Helping Fund My Dad's New Scooter

You guys all know my dad. He's that guy you always see on campus driving around in that mobility scooter that looks like it's built for a frail old person, not a 6'4" 260 pound man. For the past 15 years he's been living with multiple sclerosis, a disease in which the immune system eats away at the protective covering of nerves. This has rendered a former standout football and basketball player to little/no mobility of his hands and legs at times. As of now he uses a walker around the house and a small mobility scooter around school so he can continue to teach. His birthday is coming up soon (January 29) and my family and I want to make it special for him. If we were able to come up with the money, this new scooter would be much bigger and able to support him better, and it would mean the world to him and us. If you know him, you know he's always happy and positive, but even after all these years of slowly losing mobility, I still think it's hard for him knowing he can't always do the things he used to. It would mean the world to us if we could raise this money for the new scooter, and any little bit helps. Please share to anyone you know to make this goal happen

Thank you ever so much,
