Help Tracy get a handicapped motorized scooter

For those who don’t know, I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. It is a connective tissue disorder.  With EDS our collagen is damaged which causes so many issues that I can’t number. Collagen makes up 80% of our bodies. Aside from the 38 diagnosis’ I have, it causes extreme fatigue and takes our motivation. 

With the numerous surgeries and joints that just don’t want to 
stay in place, I can not walk very far without pain, so I use a walker or wheelchair. The problem with my wheelchair is I have had 4 shoulder surgeries so it becomes painful for my shoulders and neck (cervical fusion). Not to mention that it’s very difficult to find a motorized cart at the market that isn’t being used or isn’t dead. 

With having my own scooter I never have to worry about my shoulders giving up or there being one there when I need one. I have seen some lesser expensive ones, but I need something that would fit in my car, that I can lift. This one folds up completely. 

It’s a tough life and I HATE asking for help, but it becomes a very emotional experience when I can’t find a scooter and have to leave the market. 

Thank you all in advance for any help.
