Drum Roll please!!! We have crossed another milestone! So grateful for the people with big hearts helping us out! Kmoney will love the van we found & it will fit our needs for him. Please share us with your friends! We can do this!
Van update! We have our eye on a beautiful blue van! We need $7,000 more to make this happen! We are so grateful to all who have helped us, we are almost there! We are trying to raise the money ASAP as they won't hold it forever & we really need it to bring him home from his back surgery in May. It is too hard to get him out of the back seat and I don't think he will tolerate it after surgery! I checked into rentals & they are $110.00/day. We are trying to get a Nelsons Porta pit event set up for April, will keep you posted! Please share our need with your friends, every little bit helps! Donations can be made on our gofundme page, or message me for the address to mail a check! Thank you!!!
Fingers crossed!! They have a van in South Bend we may be able to get! Going to look at it tomorrow night! We are raising our goal to 32,000, this will make the van a reality and also help cover what we need to pay on the power chair, & we might be able to get a portable oxygen concentrator to make travel when oxygen is required a lot easier! Thank you all for your support! As soon as warm weather hits we will start fundraising again! Until then all donations are appreciated more than words can express! Thank you! Fingers crossed for the van!!!
Remembering that Jesus is the reason for the season as we prepare for Christmas!!! We have been truly blessed this year by all of the support for Kmoney's new ride and are keeping our eyes open for the best possible deal!! We hope to be able to have his van soon as it is getting harder to get him in and out of our vehicles. We pray that God will richly bless each and every one of you who have been so kind and helped us with donations and/or working fund raising events! We have learned of a few power chair features which insurance will not cover, so we will continue fundraising until we have funds to cover the van and everything he needs. We are amazed to have made it to $23,871.00 so far!!! Thank you!!!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to each and everyone of you!
Kmoney and family!

Kamarion (ka-mar-e-on) a/k/a Kmoney is a darling 6 year old boy who is in need of a handicap van for transportation in his wheelchair. He was born with a rare genetic muscle disorder X-Linked Myotubular Myopathy (XLMTM); which causes weak skeletal & respiratory muscles.
Kmoney had to have a trach and gtube at 39 days old and at 8 1/2 months old was put on a ventilator due to respiratory insufficency. He was on the vent for 22 months, gained enough strength to breath on his own, and has been off the vent since Oct 15, 2010. We have been told by the Doctors that when he goes through his teenage growth spurt, his mucsles may not be able to keep up with the growth and there is a chance he will end up losing the strength we have worked so hard to build; he could lose the ability to sit up on his own and end up needing the vent again. We pray this does not happen and continue to push on with therapy!
50% of the children born with XLMTM do not live to their 1st birthday, but we made it to 6! Kmoney is in full day kindergarten, weighs in at 52 lbs, is over 46" tall and is quickly getting to big for a car seat and will need to be transported in his wheelchair! He does not stand or walk on his own, but uses a Kidwalk walker, trike, wheelchair, and his Mcqueen car for mobility! He will soon be upgraded to a power chair which will require that we have a handicap van to transport him. They are quite expensive and his family is not able to afford one on their own, so they are reaching out to the community for help. Any donation, no matter the size is greatly appreciated!!!
Please share our story with your friends! If 1500 people gave just $20.00 each a handicap van could become a reality for us!!! We do not know what the future holds, but cherish every moment with our cutest boy ever! For more of our story visit our facebook page
