My name is Steve (Tony) Moundzouris and my wife, April Moundzouris, was diagnosed with ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig's disease in America on March 28, 2012.
ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a terminal disease with no known cause and no cure. Average life expectancy is 2-5 years and the disease is constantly progressing. At this time, April is able to walk short distances inside the home. She has a very nice power wheelchair but without the appropriate van it can only be used at
Anytime she leaves the home, she has to be helped in the car and pushed in a manual transfer chair taking away basic independence of even being at a grocery store since she can't push herself.
By donating you will help give my wife independence and allow her to comfortably drive directly into the van and lock into place. We have plans to travel and this will only be possible having the right van with her power wheelchair and with her having ALS, time is of the essence. I would have never dreamed that something as simple as going for a short ride would mean that much to a person until now. The average price for an older model used wheelchair van that is dependable for road trips runs between $15,000. - $20,000. I am self employed and work from home. This in itself has been a great help. It was very difficult realizing that due to these circumstances we are not in a financial position to purchase a used wheelchair van. Please help me give my wife a little independence and the joy of travel while she still can.
Thank you, Steve Moundzouris
