Ross' Wheelchair Van

Hi!  My name is Ross Handley.  I am a 14-year-old boy who lives in Virginia with my family who I love very much.  I was born very prematurely and had a stoke at birth and that was the beginning of my challenges with Cerebral Palsy.  My medical condition means I cannot talk or walk or do most of the things that other kids my age get to enjoy; however, I still love to go to school, and to the movies, and anytime I can go outside is a real blessing because I love the outdoors.  My parents provide me with a loving and caring home and they do everything they can to make sure I am happy and as healthy as I can be.  My mom works very hard and then takes care of me every day and my dad works several jobs to make sure that my sister and I have the things we need.  The thing they cannot afford, and really need help with, is a van that can accommodate my wheel chair.  Right now we have to use a service to get me places and we have had some pretty bad experiences with that.  What I am hoping is to raise enough money to buy a used van so that my parents can take me places and know that I will be safe when traveling in my wheelchair. Thank you very much for reading my story and feel free to email me if you have any questions so my big sister can answer them for you.  Be well and take care....
