The recent floods in Louisiana were devastating, killing 13 people, and wreaking havoc on thousands of homes. The Doctors are joined by a flood victim, whose world was forever changed by the rising waters.
Lindsey, who has severe cerebral palsy, has been able to successfully live independently in a home behind her mother’s house. When the flooding began in Livingston Parish, where 21 inches of rain fell in just 24 hours, her home was destroyed, her wheelchair was wrecked and her wheelchair accessible van was damaged beyond use.
She joins The Doctors to share her story, explaining that one of the hardest aspects was losing her wheelchair.
“It was my legs and independence that I lost,” she says.
Just as difficult, was the loss of her wheelchair accessible van. She used the special automobile to travel back and forth between home and a daycare center where she volunteers.
In an attempt to help Lindsey in this difficult time, The Doctors surprise her with a new wheelchair from our friends at Quantum Rehab. The surprises did not stop there! We also surprise her and her family with new appliances and home furnishings, from Maytag and Panama Jack. Mobility Ventures also gifted Lindsey with something that is bound to change her life for the better, see the big reveal in the video below!
