Go fund me for Janelle Marie's mobility

I am an artist and a university student with cerebral palsy. I rely on a power wheelchair for mobility in my every day life. The chair that I currently am using, since my standing wheelchair died, is 15 years old and is becoming unreliable.   On top of being unreliable, It also cannot stand me up which causes me back pain and discomfort. With the mobility challenges I face, I need my chair to be reliable and allow me to stand and tilt independently for work (accessing my easel and materials),  position changes to relieve pain and reduce spasticity, exercise, reach for things, and most of all, my well-being. Without  a powerchair, I have no mobility. A powerchair is a essential tool I rely on a
ll day, everyday.

My goal is to raise funds and order my new power standing wheelchair ASAP so I can get back to work and life. Having to currently
rely on a chair that doesn't work half the time is not good for my mental health. I do not like to leave my house as I am afraid it might die.

This is why I kindly ask you to donate so I have a chance of getting my new chair which will enable me to function in every day life with ease and comfort knowing I have a reliable chair! 

 Thank you so much!
