Valdosta, GA- Crystal Anderson is a wife, a mother to a two-year old boy and a full time college professor.
Anderson is also living with Muscular Dystrophy.
She and her sister Misty Hayes, from Colquitt, Georgia were both born with the disease.
"We never saw our quote 'disability,' others see it and you know, can remind us of it, but we just try to live our life to overcome it," Anderson said.
That's one of the reasons Anderson and her sister have entered an online contest hosted by The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association.
With each vote they receive, they'll be one step closer to owning a handicapped accessible van.
"We are trying to lead active lives and just like you, we need transportation, but unfortunately we can't just use any car because you can't put your chair in there," she added.
Anderson says having reliable transportation would help in her quest to redefine the world, 'impossible.'
"If you look at the word impossible, sure it says, impossible, but if you change your perspective, it actually says, 'I'm Possible,' so I try to always attach the word, 'I'm possible' to anything that I'm told is impossible," Anderson said.
The last day to vote is May 9th. (People can cast a vote every day.)
