My Wheelchair Accessable Van

My name is Liezl Zanoria, I am 27 yrs old, and I was born with cerebral palsey. I am wheelchair bound, I'm raising this money for myself to acquire a reliable wheelchair accessable van preferably a new or pre-owned. I need  this  because my old one was badly damaged and I  keep on sending to the shop to fix it, and I cannot afford it anymore. The last incident happened when the passenger side suspension fell off. It almost cost  us our lives on that day if that happened in  NJTurnpike. This van would be beneficial for my family because they would  not  have to lift me anymore in the car.   My parents are old.  My dad has a lot of health problems. 
  I  would be forever grateful to all those who decide to help me because it will make my life easier for me and my family.    I don't know if anyone of you has ever been disabled, but sometimes you feel like you're a burden to those around  you.    That's the weight I've carried   and continue to carry in my heart  for the longest time. My family won't say to my face ,  but  I  see.  I see it every time they have to lift me to the bathroom, every time they have to lift  from my bed, and every time  they have to lift me inside the car.  They do it anyway because I'm family and that's what families do for each other without complaint. It makes me feel bad  because I can't do anything to lift their burden. I cannot walk  though I really wish I could. I can't that's just not in my cards.   Sooner or later, all my siblings will be out of the house.  It will just be me and my parents.  My mom has back problems , and my dad every time he lifts me he starts  wheezing.   That's why I know I'm a burden. Even though me and my parents argue sometimes ,    I would give anything to be able to take that burden off their shoulders. Because I love them.  and I want to do something that will make their lives easier not harder.   Seeing my parents struggle on my account is the hardest thing anyone will be able to see.  It's like a knife twisting inside my heart 1 million times over and    breaking   it over   and over again.  I don't know how to make it esaier  for them but I think by getting this van  it would make me worry less .
