Now I can ... give my family a lift

After a paralyzing car wreck, Nikosha Anderson worked hard to get her life back on track. She juggled rehab, going back to college and caring for her son R.J.

And like many wheelchair users, she faced the daily challenge of finding transportation. So Nikosha enrolled in Methodist Rehab’s DriverRehabilitation Program to learn how to drive a vehicle modified with hand controls.

Her next challenge was finding her own vehicle. Her prayers were answered when she was selected to receive a van that was donated to MRC by an anonymous donor, while its modifications were funded by the Mississippi Department of Rehabilitation Services.

“I couldn’t really believe it,” Anderson said of the gift. “Now I can do more for myself. I get to take my baby to school in the morning, drive myself to class and go to appointments.”
