MediaKrush is helping out in the fundraising campaign to buy a specialized telephone for a Las Vegas victim of Multiple Sclerosis. This patient is paralyzed from the neck down and lives alone at her home. When her daytime caregivers go home for the night she relies on her telephone to summon help.
But this is no ordinary telephone. The Konftel 300 is a teleconferencing unit that is programmed into a voice activated control center mounted on her bedrail. A caregiver knocked her Konftel phone from the shelf, and it no longer works. She can not afford repair or replacement. For now she has resorted to having a push button phone placed on her chest that she operates with a stick in her mouth.
We find this situation unacceptable and have pledged to do something about it!
Your contribution will help purchase a new Konftel phone and have it reprogrammed to her voice control unit. ANY amount you can spare will help get us to our goal of $400. You can contribute to the campaign on Crowdtilt: http://tilt.tc/9DsJ
Thank you and please share this fundraising campaign on your social networks!
