My Brother Derek Dietz had an accident on a Tri-Met Bus in May of last year. When he was getting on the bus, the driver failed to "kneel" the bus for his wheelchai to board the bus. Derek's wheelchair flipped over on top of him. His chair is severely damaged. While still somewhat usable he has had to have several repairs to his chair. Derek was rendered a Quadraplegic in a skiing accident on Mt Hood January 13, 2001. Derek is a big man 6'6"" tall and regular wheelchairs do not fit him. The chair he is in is the chair we all fought hard to get for him in 2002. I am hoping we can raise enough money to replace or completely overhaul his chair. Thank you so much for considering donating to help my little brother.
