Help raise money for my wheelchair.

My name is Lee. I was born in 1984 with a progressive neurological disorder called Friedrieich's Ataxia (FA). I got my first power wheelechair when I was 20 years old and my ability to walk started to disapate. Because my disease is progressive, at age 30, my wheelechair was no longer meeting my needs. Now that I am fully reliant on my wheelechair, my only option was to get a new one with an improved seat, deeper back, and narrower frame. The problem is I only carry Medicare, since Medicaid dropped my coverage because I got married last year (to the most amazing woman), and MDA no longer helps with the purchase of a wheelechair. Thankfully all but 20% of the cost was covered. However, if you don't know, power wheelechairs are extremely expensive, and leaves me with approximately $3000 to cover. Our family (my wife, Jenn; my dog Emmy and I) has unfortuately only one income, and leaves very little wiggle room for anything outside of our normal budget. I would appreciate any help that anyone would like to extend to our family. Thank you so much in advance for any sort of consideration.
