LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– After years of serving the Lexington community, a hospice nurse is getting a wheelchair accessible van to help care for her son who lives with cerebral palsy.
Bobbie Mobley has been lifting her 18-year-old son, along with his wheelchair, in and out of her SUV everytime they go to the doctor, church, or the park.
When her van started to fail, Bobbie entered a sweepstakes to win $12,000 towards a new one. She won, but needed about $5,100 more to get the van. That’s when her pastor stepped in asking her church for donations.
They raised the money for Bobbie to afford a 2017 Dodge minivan.
“Now we’re able to go and do a lot more things than we were before because I don’t have to worry about I’m going to have to lift him, I’m going to have to lift his chair. Now I just roll him in, roll him out, we’re there.”
Bobbie says her life and her son’s are forever changed.
