Gary(Tucker) Pierre Special needs Van and Mobile



 
 
 
 
 
While praising God for His divine protection and infinite wisdom our family would like to take the opportunity to ask for your assistance. Our beloved Garry “Tucker” Pierre who has suffered from Muscular Dystrophy for the past several decades was recently involved in a near-fatal Van Fire. It is truly a miracle that he survived. His medically equipped van is a total loss. All the equipment and crucial contents including his electronic wheelchair were not salvageable.  “Tucker” is the friend, cousin, son, brother and uncle that every family needs. His laugh is infectious and his spirit indelible. He has lived several decades with a debilitating illness that would have sidelined most years ago. Instead, our vivacious “Tucker” has thrived. He IS the life of the party. I have never seen him without a smile on his face or complain as he continuously loses the basic body functionality that most of us take for granted.  He continues to serve the community and is an active member of his church community. He never misses an opportunity to help others. He ALWAYS puts others first. We have been blessed that he has been able to maintain some mobility and quality of life due to the wheelchair accessible van and the electric wheelchair but the unexpected expense of having to replace these essential items has created a financial challenge so we do need your monetary assistance in replacing these much-needed items. Any help no matter how small would be greatly appreciated.  As we are all pulled in so many directions; we understand that you may not be able to make a monetary donation but if you know someone with any of these items or are able to make a donation please feel free to spread the word and share because we know our “Tucker” would do the same for us or anyone else.  Thank you in advance
