NEW MILFORD, N.J. — Nearly $500 had been raised as of Monday morning on a GoFundMe by a Florida woman seeking funds to build a ramp for her New Milford mom, Midge Rogoff Borer.
"As it stands, the only way for her to leave her apartment in the wheelchair would be if someone helped her because there are only stairs leading from her front door," said Samantha Borer, a zookeeper at a Florida zoo.
"When she moved in a few years ago, she was able to walk with the help of a walker and was not wheelchair bound.
"Her spinal condition has progressed significantly since then and she now uses the wheelchair as means for transportation."
