Game-changer for Joseph

Andrew Skinner February 21, 2023 News, Triumph Outreach Update, Videos

By most measures, Joseph has faced some of the toughest challenges anyone can endure. In 2003, a violent crime left him paralyzed from the neck down and relying on a ventilator to breathe. He was robbed of his mobility, his self-reliance, and the ability to provide and protect his family.

Joseph's love for his daughter and new granddaughter has kept him going and looking forward, despite his obstacles. He's determined to make a positive impact on the world, starting with his family.

Homebound without adequate transportation, an accessible van would be a game changer for Joseph, opening up new opportunities for him to be more involved in his daughter and granddaughter's lives, attend events, go to the store and doctor's appointments, and even go back to school.

"Thank God I had my family to be there for me... and my daughter to live for"

We're thrilled to announce that with the help of our donors and supporters, you have made it possible for us to surprise Joseph with a ramp van!  Triumph recieved this van as a donation, so we repaired it and launched a special essay contest to donate it to the best recipient. Joseph applied and was chosen!

This incredible gift will help him live a better life and make a difference in the world. We're excited about his journey and adventures ahead as an abuello.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Triumph Foundation and our mission to help people with disabilities lead independent and fulfilling lives.

"The momentum we’ve built serving the paralysis community doesn’t stop. It can’t. Each one of us who have been impacted by Triumph Foundation in small ways or great, have discovered our own motivation that pushes us to achieve new things each and every day, and by doing so, we motivate others to embark on their own journey of recovery and restoration. That’s what momentum is all about."
