New Power Wheelchair for Jesse

Please help us raise the funds to buy Jesse the correct powered wheelchair! The wheelchair he currently has now is wrong for him, it keeps him in the same seated position without the option to adjust his legs or back. This causes him consistent pain and discomfort. The inability for Jesse to adjust his body in his wheelchair is causing atrophy (degeneration). The Permobil F5 is the wheelchair doctors have prescribed for him, but insurance does not cover the cost. We need to raise $25,000 to buy him the wheelchair he needs.

Jesse was in a serious car accident February of 2017 due to the road rage of a tractor trailer driver. After being ejected from the truck, he was left paralyzed from the shoulders down. Jesse is the most strong spirited, kind, loyal, funny and witty friend. Through this entire life-altering experience he has kept a positive attitude and a smile on his face. Many don't know the physical pain he experiences each day. There is a way we can help him! He needs and deserves our help!

The F5 wheelchair has features that include reclining back, laying back flat, raising legs up and down. The complete chair can be raised and lowered and he can be put into a standing position, which is great for his spine and blood circulation. The F5 has a much smoother ride over bumps, this is important for Jesse because every bump or jerk to his body causes him more discomfort.  The Permobil F5 is crucial for Jesse's well being. Please consider donating to help this wonderful friend in his time of need.

Thank you!!
