Go fund me for Janelle Resendes new wheelchair

I am an artist and a university student with cerebral palsy. I rely on a power wheelchair for mobility in my every day life. The chair that I currently have is 8 years old, no longer working and can’t be fixed. This has left me without a wheelchair, which is something I cannot function without. It has stopped me from painting which has become my job. With the mobility challenges I face, I need my chair to allow me to stand and tilt independently for work (accessing my easel and materials)  position changes, exercise, reach for things, and most of all my safety. Also for my safety, I need to have lights put on my chair so I can be out and about past dark.

My goal is to raise funds and order my new power standing wheelchair ASAP so I can get back to work and life!

The ministry is not willing to cover the $50,248.00 chair that I need to be safe and independent, not even half!

This is why I kindly ask you to donate so I have a chance of getting my new chair which will enable me to function in every day life! 

 Thank you so much!
