank our supporters and great volunteers for making this donation possible.
“The standing frame I have been given is something I will never forget.  I have thought of having a standing frame for years.  Now having and being able to use a standing frame, given to me by The Pushrim Foundation, I have less pain and can sleep better.  Using the standing frame gives me hope that some day I will be able to stand and walk in the future.
Thank you for helping me feel better.

Gracias por ayudarme a sentirme mejor.
