Bonnie isn’t your normal resident, she is an amazing neighbor and inspiring woman. Seventeen years ago Bonnie was diagnosed with a medical condition that would change her life forever, Multiple Sclerosis. Bonnie had an active lifestyle, was raising her teenage son, and doctors told her that her future would soon include a wheelchair. After battling the initial impact of the diagnosis, Bonnie sprang into action. She started researching how to live with her diagnosis, staying healthy, active, and strong. Working with her doctors and paying attention to her body, she continues to have an active lifestyle, taking daily walks, working part-time at the local visitor’s center, and sharing her enthusiasm for life with everyone she encounters.
Bonnie celebrates the day she was diagnosed each year as her “Birthday” as saying, "Every year I get to celebrate that I am still walking, working, and moving, MS is not who I am". She decided to defy the odds astonishing her doctors, family members, and her neighbors at Wind River Apartments by staying very active to this day. Bonnie often helps her neighbors and around the community. Providing a smile and friendly spirit, she goes the extra mile bringing home-baked treats for her neighbors and our office staff. Bonnie is a one of a kind inspiration, taking the negative in life and turning it into a positive opportunity, never giving up the fight.
Thank you for being a bright light at Wind River Apartments, we are fortunate to have you.
