Get Emily Haskell Moving with an Alinker

My amazing  wife has been met with some challenges in life.  Her health problems started from a young age.  She's overcome a great many things, but needs some help.

At this point she's starting to recover again, but her physical health has taken such a hit that just walking around Target or the grocery store will tire her out often having to go wait in the car before checkout. This is incredibly discouraging for someone who used to go for hours-long hikes or spend the day walking around an art museum. We came across the Alinker , a walking bike that helps people with limited mobility still get around. It seems like the perfect thing to help her regain her stamina and enjoy the activities she used to take pleasure in doing. It's great for people with MS for taking some of the stress off your legs and helping with balance.  Unfortunately, due to the amount debts we accrued from all the medical bills, there's no way we could afford to get one on our own. 

We're hoping that with your help we'll be able to collect enough money to provide this opportunity for her. She'll be able to start taking walks around the neighborhood again and won't feel trapped in her home all day. This will also add the possibility of visiting museums, parks, the zoo, and many other spaces that have been difficult for a few years.  She had to stop going to most smaller venues if she didn't know a seat would be available.  More than one concert or day trip has been canceled (or ticket passed on to a friend) when we realized the difficulty - sometimes at the last moment.  Even daily events like trips to the farmer's market or the grocery store will be renewed possibilities.  

 Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. 

We only need $2,000 for the Alinker, but any extra will be used to help pay off the medical bills we’ve accrued.
