Jason's Need for Speed

Jason is our 5 year old beautiful son and he has a myopathy called RYR1. He is in need of a power wheelchair because he has a curvature of the spine and is waiting for spinal surgery. This wheelchair would benefit not only this condition but also his breathing, his energy levels and learning ability. Jason doesn't have the strength to push his manual wheelchair himself. Just like every little boy, he wants to fly around the place.
A power wheelchair would let Jason play with his friends in school at lunch. It would mean he could do ordinary, everyday, family things. 
Jason is starting school in September, it would be ideal if he had the wheelchair by then. From ordering to fitting to training it takes about 4 months, so this funds are needed ASAP. Any donation is once step closer to this dream becoming a reality.  
We cannot thank everyone enough who is helping to raise these funds.
