Tim's New Van

$14,613 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 486 people in 35 months
For those of you that don't already know, this is my brother Tim Taylor. My brother is one of the most caring and selfless people I know and he needs our help!

In April of 2003, Tim was on his way to get pizza after a softball game with his girlfriend, Heather, and her sister Stacey. An oncoming car was coming at them and they swerved to miss and went airborne and hit a tree. My brother was left paralyzed after shattering his C5 vertebrae and Heather and Stacey were killed in the accident. My brother lives off very little money a month from the government. However, he doesn't let his disability stop him in any way. He has found a new love for selling things on eBay (and he's real good at it too :) ) so the extra cash from that helps him get by! 

 

However, another roadblock has come in the way. My brother really needs a new handicap van. He has had his van since the accident and it is not driveable now. He actually can see the road from the floor of his van because it is so rusted out!! The harsh winters here have done a number on the van and it is just too expensive for him to repair on his fixed income.  My brother needs a new van to get to places like his doctors appointments and the grocery store. 

 

If the situation was reversed, I know my brother would do everything he could for me to get what I needed, so that is why I have decided to reach out and ask for help for him. He has done everything he possibly can to raise money for this van. He has built a snowplow for his wheelchair to plow our neighbor’s driveways in the winter. He DJ's on the side to try and raise extra cash as well too.

 

My brother is the type of person that would rather work for what he needs rather than someone giving it to him. However, this time he needs our help! 

 

My brother, my family, and I would be so so appreciative of anything you can do to help. Please share this story and help give my brother the opportunity at a new van as he deserves. Thank you so so much!

There are some organizations that MIGHT be able to help with a portion of his cost. You may already have these, but I am attaching a link that has a list with contact information. http://rjmobilityservice.com/resources/rebate-programs/
