"I walked into the Equipment Connection overwhelmed, emotionally depressed, and unsure at how to assist my loved one. I was in dire need of a ramp to aid in safely bringing my mother in and out of our home. We usually take daily walks around our neighborhood, but lately its been extremely difficult lifting her and the wheelchair down the side of our home in the grass. Equipment Connection blessed myself and my mom. Now we can run errands, go to medical appointments, and take walks without the wear and tear on my back. Thank you."http://ow.ly/Ue1430rJAZO
