Today’s the last day to help Edna Escher-Gaston, a Swarthmore grandmother, win the title of “Best Mom on Wheels.”
She’s one of 10 finalists in a contest run by the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, named for the Superman star who became a quadriplegic and his devoted wife.
Karen Dechaux of West Chester, makes a compelling case for her mother, calling her “my best friend and role model.”
Dechaux was only 8, growing up in Swarthmore, when a terrible accident on I-95 left her newly divorced mother paralyzed from the waist down.
A lot of people would have give up, gotten depressed.
