Help disabled man retain mobility independence

Hi!   Bruce (Will) is my friendly next door neighbor and my family has enjoyed getting to know him.  He lives in an adult foster care facility.  Before his life at the care facility, Will worked as a government contractor.  He has been shot multiple times and has endured multiple strokes.  This has left him immobile, and he is only 61 years old.   Three years ago, his health was at the point that Will was placed onto hospice.  3 YEARS AGO.  Will is still hanging on and wants to live his best life.  His electric wheel chair allows him to still retain some independence and mobility that he desperately needs to maintain his quality of life.  Unfortunately his chair is starting to malfunction and needs multiple parts repaired or ultimately replaced.  Due to the hospice designation, Will’s insurance will not pay for anything involved with upkeep or replacement of his wheel chair.  He is feeling very stuck at the moment and we want to help him raise some funds to get his chair replaced soon, or at least repaired.  The fundraising goal is set to the cost of a new chair, but any amount of donation would help and be greatly appreciated.
