Many of you know Ethan, as family or friends or even from being the Rotary clubs 2016 Ambassador. And for those who dont know him heres little info about him. Anyone who knows him, knows that hes such a happy kid, always smiling and laughing, and such a joker. Hes a ladies man lol. He brings so much joy and happiness to everyone he meets, he loves Super Mario.
Ethan was born at 31 weeks he only weighed 3lbs he was diagnoised with cerebral palsy he has very little movement in his right side he uses a walker and a wheel chair for getting around, and the wheel chair is a big part of his life.
We are now in the stage of life where he needs a ramp outside to get in and out of the house, this past year Ethan underwent hip surgery it was a big surgery that kept him away from home for 3months, now that we are home needing this ramp is a huge thing, as he is growing and is becoming harder for me to lift him in and out of the the house plus carrying the wheelchair inand out as well, this happens twice daily if not more its alot of weight 60+lb kid plus another 30 wheel chair its getting hard. This would also provide so much more independence for Ethan as his gets older, and would provide safety for him and for myself.
We are in the process of getting funding for this but they'll only cover so much we have to find away to cover the rest. We were quoted $25,000 for the ramp and reconstruction on the foyer to support the ramp, we can get up to 5,000 from another source but still need to make up the rest. If you can find it in your heart to help even just alittle, theres no amount to small, we all appreciate it and because its Ethan i know he would love it and would express it wildly and if he could he would tell the world of the gift he received because of a bunch of kind people who helped. From the bottom of my heart thank you for helping.
