Mighty Moes Accessiable Van

This year brings many emotions for myself. Moe is turning ten. Something I have been told would never happen. Although, I am beyond thankful my baby has made it this far. It's still very sad that my soon to be ten year old, is unable to do most of everything a typical ten year old can do. Moe is progressing like no other. However, Moe is also getting bigger and stronger. I am Moe's primary set of arms, legs and muscles. Each day it takes a tole on my back lifting him in and out of the car. Lifting his equipment in and out of the car. Poor Moe, is strapped in a carseat that he is very uncomfortable in. Being fully incontinent, not only sucks, but destroys anything with fabric, seat belts, straps and so fourth. Sitting in a car seat that no matter how much mom cleans it, still smells awful. All because that part of his brain is that damaged. In an ideal world, Moe would love to be able to use the bathroom. This is a goal he has worked on. But his brain fights him on anything he does. I have been working with Creative movements here in Wayne, MI. I have looked at buying my van that I lease and converting it in to a wheelchair accessible van, then compared to buying a new van. Ultimately, the price is the same. After weighing options, I felt as though it would be better to buy a new van out right. Making sure there would be no hiccups, like there could be if a conversion was done solely. I am looking to get this van as soon as possible. Moe needs to be comfortable and safe most importantly. Becoming a single parent recently has taken a very huge tole on our household. Although dad still helps financially, there is only so much he can do to help. Trying to ensure his children receive the best education, making sure Moe is getting all the therapy that insurance does not pay for. Making sure little sister is doing all the extras a child should be able to do. I will always make sure Moe is safe and has whatever he needs. But this, I need a little more help with . It has been very hard to even come to terms to ask. Even just sharing, would mean the world to me. Its cruel the things children and adults with disabilities need most, cost so much. No one deserves to deal with their struggles. I greatly appreciate everyone for taking the time to read this, share it and even donate. We love all near & far.  Please feel free to follow Mighty Moe's journey on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/204688739572954/
