With this he is in a wheelchair and we use a Hoyer lift to get him in and out of his bed. He also just got a stander which he needs to become use too it. He also uses a walker. Dakota loves to be on the go and loves the outdoors. He’s a typical boy who loves cars, trucks and wrestling. He is also a part of the Band Of Heroes which he enjoys helping in holding their sign and goes in parades etc... In the winter he is A MDA Local Ambassador for CT you can follow him at https://www.facebook.com/DakotaFortiersAdventures/ which last year we raised over $6,000.00 and in the Summer he loves to attend Channel 3 Kids Camp where he enjoys tremendously.
Dakota needs a new van with all the trips and medical care. We were donated last year a van that however is not suitable for his needs and cannot be converted. It is outdated and chasey is dropped and we have tank under van that is covered by a hallow frame. We can’t go over bumps or steep inclines etc…please help Dakota with funding for a newer used van that is acceptable.
