Handicap Vehicle

Hi Everyone,
For those of you who know me, I am very stubborn and never like to ask for help. These last few years have been very difficult in terms of health. Transplant failed, I’m back on dialysis, working full time trying to help College Students achieve their goals. Not many of you know I had an infection that kept spreading, and after multiple amputations, I lost my right leg. I have been going through physical therapy and learning how to walk. The problem that came up is that I need to get a vehicle that I could roll into and transfer into the driver's seat. I need to be able to get to work safely and in a timely manner. I have been taking Metropolitian Public Transit (MTS) to get to work, go to dialysis, go to medical appointments, and go home. It takes about 3 hours each trip but I am thankful for MTS to assist while I have not been able to get around by myself. So I need a big enough vehicle to fit me and my wheelchair. I have found a few different options, but I never knew how expensive they are to convert a car to be handicap accessible. As of now, it is about $120 000 for a regular van to be converted with a proper ramp and a transfer seat that will allow me to drive. This is just the base model. I am hoping you can help me raise some funds to help pay for this vehicle and the Insurance. My goal is to raise $150 000. I need to sell my 2016 Nissan Altima, and 2004 Toyota Tundra which will help and go towards the cost of the new handicap vehicle if anyone is interested in the Altima or Tundra please let me know.
