Hilly campus or not, Sara Whitestone won't allow her need for a wheelchair to prevent her from attending the University of Cincinnati. She started at UC on Aug. 27, 2012, in biological sciences. Sara's goal is to chase down a cure for her disease, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, and she is convinced UC is the place to do it. Friends and family started a nonprofit to purchase a $12,000 motor-assisted wheelchair so she could get around campus. Now that Sara has her new chair and made it to UC, her nonprofit organization, called Sara Spins, is raising funds to help others who are disabled pursue their higher education dream.
