Chloe’s van has changed her life

August 26, 2015

“When the van pulled into our driveway that first day we felt like we won the lottery. I could not have been happier if I were given a million dollars.”

Chloe's mom, Julie, told us that recently. Nothing warms our hearts faster than hearing how grants from Chive Fund have changed lives. Chloe is doing well, having both "good days and bad days but mostly good." She's still going to the doctor's a lot, and that's where having the van goes from being a luxury to a necessity. Chloe can recline in her wheelchair and watch Barney on long trips, she is very happy every time she rides in her van. 

Julie ended with, "I hope Chive Charities and their donors know how much their generosity helped our family. Caring for a child with special needs can be very trying and stressful but it can also be a gift and an adventure. Chloe can not speak but she has always communicated with her eyes and the first time she got in her van I could see relief and excitement in her eyes. If she could speak she would have said thank you so much! So behalf on Chloe and my family - thank you so much!"
