Handicapped Van for Sam






Hi,
My name is Sam. I am 13 years old and I have quadrapalegic cerebral palsy, which makes it hard to control my body. My grandparents have raised me since I was a baby. I call them "Mom" and "Papa." I am asking for some help to purchase a handicapped accessible van with a lift. My favorite thing is taveling the midwest to see my family and friends. It would be fun to take my wheelchair. Right now my mom takes me everywhere using a stroller because we have no way of transporting the wheelchair. I want to be more independent and help my mom so she doesn't need to do so much lifting. I love baseball, bowling, fishing and painting. I love hanging out with my friends and going to the mall. I am active in school activities, and my wheelchair stays at school most of the time. Any help would be much appreciated to fufill my life and make me more independent. 

Thank you,
Sam
