Deborah Bogar has osteoarthritis and posture problems that cause discomfort and fatigue. As a result, she walks with a cane. While there is no cure for her condition, she found she can â€œadjustâ€ her attitude. â€œMy motherâ€™s motto was, â€˜If I have to, I can,â€™â€ said Bogar of Lower Paxton Twp. â€œAt the same time, you have to realize itâ€™s all right to ask for help.â€
Her positive outlook, coupled with the awareness that those with limited mobility might need assistance, led Bogar to found Cool Cane Graphix, a business that sells individually and colorfully designed canes.
