Stairway to comfort: Hadleigh’s Story

A letter from Ms. Hadleigh Coyne, who received funding from ACHIEVA Family Trust for a home modification.

Dear ACHIEVA Family Trust,

I wanted to thank you for the stair lift. For about ten months, my bed was downstairs in our living room, due to me being in recovery from spinal fusion surgery. I had very little privacy and was constantly being woken up anytime someone walked down our front hall.

Now that I have my stair lift, I've been able to move back into my bedroom upstairs. This is a tremendous help to me, as I now have my privacy back. I'm so happy to be able to go up and down the stairs easily again, and I can't thank you enough for giving us that opportunity. It truly means the world to me.
