WEST LINN, Ore. — The way Lisa Ledson talks about her new vehicle, you might think she got a Porsche or Ferrari.
“I feel like we won this really cool lottery,” Lisa said. “There’s nothing stopping us now.”
But Lisa’s new vehicle isn’t a sporty roadster, it’s a minivan — a wheelchair-accessible minivan that she said has changed her life.
Her daughter, Hannah, has spastic cerebral palsy and needs a wheelchair or walker to get around.
Lisa told KATU before getting the van, it could take up to 45 minutes to load both Hannah and her gear into their old Chevy Suburban.
“Something as simple as going to the grocery store was very, very challenging,” Lisa said.
