Veteran Ride

Female Marine Veteran needs help with ride! I am writing for my wife. I am disabled agent orange child so can not help fix. VA has yet to acknowledge some children. But not about me. My wife is a disabled Marine. The wheel bearing fell apart on our car. It is a rust bucket. Without it she cannot get to her breast cancer appointments. She has been trying to fix herself just cannot get it done. As you know Marines have hard time to ask for help but time to call for back up. She needs funds to tow it and fix or if beyond to replace with something drive able. We live in country not near town. When she can get a ride, you will see her walking between places with her walker or using wheel chair. Her back was broken in 2018 and may never fully recover but she never gives up. For food alone would have to walk 5 miles to there with walker in heat. She is the kind that would give or help all. The car sits here in Troutville up on blocks. Sign on it. You can drive by if want to try. We and neighbors have tried everything. Any funds we get would go to fix or toward replacing with basic driver. Anything not needed or used would be refunded to donors. It is bad times for many but if you could spare anything it would add up. Please get her back in driver seat  and out from under car. A 60 yr old disabled vet she should be working on her treatments. If only she could get there. Many of you locals know her or have seen her. One day had to wheelchair home from ER. I wish I could help but I cant even drive. Please help this old lady vet so she can get better. One guy offered an old jeep to use but never came back. We thank you again from our hearts.
