I have a child with several health problems. Thankfully we have insurance to cover medical expenses but they do not cover homeopathic remedies. Since medical treatments were not working we wanted to try a Lavender Bear that heats in the microwave for my then 2 year old son. He could put it on his legs when his PLMD and restless leg syndrom acted up. I couldn't afford the $35 bear. Walk on Foundation contacted the company that has the bears and she donated one to my son. We can do a lot of things from home, but calling someone to say you don't have the money is hard. WOF did what I couldn't do for my son. Thanks again WOF!!!!
as the mother to many special blessings our infant son was in need of an oxygen/heart monitor. Walk on Heros Foundation stepped up front and forward and made sure that his needs were provided for. our son has left our arms for Jesus' but WOHF made his quality of life much more comfortable while he was on this earth. we are forever endebted to this awesome organization as they stepped up as others stepped back. thank you and God bless. sue tolin, mom to Christopher BayLee Tolin
I am a 30 year old female with different medical conditions. I was in need of money to travel a distance to pick up a handicapp van and I had no means to pick it up. WOF provided the money needed for me to be able to get the van and bring it home. I am greatful for what they have done. I had no way to be able to pay for the travel.
I cannot say enough good about this foundation! Our son suffers from a large array of disabilities, and was in need of a fully enclosed bed to keep him safe at night. The bed he had been using was one he had had since age 3...and he was now 16...and no longer fit into his old bed. I posted a wish on Wish Upon A Hero, for a device to fit over his bed, to keep him safe at night... this was seen by Walk On...and they found someone to donate a fully enclosed bed to our son...not only the bed, but they also found a company to ship it to us as well! God bless them for this amazing gift to our child...finally he can sleep safe, and comfortably in a bed that fits him! His first night in that bed...he gave us the biggest smile...a smile we hadn't seen in a LONG while! He was SO happy to be able to stretch out, and not have to sleep with bent legs,all scrunched up.... Walk On is a Godsend to those of us who simply cannot afford the costs of much needed medical equipment...We never could have gotten this bed without their amazing help! Walk On Foundation has this family's undying gratitude and heart-felt thanks....they are simply put...Amazing!
I was having a horrible time with allergies and it was affecting my asthma. The same with my 6 yr old daughter. I wished for one air filtration allergy machine. I would then lug it back and forth up and down the steps of my apartment. Walk On Foundation generously donated two of these machines so I could have one on each floor. Within 2-3 days of receiving the machines, I could not believe the relief! If it was not for Walk On Foundation, I would be so much worse of health wise. They help many people like me who are dealing with no insurance or are under-insured. They are truly amazing!!!!
The Walk on Foundation has been generously helping us raise money for my son to get an allergy detection dog. Once we contacted them within a week they had set up newspaper and radio interviews, 50/50 raffle ticket fundraiser, and had a stand set up for us at their annual Christmas Extravaganza. All of this helped to raise awareness to our need and help collect much more money then we could have on our own. Without the Walk on Foundation's help I know that we wouldn't have come as far as we have with raising the funds needed for my son's service dog.
