Meet my son, Danny.
He is six years old. He has Periventricular Leukomalacia and Cerebral Palsy. Developmentally, he is about 12-18 months old. He can speak only a few phrases that he has learned to repeat when he wants something, and he is unable to walk.
He is also not the only disabled member of my family. My oldest son, who I call Ewie, is ten. He has what used to be called Asperger's Syndrome, but is now simply referred to an Autistic Spectrum Disorder, I believe. And I have Secondary Parkinsonism, which is simply Parkinson's Disease that was brought on by another medication. I won't say what medicine it was for fear of being sued. :)
Back to Danny. He is in a wheelchair as you can see here:
And, it is getting more and more difficult to get him around due to his growing height and weight. It is also getting more and more difficult for me to lift him in and out of the car due to my disabilities.
To get to the point, we need a handicap accessible vehicle. Our car just isn't going to cut it anymore. And since we live on social security disability benefits, we can't afford one on our own. That's where you come in.
We have a crowdfunding fundraiser set up at YouCaring.com. They don't charge any fees to use their site, so all donations would go directly to the purchase of the van. If you could find it in your hearts to donate anything at all, it will add up fast.
As a thank you, I am hosting a giveaway for a $10 Sonic gift card. I also have a friend who has agreed to give 10% of all donations to the winner in the form of either PayPal cash or an Amazon gift card. This could be really big if we get enough people helping out.
