After four months of intensive-care treatment and rehabilitation following a rollover accident in Kings Canyon that left her paralyzed, Stefanie Schmidt is now home in Carson City, NV, adjusting to her new life.

"This may not have been the path we chose, but this is the path we're on now," said her father, Mike Schmidt. "Out mantra is, 'Always forward.'"

 

Moving forward got a little easier for Stefanie on March 23 when Rupert's Auto Body donated a handicap-adaptive 2000 Lexus to the 15-year-old girl, who had just received her learner's permit before the accident.
