This is the Give Dawn Mohr Her Independence Fund.The funds will solely be used for the purchase of Dawn's wheelchair and car hand controls.

Dawn was born with Spina Bifida and is paralyzed from her knees down. She has never let that stop her from attaining her goals. She was one of the first disabled children in her hometown in NC to attend regular classes and graduate from high school at the age of 18 in 1994. And she also attended college. Now, at the age of 36 and living in Tampa, Florida, she has no means of independence. She has a perfectly fine 2007 Toyota Corolla, but she can't drive it because it is not equipped with hand controls. So, she has to depend on friends(most of her family still lives in NC) to take her anywhere she wants or needs to go. Public transportation for the disabled doesnt come near her home. But even if she had her car perfectly modified, she still would be unable to be totally independent. Her current wheelchair is about 40 pounds and she cant lift it on her own to put it in her car. Having the proper wheelchair and hand controls would give her so much of her freedom back that she needs and desires. She needs a way to alleviate the stress of living on one income and never being able to afford the things she needs Any monies donated will solely be used for her wheelchair and hand controls.

If you have any questions, or suggestions or just need to contact someone, you can call Dawn, herself, at 336-694-3322 or email her at She knows better than anyone the answers to the questions you may have about her needs.
