All proceeds from the evening will benefit Tami Turner. Tami is an accomplished, well-educated, woman of great determination and resolve to live successfully and independently, despite living with a physical disability and the challenges she faces. At the age of 17, Tami sustained paralysis due to a gymnastics accident. Her body can be medically defined as quadriplegic, but her mind and spirit are strong, creative and vibrant.
Before Tami paralysis, she was very involved in many extra curricular activities, including acting with PCPA Solvang Theatrefest, participating as a majorette with The Santa Maria Batonettes Baton and Drum Corps and Santa Maria High School Marching Band, an equestrian member of Santa Maria Roping and Riding Club, a Most Valuable Player with the Santa Maria High School gymnastics team where she also qualified for CIF, and an officer/member of Job's Daughters.
Tami Turner has worked exceptionally hard at achieving her degree and becoming an active and vital person with a disability in her community. She values her independence immensely. She is not one who thrives at remaining in her home continuously. Ms. Turner flourishes when being involved with programs to enhance her community and to better the lives of families. To have the ability to continue her goal of employment and independence, she is greatly in need of a handicapped modified van.
The van will allow Tamara to have much needed independence for travel to work, purchasing supplies, participating in community outreach for the healthcare or children's services facility, to take care of her personal needs that include medical appointments, grocery shopping, attending church, leisure activities, and veterinary appointments for her much loved companion Acacia.
Tamara is an experienced driver with a strong track record since 1982. She has recently been evaluated for The Scott Driving System touch pad console with tripins for steering, acceleration, and brakes on 4/7/2012. She requires a vehicle with a lowered floor, lift or ramp, power doors, lift/ramp/door switches, elbow operation switch type for turn signals, horn, cruise control, high beams, & windshield wipers, rubberized texture flooring, permolock securement for her Permobil wheelchair, quick release set for able bodied driver seat, driver's seat securement, armrests, and a battery cut-off switch.
Tamara looks forward to a vehicle so that she may help children and their families improve their life situations. She also hopes to continue being visible in society to educate others about disabilities, which in turn will break down attitudinal barriers. In the near future, Ms. Turner also plans to volunteer for a non-profit organization, such as Domestic Violence Solutions Inc., CASA, and for children's theatre.
Unfortunately, Ms. Turner is financially incapable of purchasing a used handicapped modified vehicle. She receives a monthly payment from SSDI. Her fixed income allows her to pay for housing, attendant care, and medical and household bills.
