Abbey Hunter is beginning her senior year pursuing her Bachelors of Science in Interior Design at the University of Cincinnati. After graduation, she plans to continue working at a design firm and study for her NCIDQ Registered Interior Designer Licensure.
Abbey became sick in 2009 and after countless doctor visits, she was diagnosed with Autonomic Dysfunction in the spring of 2012, her senior year of high school. She was mostly dependent on her clunky manual wheelchair and was nervous about navigating the hilly campus.
She saw Sara on campus testing out her new wheels just days before starting college at UC and asked her about the wheelchair learned about Sara Spins.
In December of 2012, Sara Spins was able to provide Abbey with a customized wheelchair and Smart Drive technology. These devices helped reduce her fatigue and led to a successful first year of college.
As Abbey’s conditioned worsened she sought out the POTS Treatment Center. May 2016 marks the three years post-treatment and her health has immensely improved. She no longer uses the wheelchair and ran her first 5K non-stop in November of 2014. She has a passion for helping others and is a member of several support groups both online and in-person for those suffering with chronic illness or disabilities.
