I need a new wheelchair

it is that time. i have had my wheelchair for 4 years now and i have grown in my abilities. and the chair i currently use is holding me back. insurance now is working on making wheelchair users wait up to 10 years post injury to get a new chair. Also most makes and models of chairs are not even covered by insurance. The money would have to come right out of my pocket for a new chair. Unfortunately i can not afford the expense. I've taken a picture of the invoice so you can see how crazy expensive suppliers have had to jack up prices on the parts needed to build the chair. The company i will be having build my chair is  http://boxwheelchairs.com/ . Please go and check out their website, and all the amazing custom chairs they have made. here is a link to the THE QUOTE PICTURE. Being in a chair built by Mike Box is what i believe will take my mobility to the next level. I mentioned that my abilities have grown and the chair is now holding me back. Now that i am stronger and have much better balance, the center of gravity of my chair is not where it needs to be. The heighth of the chair is not what i need, as well as the the chair i have is  very stiff and has no suspention. it causes my back to ache if i am up and around all day. My chair is stiff, going up and down curbs is not what my chair was made for. This type of rolling has become a necessity to access a lot of places. the chair is part of me. it is an extention of my body. it is growing more and more uncomfortable every month. Please help me reach my goal so i can get a new chair, and make my life much better and and more enjoyable.
