MATAMOROS — Cerebral palsy left Sarahi Hernandez Prado, 20, wheelchair bound since childhood. She has been disabled her whole life, but recently she received a new lease on life, thanks to the Personal Energy Transport (PET) hand-powered cart the PET Project Rio Grande Valley in Mission, and Comunidades Unidas Pro Salud (CUPS), in McAllen, gave to her.
“I want a PET so that I can sell things and be more mobile,” she said. “More than anything I want to be able to help myself, and with a PET I will be able to go places and do things I cannot do in a wheelchair.”
