Wheelchair accessible truck

Our son, Timothy Quann, is in need of a wheelchair accessible vehicle.  Timothy has Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type III, also known as “Brittle Bone Disorder”.  He has had over 50 fractures and 14 rodding surgeries.  Timothy is ready to get his learner's permit, but needs a wheelchair accessible vehicle in order to drive.

Timothy has worked hard to succeed in everything he does despite the medical setbacks along the way.  Timothy continues to get treatments every six months at the Shriner’s Hospital in Montreal, Canada in order to increase his bone density.  Timothy had three rodding surgeries last year; the most significant of which was a spinal fusion in December in which two rods and 26 screws were put in his spine.  Despite these surgeries, he has managed to keep up with his school work.  Timothy is a sophomore at Courtland High School and the Commonwealth Governors School. 

Timothy is also involved in community service activities through his church, Spotswood Baptist Church, and the Spotsylvania Junior Order of Eagles.  He is currently president of the Spotsylvania Junior Order of Eagles. 

We have always found a way for Timothy to participate in normal kid activities, modifying them as necessary.  He uses a power wheelchair at school and a manual wheelchair at home.  It is now time for him to continue on his journey towards independence which requires a wheelchair accessible vehicle in order for him to attend after school activities, study sessions and eventually to go to college and get a job.

We are asking your assistance in providing a donation in order for us to purchase a wheelchair accessible truck which can accommodate his power wheelchair.  After $27,000 in modifications, the vehicle costs close to $60,000.  Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Greg and Vickie Quann
