Getting Me Moving

$4,720 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 50 people in 11 months

My name is Carlos Hernandez. In September 2014 I had a stroke. 3 1/2 years later, I can speak through my memory is spotty. I can stand and walk around - but only short distances. Above is a photo of my wheelchair. Since the stroke has me partially paralyzed, I can only go out when somebody pushes me. I am writing this because I am having to do something I thought I never have to do - ask for help. I am hoping to get a motorized wheelchair. That wheelchair will not only get me out, but it will return to me my freedom!! To go out and look around. To get a drink and the newspaper. Basic freedom! I am hoping you guys can help me. Anything is appreciated! Who knows? I might send you guys a shot of me with the new chair surrounded by balloons! Thanks very much

A friend told me that she didn't see it the first time - so she suggested that I put up another update so more can see. So here it is again (take bow Carmencita). If you've donated, thank you. If not, please do. Tell your friends too.

Last month I put my wheelchair dilemma on GoFundMe. I have raised about $3000. Let's get to the end goal of $5000-$7000.
If you've given already, thank you! If you haven't - what are you waiting for!! (sorry, a little guilt humor ;-).) Please tell everyone you know. Thanks again in advance!
