Who helped her in her situation

Who helped her in her situation

  • Well most of her family helped her and defiantly all her friends along with her best friend Alana. They all had to adjust to how she could do things so they could help with what she needed to do. For the first few days she needed lots of help with her walking and doing things with only one arm. It was like teaching a baby things all over again, the eating, going toilet and all those things.
