CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Anna Chavez has been caring for her daughter for almost three decades. Her daughter Amber was hit by a drunk driver in 1993, and Chavez has had to take care of her daughter ever since.

However, it has been difficult for her to travel places with Amber because she lacks access to a vehicle that is accessible to her.

"Now it is extremely difficult, because she is a lot older, she is now 32 and a little over 130 pounds, so I am able to transfer her but it takes a lot of work," she said.

Anna has had to carry Amber into her Jeep and her wheel chair as well but it is no easy task.

"Special events like the aquarium, things that we used to do all the time with her, we haven't been able to do cause it's really hard for me to do, and trying to get her into the Jeep alone is very hard, so I don't do it as often as I used to," she said.
