Road to Recovery

Go here for Part I

Go here for Part II

Day in the Life

Go here for Part I.

Emmy Saenz recounts the day of the tragic accident that took her mobility from the next down. While the journey ahead promises to be long and challenging Saenz is still able to find the silver lining. 

Go here for Part II.

In the final part of this series Emmy Saenz and her family invite Newscenter 25’s Bria Woods into their home to spend the day with Saenz and observe the modifications she’s had to make in her new life as a quadriplegic.

Saenz and her family are still in need of funds for a new manual wheelchair that has a smart drive motor which costs approximately $10,000. Insurance won’t cover the cost of her wheelchair. The family also needs to repair their driveway because it has many cracks that makes it unsafe when trying to get Emmy in and out of the car using the Hoyer as it gets stuck in the cracks.
