Wheelchair accessible van

My name is Calvin Thomas and I'm raising money to assist me with acquiring a wheelchair conversion van.  I am a paraplegic of 30 years and for most of my time I have used a 2 door car to maneuver myself around and maintain my independence. My day to day usually consist of me grocery shopping, visiting loved ones or running errands to the pharmacy for medical supplies and other needs. The many years of being a paraplegic has taken a toll on me physically creating a lot of wear and tear on my body especially transferring to and from a car.  The muscles and tissue around shoulder and rotator cuff has deteriorated causing chronic pain and discomfort and also causing my shoulder to pop out of socket frequently.  A wheelchair conversion van will eliminate the day to day transferring to and from a car and also help me move more fluidly when carrying groceries and performing other tasks.  I am aware that there's a price to pay for independence but I'm hoping my health won't be one of them. Any donation you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
