Wheel-chair transportation needed

Our friends and neighbors, the Tanaka Family was homeward bound after visiting their daughter Michelle at college in Indiana. Unfortunately they were involved in an accident and their lives haven't been the same since. Kevin (youngest son) had sustained some injuries, but fully recovered; Cindy (wife) was not hurt badly either. Chet (dad and bread winner) however, has been immobile ever since from the chest down. A vehicle is desperatly needed, but with the cost of remodeling the house (ramps, door widening, new shower etc.) and the ongoing medical expense, there is not enough for a vehicle. We would like to help them out! A local fundraiser brought in some much needed funds, that helped purchasing a shower chair etc. Now we need more help - YOURS!
