stand up wheel chair

Hi, my name is Corwin Berger, my family and friends call me Corey. I’m 25 years old, and I have a 2 year old son named Conner. Like many young men my age, I once enjoyed leading an active and sports filled life. I stay active as much as possible still.
Recently, while riding my dirt bike, I had a terrible accident that left me paralyzed from the abdomen down. Needless to say, my life has changed dramatically. Many simple task I once performed without effort, are now difficult at best. While I’m still able to provide a measure of care for my son, we no longer enjoy the playful interaction we had grown accustom to.
At this point in my life, I’m attending my therapy, and adapting to my new life-style. The wheelchair shown at the beginning of my donation website is an important tool in helping me adapt and move forward in my life. In addition to its functional benefit of allowing me to stand up, it also provides several health benefits: improves blood circulation, supports bone density, assists digestion, and my favorite, reduces the formulation of pressure sores.
At a cost of $15,000, I am unable to afford it on my own. I’m asking family, friends, and the community at large to help me in my endeavor; any amount of support will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your compassion, prayers, and financial support.
