Rollator Recipient

“When I first became disabled, having a Rollator was extremely hard for me. I am in my early 30s and having to use mobility equipment was tough for me to wrap my head around. when I won the byACRE rollator in the giveaway, I was so excited. Not only because it helped me be mobile around my home it made me feel beautiful. She is absolutely my special occasion Rollator. As a former makeup artist, feeling glamorous was significant to me. When my mobility started to be affected, I feel like I lost a part of that. My byACRE Rollator definitely helped me gain that confidence back. She gave me a piece of glamor that I needed to fill the gap.”


Rollator Recipient

“Losing mobility was incredibly difficult for me, especially when it came to being independent. Having the opportunity to apply for a byACRE rollator through The AND Initiative was a tremendous gift. Within a week I had applied, received my rollator, and was experiencing mobility I didn’t think would be ever be possible with my disability. My rollator has been a wonderful tool for my independence and has allowed me to feel confident away from home and solo, plus, it is so well-made and beautiful! I am forever grateful to The AND Initiative, Jayne, and byACRE for making mobility accessible for me again; this is not something I would not have been able to achieve on my own, but is now part of my daily life.”
