Photographer Needs A New Wheelchair

I have been struggling for the better part of 3 years to get my wheelchair repaired or replaced only to find myself between a rock and a hard place. One of the major issues I am facing with certain companies is they wont fix my chair because I did not purchase it from them.

After making costly repairs myself, I've been attempting to get a new wheelchair through my insurance for 2 years. Due to all the red tape, this process has been made more difficult than it was 7 years ago. Now my chair is starting to come apart and I need help before my mobility becomes difficult.

The wheelchair I'm in need of will cost between $5,000 and $7,000. I have set a goal of $5,000 with the hopes that we are able to raise much more. This will allow me to repair my old wheelchair and donate that to someone in need.

Be sure to check out the videos below for my personal story.

Thank you for all your support,
