Ethan's wheelchair van/ramp fund

Hello, my name is Breanne Lovell, my son Ethan is 10 years old and was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy at age 5.  This is a progressive muscle disease that affects muscle use of the legs first and eventually the muscles of the heart and lungs. This disease affects many boys this age. Ethan has never been able to run, ride a bike, or play ball like other boys his age. Ethan has a manual wheelchair that he uses at school now and his friends all enjoy pushing him around. We recently have gotten a power wheelchair. Unfortunately, Ethan is getting to the point where he will need to use this all the time.  Ethan likes to do as much for himself as he can and using the power chair will allow him to do so. Our problem is that I need a way to get the wheelchair from place to place. Ethan and I are asking for help to buy a wheelchair accessible van and materials for Ethan's Paw-Paw to build a wheelchair ramp onto our home. I am Ethan's sole supporter as a single mother with the help of my parents. Ethan takes an expensive medication that he takes every day that insurance does not cover. I am a nurse at a local hospital and work as much as I can to make ends meet. If anyone would like to donate money for these two things Ethan desparately needs, myself, my family,and Ethan will be forever grateful. God bless you and your family!
