Everyone knows how important Donnie is in my life, we just married and I would love to give him this wedding and Christmas gift. This wheelchair will make him happy and his happiness is my happiness too. But I can’t afford $3900 so I had this idea and I say "Why not"!
He had his motorcycle accident almost 6 months ago and now he is paralyzed from the chest down. He has been having a good recovery and he feels ready to go back to work and this wheelchair will give him more job opportunities!
A stand up wheelchair would be helpful for many different things.
– In their activities of daily living, because it gives them new possibilities of reach, therefore a greater independence.
– At the level of health, since it is a powerful tool for rehabilitation and prevention of a number of physical problems associated with being seated, such as pressure ulcers, joint rigidities, osteoporosis, cardiovascular problems, digestive health among many others.
- And the most important I want him to hug me again standing up!
The manual stand up wheelchair start at $3600, which is relatively cheap compared to a standard wheelchair. The one he has for everyday use is $5200 in comparison (yes these things are expensive, lol). It doesn’t make sense to me that insurance pays for a $5000 wheelchair and not a $3900 wheelchair that would benefit him more! And I know it is a gift that I cannot afford on my own but with your help I can use whatever I have to get the best I can get.
Thank you for any help!
Thank you! Everybody can donate from $5. Every penny counts!
I will really appreciate any help and please share!
