Story Summary

When Ameia Ferguson needed some extra support, she found it in the form of a superhero-inspired chair known as ‘Wonder Woman.’

The recliner was provided by The Healing Chair, a nonprofit organization that loans chairs to women who have recently undergone breast cancer surgery. Volunteers deliver and set up the chair before surgery, along with special support pillows, a blanket and a journal. The chair not only allows patients to sleep in an inclined position, it also raises up and down so patients can get out of the chair without help.
