New Wheels for Ella's Wheels

Ella has outgrown her current wheelchair so our insurance company is in the process of purchasing a new one for her. It's bigger and will not fit in our current minivan with the rear entry ramp. Our goal is to raise as much money as possible to help with the modification of a new minivan, which will have a side-entry ramp to accommodate the larger chair. The total cost for the car and the modification will be about $75,000. We are able to help pay for the cost of the new van with the trade-in of our current van but need help with the cost of the remainder of the new van and the modification process. DSCC (Department of Specialized Care for Children) might be able to provide minimal funds to offset some of the modification expenses; although their deadline is 10/20/18.  Any help from you is greatly appreciated (no amount is too small!) as we rally around Ella to keep her moving forward! Please feel free to share this page with others--Thank you!
