Help Keagan get a wheelchair!

I am writing today because I have a great grandson, Keagan, who's having some real tough times.  He was born just over 2 years ago with Merison Congenital Muscular Dystrophy.  There is, unfortunately, currently no cure for this disease but Keagan is full of life and joy and has been handling this obstacle in life like a strong little trooper. 
     
     To improve his quality of life significantly, he is in desperate need of a Koala Mini Flex power wheelchair to enable him to function as close to normal for his disease.  It is imperative that we get our little boy mobile as soon as possible so it does not hinder his development and so he will finally be able to have some independence in movement. 

     While we are thankful that there is a wheelchair out there that will help his quality of life, at a cost of $29,000, we have been unable to raise enough funds as of yet to purchase him one.
     
    We have been applying for grants with no success and unfortunately insurance has denied us 5 times.  We have attempted to get loaners through the Muscular Dystrophy Association but because he is so little they do not have any for him.  We have raised $17,000 so far and are continuing to raise donations locally but have nearly exhausted our current avenues which is why we have come to gofundme for the remaining $12,000 needed. 
     
     I know that you do not know our little Keagan but if you could find it in your heart to help us allow him to be mobile and increase his happiness through his struggle, we will be thankful to you with all of our heart!
