Mayber, who has a spinal cord injury, on August 25 at a “Sock Hop” dance event hosted by the station. The van was the top item on her wish list, followed by her desire to attend a sock hop. The family couldn’t afford the van on top of medical expenses, but the wheelchair accessible van became a priority after Melissa’s mom suffered a heart attack trying to lift Melissa into a vehicle for her doctor’s visit. WZSR-FM on-air personalities regularly promoted their fundraising efforts for the van in the months leading up to the sock hop.
