It began with a wish and ended with a new railing.
Joanna, a 24-year-old from Allison Park, PA, had to discontinue her college studies three times in the past few years due to two major health problems. Due to her condition, her family home needed some renovations to make the environment safer and easier for her.
Her uncle, David Kurkiewicz, nominated Joanna’s home for a new walkway and railings on the Angie’s List Wishmakers site. The change, he said, would make it safer for Joanna to maneuver in and out of the house since her frail condition affects her balance and ability to walk.
“Joanna’s has been in and out of the hospital for years now,” Kurkiewicz wrote in his Wishmakers nomination. “She has patience and strength to endure pain and suffering in a way that not many are burdened.”
Angie’s List, the well known business review site, has paired highly rated service companies with those in need since 2004.
