Let's help Caitlyn get an accessible van

On December 20th, 2007 our 6-year-old daughter, Caitlyn, was in a car accident that left her paralyzed from the chest down.  Now 12-years-old, she is wheelchair bound and cannot easily be transported without an accessible vehicle.  We currently have a 1997 conversion van, but it is quickly becoming unreliable.  It has many mechanical problems and we recently realized that the roof is leaking and mold is growing in several places.  We need something more reliable due to the fact that she has doctor appointments out of state several times a year for her spinal injury and scoliosis.  We tried to purchase one on our own but we couldn't afford it with our income.  ALL money raised will go directly to purchase a van and any help would be be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!
