Braunability van

I am starting this Gofundme to raise funds to get my aunt aaunability handicap accessible van.  My aunt was diagnosed with Polio at 11 months of age and never experienced, what most of us take for granted everyday, the freedom of walking on her own two legs.  Throughout her childhood and young adult life my aunt would ambulate with the use of crutches and braces on her legs.  She would also use a wheelchair when possible, however, growing up in the 50's and 60's not too many places were, or even knew what handicap accessible was.  Even though my aunt has been coping with her disability her entire life, she is one of the most positive and cheerful person you will ever meet and anyone who knows her will say the same.  My aunt has a handicap accessible van now, however, the way it's set-up has her having to physically lift herself from her wheelchair to the drivers' seat of her van, without the use of her legs.  This process was much easier when my aunt was younger, but now that she is in her sixties, this tasks takes a lot out of her, especially having to do this multiple times throughout the day.  The Braunability van that we would like to purchase will allow my aunt to wheel her chair directly into the van and into the drivers' position, making her life much easier.  I appreciate all donations toward getting my aunt a Braunability accessible van, thank you.
