Jared's First Bugatti . . . Kinda

Yea, a Bugatti is my dream car! It's the fastest car in the world. I would love to race cars like I do in my video games. These are dreams but what would really be great is if I were able to go places with my family in my Power Wheelchair. My power chair can't fit in my parents' small car and so I have to get piggy back rides to/from the car. I'm almost 16 years old and growing so the back rides are . . . well, hurting to my teenage image frankly :) If we had a wheelchair accessible van, it would be so much better. It would be like getting that Bugatti that I dream about. 

I miss being able to walk but I love my new power chair because I can get around easier by myself. I have more independence around the house. I'm able to get things for myself for the first time in years. If I want, I can take a ride down the street by myself to collect my thoughts or maybe take a bus to go to the mall with  friends. I feel more like a normal teenager now.


When I was four years old I was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy. Basically, MD is a muscle weakness that progresses in a downward direction. There are hundreds of muscles within the human body (the heart and lungs are two). I was able to walk up until I was 14. I had many falls but I've always kept a positive attitude. I am thankful that I still can talk, write, draw, and play Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi video games! I love to draw and have created my own Angel Alliance characters called BCW (Bravery, Courage and Will) - the will to carry on no matter what! My characters are unstoppable . . . just like me.

I had no idea how much a special van would cost but it's more than I thought and that I have.  I am asking for your support. God is my everything and I have faith that my life will help others even if it is just for inspiration to be positive and courageous no matter what. Any donation will help! Thank you.
