Here are a couple of photos of the new chair!!! I'm still getting use to it but it's so nice being able to get in and out of it without feeling like it's about to fall forward. I truly can't thank you all enough! I'll be doing more follow up. Best Valentine's gift ever thanks to all you!

Another batch of photos have been mailed out! Only a few more to go.

I wanted to thank everyone who have received their images in the mail for posting photos of them and tagging me as well as the kind words. After a rough start to my week I needed it and seeing those really made my day!

Those who live in Philly, I wanted to try to actually deliver the images in person but well mother nature laughed at that idea!

The chair is due to arrive tomorrow but I think it might get delayed because of the weather.

I again thank everyone for being patient with me. :)

I have been struggling for the better part of 3 years to get my wheelchair repaired or replaced only to find myself between a rock and a hard place. One of the major issues I am facing with certain companies is they wont fix my chair because I did not purchase it from them.

After making costly repairs myself, I've been attempting to get a new wheelchair through my insurance for 2 years. Due to all the red tape, this process has been made more difficult than it was 7 years ago. Now my chair is starting to come apart and I need help before my mobility becomes difficult.

The wheelchair I'm in need of will cost between $5,000 and $7,000. I have set a goal of $5,000 with the hopes that we are able to raise much more. This will allow me to repair my old wheelchair and donate that to someone in need.


Be sure to check out the videos below for my personal story.

Thank you for all your support,

Jaleel

We are so happy for you, Jaleel. We enjoyed the print we received in the mail. It's going straight into a frame and up on the wall in our studio.

I've always thought that if something happened to me and I couldn't walk anymore the worst part would be that I wouldn't be able to do what I love, which is photography. Now I know it doesn't have to stop you. Thank you for your bravery and inspiration!
