Norm Needs a New Wheelchair Van

I am a 54 year old quadriplegic. I have been in a wheelchair since I was 16 years old. I have a 20 year old used van which my father purchased for me years ago. The van is getting to a point where I have had to make frequent repairs in the last few years. The van is on it's last leg and unfortunately, we do not have the money needed to buy a new van. I need a basic van but with several important additions to accommodate my wheelchair. I need a raised roof with a cutout at the door so I don't bump my head when I get in. I need a wheelchair lift and tie down straps. It should have heavy duty shocks on it as well since my wheelchair weighs over 400 pounds with me in it. 49011524_1592793473530867_r.jpeg

I am basically house bound if I do not have a van for my caregiver to drive me around in. I really enjoy fishing and it's something we do regularly to get out of the house for a little while. Please help me get a new van.


Thank you!
