Braxton's Handicap Van

$36,895 of $40,000 goal

Raised by 129 people in 3 months
Created November 11, 2018
Braxton is the sweetest 10 year old boy! He is a 5th grade student at Glenwood Elementary School in Plain Local Township. Braxton was born at 33 weeks and due to complications has lasting effects of Cerebral Palsy and uses a wheelchair and walker to get around. Braxton’s parents have looked into a fully accessible van before but they are extremely expensive and there is not much financial help out there. Currently their van is not handicap accessible. They have to lift Braxton up out of the wheelchair and into their van, as well as lift the wheelchair into the van. Braxton’s family has been given a very generous opportunity to purchase a handicap assessable van. This is something his family has needed for some time.

Braxton’s van will be coming from out of state. The current owners of the van, are friends of mine, and sadly they never got to use it. Between the time when they purchased the van and received the van tragically their son passed away. Though the family is suffering a great loss, they are choosing to generously give another family the opportunity to purchase the van they worked so hard to get for their son.

Please help us raise the money to get Braxton’s family this van!

Thankful! Braxton and his family are so thankful to everyone who donated toward Braxton's van. The Martin's are just two weeks away from picking up their new van!!!

Braxton and his family would LOVE to show Cole's family just how thankful they are for helping them get this van they truly needed! Here is how they have decided to do that:

The GoFundMe page will stay active until they go to get the van. The Martin family will be donating all money raised from here out to Make A Wish in Cole's memory. Make A Wish is very important to the Bennett family, they received a trip from them one and a half years ago and are blessed with lasting memories of Cole. Both families see this as an opportunity to pay it forward.

Please consider giving a donation in Cole's memory!

Let them give thank to the LORD for his faithful love and his wonderous works. Psalm 107:8

Thanks be to God, for all of your Shares and Donations. We Truly Appreciate each of you.

I love that both Braxton and Coles stories have touched so many of you.

In just a short time we were able to reach our goal. Cole and his family blessed us with this van. We would like to do something special in honor of Cole. Therefore, any additional donations over the expenses of the van we plan to donate in honor of Cole to the Make a Wish foundation. Cole and his family were Make a wish ambassadors, we know this is dear to their hearts.
