National Mobility Awareness Month

May is National Mobility Awareness Month. As such, on the website of the same name; there are thumbnail sketches of hundreds of deserving people who hope to win a wheelchair lift van. The top vote-getters will be considered for the prize. Of course, one of those "local heroes" featured is near and very dear to us, our granddaughter, Sarah Elizabeth Huffman. She's a cancer survivor with Pitt Hopkins Syndrome and a jazzy purple wheelchair. She and her family have a tired, old van that no longer meets the needs of a growing family with a handicapped child. I urge your readers to go to the following website, http://www.mobilityawarenessmonth.com/entrant/sarah-huffman-englewood-oh/, read why Sarah and her family deserve to win; and vote for her. Voting continues until May 10th, and winners will be announced May 31st. Thank you for participating in something that could make a big difference for a deserving family!

Tiffin and Port Clinton
