Electric Wheelchair

I would never ask of a favor from my friends and family, but I need support and help. About 3 years ago I lost my leg above the knee which has been a challenge, but I refuse to give up.  I was given a prostatic leg that I try using as much as possible. However, it is not an easy task. Just a few weeks ago I was hit with another bombshell. I was told I need to start dialysis and the thought scares me more than anything.  Susan suggested that I reach out to my friends and family to help with purchasing an electric wheelchair and lift for my car so I can continue working. I'm taking her advice and asking for help. My health insurance will not cover this type of medical equipment.  I'm a hard worker and have no desire at this time to go on disability. Not giving up gives me a purpose to work every day.  Currently, I am struggling with using a manual wheelchair and going on dialysis will make it that much harder to get around.  I am eager to continue to work and having an electric wheelchair would full-fill that desire to continue.  Any help would be greatly appreciated and would never be unrecognized.
