Melissa Vander Vennet Story

 Melissa Vander Vennet, a life-long equestrian, highly regarded in Orlando’s hunter jumper community. Melissa suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury from a fall, resulting in paralysis below the sternum.

 While remaining strong, faithful, and optimistic, Melissa is determined to maintain her independence, and do everything in her power to live her life to the fullest. Unfortunately, her condition requires expensive medical equipment, intensive and ongoing rehabilitation, and accommodations for transportation and daily living. Our goal is to help Melissa concentrate on her recovery, while lessening her financial burdens.
