To Benefit

I chose the Inglis House in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in honor of my mother, Cathy, who lived there the last two years of her life. In addition to the specialty nursing care she received, she had the chance to fall in love again, sit in the sun, and live out her life with dignity and choice. The Inglis house provides programs and services designed to enable people with physical disabilities to enjoy life with the greatest amount of independence and mobility. Inglis works with people with physical disabilities to create and provide practical solutions so they may pursue their life goals.

Melissa's Pledge
