CoreyZ "Meet at the Truck Stop at 44th and Kipling at 0745
Main Parking lot on the south side"

I dont know the area and Google Maps isnt showing a "truck stop" near that intersection. Any other landmarks or stores to look for?

They'd see the little truck come up (I could hear it going down the hallway) then I'd turn around and drive it back the room I was tethered to the bed in. The nurses loved it and they'd follow my little truck back in to see what I needed.

My case, I fell out of a tree and broke my femer. I had to have cables and pins and all sorts of crap to hold my leg together and pull the bones back into place (traction) before I was able to even get into a body cast. Then, once the cast came off my leg was about as skinny as my arm and I had almost a year of therapy and a wheelchair until I could to learn to walk again on my own. I def. learned really fast how bad kids with disabilities have a hard time fitting in. All I did was break my leg... Not cancer, not abnormalities, but because I had a wheelchair and walker I was teased horribly be people at school to the point of tears over and over. I guess some kids need to do that shit to feel better about themselves.

I guess it made me who I am today. I have a very deep level of simpathy for kids after all that. Adults to, anyone who is different I guess. People need to be nice to other human beings, period.
Great story! My son was there as a newborn and the staff was incredible! Our group certainly tries to give back in any way we can. Life has its way of teaching us all the lessons we need and I'm glad you learned from your misfortune.

LadyTJ Amy, it might be easier to meet with me. I will make sure Chad gets them tho I'll PM you my number
06-25-2013 02:46 PM
JeepandMud Chad, I'm hoping to get the clearance letter by Thursday. Where did you want to meet up and at what time? I know you work, so not sure when would be good for you.

Colo-TJ Looks like I picked up a few more rigs coming from my Job......This is a great opportunity to do some good in this crazy world. Come on guys......once again if you need to to pick something up from you and carry it with me don't be shy.
If it's to difficult for you to shop for a toy then next time your at the store grab up a gift card and they will go get what they need at the time.
Thanks to those that have already helped out!!!!
