Help Buy a "New" Used Handicap Van

Its never been easy for me to ask for help… being diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy at the young age of three, we never truly knew what my future would hold. We have always had hope and Faith that things will be ok. I created this go fund me because I feel I have reached the end with trying to hold on to my current handicap van due to the many issues it has been causing us lately. It has helped me for over ten years now, but I cannot afford the constant breaking of parts that are necessary for me to be able to ride the van. I am asking for help because a “new” used handicap vehicle is costly and anything you can do to help would mean the world to me. I am 24 years old and aspire to be fully independent one day. I understand I will always need some help but to be as independent as possible is a true wish of mine. I’m asking anyone to share this and help only if they can, however they can… donations would help me purchase a “new” used handicap vehicle which can accommodate my electric wheelchair.  I would also like to be able to purchase a vehicle that I could potentially drive myself, so that I could gain even more independence.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart and appreciate you taking the time to read this, if you can make a donation, thank you.  If you can share this post, thank you.  Thank you for your help.
