Lorraine Pai’s Wheelchair Lift

In August, Lorraine suffered a stroke and has been in the hospital and a skilled nursing facility for the last 2+ months.

When Lorraine gets discharged from Keiro she will need wheelchair accessibility to navigate her house, and insurance doesn’t cover a needed wheelchair lift.

John has researched many options - the length of her recovery and the layout of their house requires a lift (elevator) to move her wheelchair up and down to get in and out of the house.

Lorraine is a survivor and it’s been almost 2 years since her glioblastoma (brain tumor) surgery!

Please help support the purchase of 2 wheelchair lifts (inside and outside sets of stairs), and labor.

John and Lorraine will access these funds directly, so please know your donations will only benefit them.

Thank you for your love and support of Lorraine. The Pai’s will need more help in the months to come, including help with meals, going to appointments, etc.

On behalf of John, Lorraine, Naima and Mirabai; thank you for helping increase Lorraine’s accessibility and recovery.

*****UPDATE 10/11/18******

Due to the outpouring of support, we are increasing the goal from $10,000 to $15,000 for additional ADA features, including grab bars in the bathrooms, removing shower door in their master bathroom, handrail system for staircases, etc.

John and Lorraine are profoundly touched by all the love and support of their friends and family. Thank you!

Love, Anne Xuan Clark, Elaine Posey, Michelle Kumata, Jim Sanders
