Handicap Van Purchase

My name is WIlliam Wages and my wife's name is Kim.  As many of you know, Kim has a form of muscular dystrophy, called  Polymiositis.  Through the years it has continued to progress to the point that she is not able to walk on her own and is in need of a wheelchair.  Due to the weakness that this condition has cause, she has become susceptible to falls.  At the end of January 2018 she fell while transferring and sustained a broken leg.  In her condition it is very difficult to do physical therapy and is unable to transfer to our current vehicle.  Since this is the case we have been looking for a handicap van and have found one that suits our needs.  We have been able to get financing for this vehicle but with our current vehicle being financed as well we will not be able to afford both payments.  We are in the process of selling our current vehicle but as of yet we are not able to get enough to get a payoff and a down payment for the van.  It is our hope that enough money is raised to be able to sell our current vehicle and then make a decent down payment on the handicap van as to lower the payment and to assist in getting Kim where she can go to doctors appointments and also to make it easier to travel to places as she can just drive into the van without having to transfer from her chair.  We appreciate any donation that can be made. Thank you from t he bottom of our heart for your consideration in this matter.
