Brandy Summerfield, second from right, sits in the kitchen with her five children as her daughter Trinity, 17, left, cleans up and her daughter Kaylee, 19, cares for her youngest son, Brayden, 3. Seated at the kitchen table with mom are Davina, 6, center and David, 4, right. Summerfield struggles to perform normal, everyday tasks, like going to the grocery store or taking her children to their doctor appointments. She depends on other people for almost everything. Summerfield has congenital hip dysplasia, which she says resulted in her right femur not developing properly as she grew when she was a child. The disorder has affected her left knee and caused scoliosis in her spine. Among other issues, she also suffers from spinal stenosis, tendonitis and sciatica. The Wellspring Women’s Center has asked Book of Dreams to help provide Summerfield with a motorized scooter “in hopes for enhancing her mobility and leading her to a more active lifestyle.”
