Help Jonny B get a Wheel chair bathroom

My Name is Jessica Greenway, my 12 year old brother's name is Jonathon. He is the happiest, sweetest kid in the world. Unfortunatly he also has cerebrl palsy. He is a paraplegic and can not speak. He has had multiple surgeries to attempt to save his vision but will eventually lose at least one eye. At lease 10 surgeries on his little legs to help him cope with the pain of muscle spasms. He is legally blind in both eyes. When Jonathan was born my mother (Dawn Hanson) and my step Father (Jeff Brija) were working full time and lived well within thier means. With time the dr's explained that my mother would not be able to work with the severity of Jonathon's Cerebral Palsy. When Jonathon was about four years old thier situation just began to get worse as Jon needed more and more medical treatment and specialized attention from professionals the medical bill were overwhelming to say the least. Not to far after that Jeff's knees went out causing him to be disabled and not able to work and even worse prevented him from helping my mother in any physical way. Income was scarce and for many years. They did everything and anything to keep from having thier home taken away. At this point Jon is 12 years old and in desperate need of a roll in shower. My mother is phsically incapable of lifing him in and out of the bath. They have a half bath that could be turned into a walk in shower, however it will cost an upwards of $20,000.00 to be installed properly and safley. This is not the only reason for my plea for help. The continuing care for Jon has become unfathemable at this point and will cause Jon's home to be taken away. With all the added expenses as well as lack of income they will not be able to keep the only home that Jon has ever known and will be homeless if they are not able raise the money to keep it by December.If I personally had the money I would not make this deeply humbled plea for help. I do understand that everyone has thier problems and many, many people need help, but my mother has given up her entire life to help others and have always taken in people that needed a home or just a meal when we had nothing to give. I am praying that everyone finds it in thier heart to help a loving monther keep a roof over her well deserving son's head. Thank you for your consideration. God Bless.
