Wheelchair accesable van for Edward

I am raising money to help get my son Edward and my family get a wheel chair accesable vehical. He is 4 years old and spent the first 18 months of his life in Cincinnati Children's Hospital. He was born with muscular dystrophy and down syndrome we were told he wouldn't even survive the pregnancy, but here he is 4 years later and he's doing great. He can't walk,crawl or even sit up on his own but he is strong little man. He has survived 3 open heart surgeries to repair a full AV canal defect, surgery to repair a duodenal atrisia. And countless other procedures.  He has a tracheostomy and is vent, oxygen and wheelchair dependant We lost him about 5 times but thank the Lord for some dedicated Nurses and doctors that refused to give up on him and mostly to his loving mother who spent every second of the 18 months by his bedside and all the prayers from friends, family and strangers. We really just need help with the down payment on the vehicle, because they are so expensive and I had recently bought a new car that I plan on trading in but can't get out of the payments so I would be upside down in the new loan.  Thank you so much for taking the time to read just a little of Edwards amazing story of survival. Love to all.
