Braden Allen medical needs

Braden was diagnosed at three years old with Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy.   We have been really blessed to not need a whole lot of equipment in 9 yrs for Braden.  We were approved about 6 years ago for a medical card through children's with disabilities community service program which we have to apply every year and most things were covered.  In August 2016. Braden starting going down hill and he can no longer walk up and down stairs and can't get up off the floor. We had his room moved down stairs in August so that has helped a lot but we still have to purchase a platform wheelchair lift, scooter and before he gets a power wheelchair we need to get a mini van with a wheelchair conversion added.   Unfortunately the insurance companies won't pay for these things even though its medically necessary for Braden.  We are starting this Gofundme account to first just try to take the burden off of the wheelchair lift which is $5000.  The mini van even used not brand new with a conversion kit is still $50,000.  His power chair can be $10-20k.  God has gotten us this far in Braden's medical journey and we have faith he will continue!  A lot of the things approaching us seem so overwhelming but We do believe in his power to heal Braden.  Thank you in advance. Braden's disease will lead to death by late teens early adulthood.
