Help Regina be independent again..

Hello, my name is Regina and I suffer from a rare disease called Friedreich's Ataxia. It is a progressive neuro-muscular disease with no cure nor treatment. It has taken away my ability to walk, and one day I will develop speech and swallowing problems as well as heart complications. I am in need of a new wheelchair. It has to be lightweight because I am so small myself I need to be able to get it in and out of my car myself. These are custom made specifically for me, and I have no health insurance. Even if I did, they would not cover this type of chair. I will be using this for the better part of my days to get around so it should last me years. Any donation will help, even $5. Thank you and much love...I have reached my goal for my chair, however I will be getting a hospital bill, in need of a good knee brace and follow ups with my Dr. and an Orthopediac surgeon. I do not have insurance until January so any continued support is helpful...
