handicap home modifications;medical bill

Bryan is a 12yr old sweet loving boy from Flemington, NJ who has cerebral palsy and autism. Our wish is to have our home be handicapped friendly for our little guy. Our home is need for lots of handicapped accessibility, and accommodations. Bryan is unable to use his wheelchair in the house due to small doorways and his walker crashes into all the doorways. To have a roll in shower on the first floor would help so much.Bryan also falls and crawls in the yard when he trys to go play with his sisters or his service dog since our yard is uneven.It would be a dream to have a ramp for him to access the backyard and even out the backyard for him. Our front porch is in need of repair and made with a ramp. Currently the bricks on it are falling off. Bryan recently underwent 2 major surgeries at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and we dont want to think about what our medical bills are going to be since I (Marissa) lost my job as of June 30,2013. Bryan is now home after spending the summer living at The Childrens Seashore House of CHOP in Philadelphia where he received therapies 7 days a week. Bryan is still unable to stand or walk and needs constant supervision and assistance. He continues receives physical therapy 5x a week- 2 of which are at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the others at his school (The Midland School ). We drive Bryan to Philadelphia 2x a week so that he can receive the best therapy possible but also to make it less stressful and less disruptive of his routine. Being the Bryan also has autism, he is very routine oriented and does not like change.
We have never been the type to ever ask for financial help but the time has come where we have been searching for ways to help our family and a friend suggested this site. We are so very grateful for any help. Thank you, thank you, thank you soooo much.
