Barbara P., 71, Erie, PA

Barbara Paproski, 71, a resident of Erie, PA recently had her wish for a new lift chair granted. Her old one was broken beyond repair and her family was worried that she would fall trying to stand up on her own. Barbara is a prolific reader and spends much of her time in her chair, but couldn’t afford to replace her old chair and neither could her family. Barbara raised two sons as a single mother and worked as a nurse for 35 years. She volunteered extensively in her community with the Boy Scouts, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Hamot Mental Health Advisory Board, and the American Association of Critical Care Nurses.  In addition, she is a concierge at St. Joseph Apartments where she lives and volunteered on their entertainment committee. Her wish for a new lift chair was granted in July of 2015.
