I live in Melrose, Massachusetts which is a suburb of Boston. A friend of mine is a single mom raising a severely handicapped son. Her son is unable to walk and uses a wheelchair. Unfortunately entering and exiting their home requires one to navigate a few steps. AND if you yourself are handicapped or know someone who is, steps makes life harder. For years, twice a day during the school year, my friend would have to place her son within eyesight, and then walk backward carrying the heavy wheelchair down the steps, all the while ready to drop the thing, and tend to her son if he son needed immediate assistance as he often does. I ran into her not to long ago and asked about her son. She had told me that through some connection she had come in contact with an ex Boston College football player (Gosder Cherilus) who ran a non profit. Long story short, Mr Cherilus foundation paid for a wheelchair ramp to be installed. She said it has changed her and her sons life.
