A Mobile Future for Tom!

When my wife was little her father was involved in a accident while helping his dad and has been paralyzed from the waist down since. It has been a dream of my wife and I to buy him a standing wheel chair. (UPDATE) After visiting with the doctor, Tom was unfortunately informed that since he has been immobile for so many years that he would not be able to withstand the pressure from standing because it would cause fractures in his legs. Although this dream is not meant to be we are looking to donate this blessing to expanding his mobility in an effort to improve his daily quality of life.  My father in law is a proud christian man and his wife is the most caring loving wife anyone could ask for. She has stood by him for over 20 years and they both have done everything they could to raise their 3 kids on a teachers salary. Due to my father in laws severe pain from extensive nerve damage he was never able to work full time and they never had any money to do anything to better my father in laws situation. They devoted all of their time and money to their kids, leaving nothing for themselves. He is the most humble, gentle, loving man you'll ever meet and if you could find it in your heart to donate to this cause we will forever be indebted to you for the selfless kind contribution you made to better your fellow mans life.
