Wheels For Bill - Friends of the Dowlings want to provide them a transportation RV (pictured at the bottom) that would enable Bill to lay down for travelling and have some of the basics including a restroom, a refrigerator for medications and would enable him to maintain his health while on the road. Read the full story below.
We want to make this happen and need your help.
Houston Fire Department Captain William "Iron Bill" Dowling was crushed and burned while responding to a 5-Alarm fire at the Southwest Inn on May 31, 2013. Bill's life and that of his family's was forever changed that day. Both of Bill's legs were amputated and he suffered several other life threatening injures. But Bill and his wife, Jacki, are SURVIVORS along with their three children. Jacki, a school teacher, left her job to help Bill recover. Bill's determination has brought him a long way in his therapy. But, transportation for him is challenging because Bill cannot sit for long periods of time and has to lay down for much of his day.

If we can go viral and get $5 per person this CAN happen for the Dowlings. We want to do this for Bill & Jacki, their family, their faith, their determination and their quality of life. Bill's life was changed while serving the city of Houston. Bill also served our country in the USMC prior to becoming a Houston Firefighter. LET'S SERVE CAPTAIN "Iron Bill" DOWLING!
