Tammy and Donald Redmon deal with her illness every day and a community wide effort is underway to raise money for a specially equipped van to transport her to doctor's appointments and other places.
Community rallies around disabled woman to raise money for special van

Tammy Redmon lives a quiet life; she has never been nationally recognized or cited for any daring act of heroism.

But the 52-year-old Shelbyville woman greets each day with as much dignity and courage as she can muster in her lifelong battle with lymphangioama, a condition that has left her wheelchair-bound with an amputated leg.

Still, she preseveres with the help of a specially equipped van with which she can travel to necessary errands, such as doctor's appointments.
