'I Am So Proud Of You': How A Woman With Down Syndrome Became A Self-Advocate

Lisa Schaffel and her mother Linda

Linda Schaffel changed many things about her life when her daughter Lisa was born with a disability. They came to the StoryCorps mobile booth in Oklahoma City to talk about the ways Lisa has surprised her along the way.

This story was produced for KOSU by Rachel Hubbard and Dustin Drew, with interviews recorded at the StoryCorps mobile booth in Oklahoma City in early 2018. Locally recorded stories air Wednesdays during Morning Edition and All Things Considered on KOSU.
