Handicapped Accessible Van

Hello, my name is TJ Weddington.  I am a 31 years old male and was born with Spina Bifida.  My father was a Vietnam Veteran who passes away due to problems from exposure to Agent Orange.   My birth defect was attributed to his exposure.   I am not able to drive.   My mom is almost 70 years old and it is getting harder for her to lift me in and out of our car.  I’ve had several Hospital Visits & surgeries for pressure sores caused by vehicle transfers.  Transportation is a big issue for my health and well being.  We submitted a claim to VA for a Handicap Accessible Van and were turned down.  I have VA benefits and insurance and my family is not sure why the government won't cover accessible transportation for my disability.   My mom and I are reaching out to the public in hopes that one day we will raise enough money to purchase adequate transportation.  
Thank you for taking the time to read about my story.
Sincerely,
One hopeful Agent Orange survivor. 
TJ Weddington
