Tracie's Chair Lift Fund

On May 10th, 2017 my wife and I were out for a ride on my motorcycle.  We had just got done with dinner and decided to ride downtown Delaware before heading home.   We had the green light at the upcoming intersection and I knew there was someone there waiting to turning left in front of me so I hesitated coming up to the interesection.  The individual didn't go so I gave it some gas and proceeded into the intersection and about that time the individual made the decision to turn.   Unfortunately they turn right into me.  My wife was able to jump off the motorcycle but I was not so lucky.  Their bumper went right into my leg and broken my leg in four places including an open fracture.    I also have a head laceration, skull fracture, and fractured rib.   I have had five surgeries to repair my leg which I will be non weight bearing for 3 to 6 months.   Unfortunately our condo is on the top floor which means I have stairs to tackle to get to our unit.   So with the help of my brother we have looked into a chair lift for the stairs.  This will make it easier to get in and out of the condo without having to drag myself up the stairs on my butt.   So whatever help I could get would be appreciated.
