Medical equipment for Mara

We recently received a random act of kindness check in the mail for $100 from the grandparents of a friend to help with medical bills as we were going over bills and how to save for the ramps and equipment we needed.  This inspired me that there are so many people in the world who love us and our little girl always asking how and if they can help in any way.  So here it is, she has a few specific needs and a short time frame since her little sister is due in July. The first and primary is wheelchair ramps to make our home accessible for Demara. The second is to order the new Upsee harness to do walking training for Demara.  Insurance will not cover these expenses and they can change our quality of life.  Any amount you can give to support Mara will be so appreciated we are saving money as well.  This fundraising is to cover the cost of these specific items. We already spend about $450 a month paying for therapy, medical supplies, and past and new medical bills coming each month.  Thank you all so much for your love and support.  If you have building experiance with ramps and are able to help with the building and design instead that would be equally wonderful!  I based our goal off of some online research and any help would be appreciated!
