Hello. My name is Tyler, i'm 18, and I was diagnosed with SMA. Spinal Muscular Atrophy is a condition that lowers the strength of muscles to near infantile, if you have my type.

Our wheelchair accessible van had broken down a few years back, and besides school, i've been bound to my house, completely. Only able to roll myself a few blocks down, until stopped with incredibly steep curbs.

The repairs for our current van are astronomically expensive (Engine, and electrical), so we're shooting for buying a used van, and using a program to get our current lift transferred over.

I myself have talked to countless program directors, and they've all told me the same thing. "We can't help you get a van, but we can help you transfer your current adaptations"

I can't go anywhere with my friends, nor family unless carted around in my manual chair, which is far more uncomfortable than my powered chair. The pain caused by my manual chair is almost unbearable after only a half hour of using it. I've got scoliosis, which prompted us to get my powered chair with a custom fit backing to alleviate my pain, and I can't even use it outside of my home.

Every single donation is deep heartedly appreciated. I put the donation at 10,000 because it'd be great to get a nice used van, but if this somehow makes it past the goal, every single cent will be put toward a better van.

12/7/2013 Edit: I recently found out that with the right adaptations, I could drive. This is absolutely amazing to me, because I never thought that was possible. Now more than ever I need your help! This would be COMPLETELY life changing for me.
