Handicap Lifts for Albert Ankrom

As many of you know, in 2012 my dad (Albert Ankrom) was diagnosed with Inclusive Body Myositis. It is a form of Muscular Dystrophy which overtime this disease deteriorates every muscle in the body. There is no cure for this muscular disease. My dad is confined to a wheelchair to get him around. He has been in the same wheelchair for five years and now in his current condition he is in desperate need of a new wheelchair with lifting capabilities and a toilet lift so he can remain living in his own home using his own facilities. He needs this wheelchair lift to assist him getting into bed and the toilet lift for use of the bathroom. Insurance will cover the cost of the new wheelchair however, it will not cover the cost of the wheelchair lift or the toilet lift. My dad is on disability so his he is on a fixed income which isn't very much per month so he cannot afford to buy the lifts. So I am asking for your generosity to help raise money to get my dad this wheelchair lift and toilet lift so he can continue living in his own home and enjoying his time with family and friends .
Sincerely,
Shelly Ankrom
