HBF is proud to announce Teresa N. as our keynote speaker at this year’s Annual Celebration. Teresa’s outgoing and dynamic personality have endeared her to everyone she has met at HBF. We cannot wait for her to share her story next Thursday at the Vehicle Vault.
Teresa was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (also known as brittle bone disease), a rare genetic disorder that affects the bones. At 33-years-old, Teresa is a little over three feet tall and utilizes a power wheelchair. In 2021, she was excited to purchase a home in Westminster but found the stairways leading to the front and rear entrances challenging in her wheelchair. She applied, and was approved for, a front entry ramp, which was built as a part of our 12th Annual Blitz Build.
There is nothing that can keep her down. Teresa shares “I hope to model to other people with disabilities what independence can continue to look like, with the resources that are available to me and my family.”
