A special van for Jobyna

$11,433 of $25,000 goal

Please help us in converting our van into a wheelchair accessible vehicle for our sweet daughter Jobyna. Jobyna is our beautiful daughter. She is six years old and loves road trips and going new places. When we discovered that Jobyna was born with a mysterious neurological disorder that would rob her of any kind of independence we decided to fight for her quality of life. Jobyna is wheelchair bound for life. She is unable to sit, walk or stand unassisted. We do everything we can to make her life happy and fun. We try to live a full life with her and show her the world. Our motto is "perfect moments" and that is what we live for. We want to celebrate our perfect moments together and forget the hard days. Jobyna requires care 24/7. She is in school, therapy and has sometimes weekly doctor's visits, etc. She is now 53 pounds and it is becoming very challenging and unsafe to take trips with her. It is very hard to lift her. She is limp and doesn't help so it's even harder for us to carry her. It's to the point where I often can't take her places because my back is hurting so much that I have a hard time lifting her. We have a van but the conversion to actually roll her in with her wheelchair is very expensive. But it would be a life saver. It would save us all those lifts, actually almost 450 pounds of lifting altogether with each trip. Please help us in getting our van converted so we can give Jobyna the quality and safety that she deserves and we can continue creating our "perfect moments." Thank you.

I just wanted to say thank you for everyones continious support.
We still are a long way away from our goal but maybe this year will be the year.
A quick update on Jobyna. The last 7 month she continues to suffer from severe bladder and kidney issues. She had 7 UTIs plus severe side effects from the antibiotics and other meds.
We are trying to get to the bottom of those infections. She does have two very serious kidney conditions, so we are thinking that those trigger those infections.
Jobyna is strong and so are we as a family. But the last 7 month has really pushed us to the limits. Its very difficult to see her suffer so much on a daily basis.
We are trying to stay strong. Lil Georgie keeps us grounded and makes us laugh a lot, so for a few moments we can forget about her pain.
Again, thank you for all your support.
Also, visit my updates on Facebook under Perfect Moments.
J and G are sebding kisses!
snuggles make J feel much better :)
