Scottsdale family whose daughter has cerebral palsy gets new wheelchair accessible van

The Stedman family of Scottsdale is no stranger to adversity. They’ve triumphed over cancer, ADHD, Dyslexia and Cerebral Palsy. Their eight-year-old daughter, Sage, has cerebral palsy and is non-mobile. She was diagnosed at the age of four months.

Not having a safe and accessible vehicle to transport a child in a wheelchair can cause isolation, discouragement, frustration, and depression. That’s one of the many reasons the Stedman family wanted to get an accessible vehicle for Sage.

“Sage has a power chair and it is a joy to see her enjoy this newfound independence, but we’ve been unable to transport it,” said Mrs. Stedman. “Although she can take her chair to school on the bus, her schedule does not allow her to take the bus every day.”

The Stedman family has been searching desperately for the best wheelchair accessible vehicle for their daughter. “But, in addition to the large expense of such a vehicle, we have extra medical bills due to her father’s stage 4 cancer diagnosis,” said Mrs. Stedman, who added that her family has also been working hard to raise funds to help pay for it.

Thankfully, the Steelman Family Foundation, which assists families in need who are trying to purchase their own wheelchair accessible vehicle, has chosen to help Sage Stedman and her family.

It’s Time to Winterize

It’s that time of year when the roads can be hard to navigate between the snow and the ice. Make sure you and your vehicle are ready for the winter weather. Vehicles today are smarter to help you maneuver driving in bad weather, but there are still a few steps you can take to be proactive and safe. Here’s a short list of things to check:

  • Antifreeze: It is important to have the correct antifreeze/water mixture to prevent fluid from freezing in your radiator. Consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual for information.
  • Battery: Check your battery. Cold weather is tough on your car’s battery. During cold weather, your engine requires more current from the battery in order to get the engine started. Make sure it’s up to the job.
  • Windshield Wiper Blades: Wiper blades are only good for a year. Replace yours if they look frayed or worn.
  • Windshield Wiper Fluid: Use freeze-resistant wiper fluid to keep your windshield clean and your vision clear.
  • Tires: Check your tires. Low air pressure and worn tires are especially dangerous on wet or slick roads, as both can reduce traction. Check your owner’s manual for the recommended PSI.
  • Oil: Check to make sure your oil levels are full.
Car Tires On Winter Road
  • Emergency Kit: Be prepared in case of an emergency. Keeping a safety kit in your car all year is a good idea, but especially important in those colder winter months. Items to include in your winter safety kit include:
    • Phone charger
    • Flashlight
    • Blanket, leather gloves, and hat
    • Bag of kitty litter or sand
    • Ice scraper and brush
    • Small shovel
    • Safe and leak-proof container of coolant
    • Snacks

If you don’t have time or you aren’t able to do the maintenance yourself, make sure you take your vehicle to a professional so you are safe on the roads during the winter months. If you want to make an appointment, with United Access, call us at 877-501-8267 or book your service appointment online.
