Wheelchair vehicle for the Karl.

This is a renewed effort. I need your help, Please.

Although I can't seem to get any help from the media I am trying again with a lower amount and settling for something used.

I have had JRA since I was 3 1/2. JRA or juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, in other words, my body hates itself. It tends to do irreparable damage to the joints and muscles unless you have had said joints replaced and still they are not perfect.

Even with the juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, I used to work during major rainstorms and snowstorms by either towing people, plowing them a path or transporting people to and from the hospital in my plow truck. 

Seven years ago I suffered a spinal cord infarction that took away the use of my legs.  While fixing lunch for my wife and granddaughter, my back and legs suddenly felt like they were on fire.  I laid down thinking it was just an attack of arthritis, but it was so much more. When I went to bed, I could still move my legs.  But when I woke the next morning, I was paralyzed from the waist down. I went to the hospital and they immediately transferred me to a different hospital for specialized tests as well as MRIs, cat scans and a spinal tap just to find out what was wrong. They told me they suspected a spinal cord infarction which is a blood flow stoppage to the spine. Since that time I have had good recovery only to have several setbacks including a broken leg, 2 "stage 5" decubitus ulcers and a stroke.

Unfortunately, my wife can no longer place me in the car or get me out of the car due to her own health issues.  I am looking for help in the form of contributions to my fund site at:

I'm trying to be able to afford a newer vehicle that I can have set up for my power wheelchair.  I would like to be able to drive the vehicle myself and go any place I desire.

The only rides I can get are from the Medicaid Van and they will only take me to medical appointments. They will not take me to anything personal. With your donation, I may be able to afford to buy my own vehicle and customize it for my wheelchair. Please consider helping by donating to my GoFundMe account:

While you are WALKING up to meet your spouse, I'm sitting in a wheelchair.

While you are out at the beach, I'm sitting at home.

While you are going to outdoor concerts, I'm sitting home.

While you are enjoying outdoor parties, I'm sitting at home.

Any help will be greatly appreciated...
