Handicapped accessible van

$750 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 16 months
For over 3 years, I've been without a vehicle & been mostly homebound. I've been denied financing for a handicapped van 3 times - because my debt to income ratio is too high due to me helping others in need. So, I'm trying to reduce my debt & save up my down payment again. That way, I have the ability to get to my own Dr appts, get my own meds, run my own errands, & actually leave my home for volunteering. I've been asked to help with an event at Eastern HS, do lighting & other things for community theatre, & tutor youngsters, so I need to have my own reliable transportation.

This was my 3rd attempt with GoFundMe to try to raise enough money to get even on my bills (medical & debt) and have enough for a down payment as well as 1st month's insurance. In 3 years, I have not been able to raise half of what I need. So after 200 days of trying, this is my third strike. I sincerely appreciate everyone who was able to donate in any of my campaigns, you helped me get closer. But on my low, fixed income, it's not possible for me to save it up by myself. Sometimes, God's answer is no. May He bless you all. I am done with social media, but I will be praying for you all.

Social media has been difficult for me over the past month or so, so I uninstalled all of it 2 weeks ago to focus on my health and God. In that time, I have learned that my service dog and constant companion Maya has had 2 abnormal tests. While the vet has ruled out kidney disease, lyme disease, and diabetes so far, there are still some possibilities on the list of causes, including cancer. I picked up meds this week to try to get her levels down and got her flu shot. But with her surgery already this year and annual veterary needs, her Care Credit card is maxed out now. So her medical bills now rival mine, and I have no editing, proofreading, resume, or tutoring work coming in. So I am asking all of you to please put Sunday, September 23rd on your calendar to come see Deacon Earl, Campaigne, Norma Serna, Ryan James, Good Intentions, and Jay B Saffold perform - as well as live art exhibits by Tara Streeter and Geoph Espen- from 1-6 at the Avenue Cafe 2021 E. Michigan Avenue in Lansing. $10 minimum donation at the door. Stay as little or as long as you like, enjoy amazing music in various genres, fantastic art, good food, and wonderful people at this family friendly function. And thank you to all of you who have helped out so far ... I am making progress, if only we could just stay healthy!!

Thanks to Miriam and Eric Bennett's tag team contributions, as well as those who donated to my FB fundraiser last minute, I was able to get deliveries for dinner the 2 nights after my surgery, refill a couple of prescriptions, and pay on 2 bills. Thank you all so much. I even have enough left to get groceries!

I don't know how much the surgery will cost me yet, but I'm praising God that it's been successful in decreasing my pain significantly. While I'm grieving the loss of my vocal icon, I'm grateful for the plethora of support from my Quaker Family after this very difficult summer. May God bless you all. I pray you will join me at the Benefit for Brady's van on Sunday, September 23rd at the Avenue on Michigan Avenue, at the corner of Fairview. Exceptional music, live art exhibits, good food, and wonderful people - please try to come between 1-6. I will post the flyer and schedule next week on the event page!!
