The Story

Hickman, NE

Lori Champion has been happily married to her husband Jon for almost nine years. Jon is currently stationed in Las Vegas as a civilian for the United States Air Force. Lori’s friends and their kids are staying with her to help her out while Jon is in Nevada.

Currently, Lori is pursuing a master’s degree in gerontology at the University of Nebraska Omaha, where she takes online classes. When she isn’t studying or working on assignments, she enjoys knitting, crocheting, has a love of animals, and a passion for traveling. Unfortunately, due to her condition Lori has been unable to live a life she loves.

In 2006, Lori noticed she was starting to lose most of the vision in her left eye. This was concerning to her and prompted her to make an appointment with her eye doctor. The eye doctor was convinced it was Lori’s contacts that were causing the issue, but deep down Lori knew this was not the case. This urged her to seek attention from another eye doctor. Within minutes of her appointment, Lori was diagnosed with Optic Neuritis and was sent to specialists who determined that the cause of this condition was Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

Lori’s condition has started to impact her life tremendously within the last four years. She has been unable to drive for two years which has been difficult because the small town she resides in doesn’t have public transportation. Due to the severity of Lori’s condition, she has trouble completing tasks around the house, walking, carrying things, and picking things up. “A certain amount of my loss of independence has come from fear as well. Having a constant companion who is always there to help me, catch me, and keep me steady will take away so much of the fear and give me the confidence to do things and be more active,” said Lori.

Lori hopes to raise $14,000 through RedBasket.org to purchase a mobility assistance dog through Domesti-PUPS. Receiving a service dog would help Lori regain much of her independence. “I will be able to walk more and rely less on other people to help me,” said Lori. By making a tax-deductible donation, you can help Lori get back to living a life she loves and help her get her independence back. Donate and share her story today!
