Wheelchair Van Repair

Ricky is 15 years old and has severe Cerebral Palsy. He is a happy, smart boy with a great sense of humor. Over the last year or so his hips have become completely dislocated. This makes it painful for him to ride in any vehicle including a school bus, so he is now home bound and receiving tutoring and therapy at home. However, he has increased doctor visits. The air shocks blew out in our van which makes for a bumpy, painful ride. Also it needs a another part replaced in order to pass inspection. I have had nothing but constant problems with this 1998 minivan we have, and I am a single Mom doing the best I can just to make ends meet. This van is beyond repair, I would love to raise enough money to buy a new/used van and a wheelchair ramp to get Ricky safely to doctor appointments. Please help us, so Ricky won't miss any important doctor appointments...God Bless you <3 We are located near Albany, New York if anyone knows of a wheelchair van that is available...we will gladly take a free van and use the money raised here to register it and get plates :)
