This young lady, Rhana Fleming, has Transverse Myelitis which is the same neurological disease that we all have... Rhana is now 15 years old I believe and had her onset when she was 12. She was a very accomplished gymnast at the time and now is basically 24/7 in a chair. She has lost almost total use of the right side of her body..https://www.facebook.com/groups/RhanasJourney/ Since her onset, her father Robert Fleming has been a champion for not only Rhana but for the disabled in general after seeing some of the challenges that his daughter has endured. He recently just opened a website which is a site for discounts for those that are disabled. It is free to register on the site and all of the discounts available are offered to the disabled person and their caregiver, from the company or manufacturer. It is the company or manufacturer that is paying to advertise their service and coupon on the website...http://disabilitydiscount.com/ This is all completely and totally legit as I run a Transverse Myelitis support group on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/TMFolk) and have known Rhana and her dad since they first joined the group. If anyone has any questions you can PM me or Robert Fleming .. Thank you and help us support the site.....The more members he has on the site, the more companies will ultimately end up participating and offering thing.
