One of the mission projects of Springville Community Presbyterian Church for the last 20 years has been raising funds for Nancy Lower’s care as a quadriplegic.

Nancy is an extraordinary woman, living and enjoying every day after 20 years of being paralyzed from the neck down. The usual life-span of people with quadriplegia is short and is even shorter for persons who are paralyzed later in life, like Nancy, who was in her early 60s when she had the accident while working as Head of Medical Services for the Peace Corps in Mauritania, West Africa.

Expenses for Nancy’s care include paid workers, medication, and the expense of running a 2012 Dodge Wheelchair Van. The total expenses were $48,000 last year, and so we have set a goal of $48,000 for this year’s fundraising appeal. Visit https://www.gofundme.com/caring-for-nancy-lower to donate.

Nancy and her husband George have been caring residents of Springville for over 40 years. George Lower is a retired pastor of the Springville Community and Orem Community churches. Nancy is a nurse practitioner who worked at the State Hospital in Provo. They have served and enjoyed the community. This is an opportunity to give back to them.r
