My lifelong friends, Rusty and Amy , have a daughter named Mackenzie, who has Pitt-hopkins syndrome. This syndrome causes severe developmental delays and has impacted Mackenzie's verbal speech and mobility. She is completely dependant on her parents and caretakers for every aspect of her life.
Mackenzie is currently 11yrs old and 80lbs, which is making it difficult for Rusty and Amy to lift her in and out of their van. A handicapped accessible vehicle would make transporting Mackenzie much easier and would allow Mackenzie to have a better quality of life. However, these vehicles are costly.
Rusty and Amy were able to purchase a 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan for a price that they could afford monthly, but now they need to convert this van to be handicapped accessible. This too is very expensive. They will need anywhere from 15k to 20k in order to complete this modification. This is the purpose of starting this gofundme page.
Let's all give this family a little helping hand to reach our goal!
Thank you !
