At a very young age, Mr. Chris totally changed my life. I knew then that I wanted to help people just like him! It has been amazing watching him grow as a person, dealing with the hardships he faces, while still managing to inspire others to never give up. Through his trials and tribulations, he has remained so positive, and has impacted so many lives in countless ways.
He has touched all of our lives, now we all have the opportunity to give back! Mr. Chris was given the opportunity to try out a standing wheelchair for two weeks, which is a blessing, but he truly needs it for a lifetime! Through this page and your donation, we can make this a reality for the Skinner Family. According to Mr. Chris himself, “It’s truly a life changer!” This standing wheelchair provides so many benefits. Some of which include: putting weight on bones to prevent osteoporosis, helping the digestive system, preventing UTIs, increasing blood circulation, helping appetite, and increasing emotional and mental health. It is amazing that a chair can have such an impact on someone, but this chair would truly make a world of difference and make life much easier for Mr. Chris and his entire family!
‘Tis the season to give, and nobody deserves this gift more than Mr. Chris. Let’s make a Christmas miracle happen! Let’s get Chris Skinner standing again! Thank you all for your support.

I moved to South Carolina a little over a year ago to start working for a new wheelchair company here. Chris was one of the first clients that I met in South Carolina. Chris and I have quickly became good friends, and Chris is truly an amazing person and has done so many amazing things in his life. He has a really amazing family as well. The day that Chris got in the standing chair it was a very emotional day for all of us. I lost it in the waiting room when he drove out to see his mother. I was lucky to be there to experience this with everyone involved. I have been doing this a long time and Chris is just such an amazing person. He is grateful for everything everyone does for him. You are donating to an amazing person and changing his life.
