Wheelchair Vehicle Needed!

Mya catches attention everywhere she goes. It’s not her wheelchair people are staring at, it’s her energy that is captivating. Mya was born with a rare chromosome mutation and is now dependent on her wheelchair. My sister, Jenny, is Mya’s mother.

Getting Mya around requires getting her wheelchair into the back of a small SUV. Then lifting Mya, all 50lbs of her, who also has a feeding tube out of her stomach, and putting her into a very large car seat. Jenny also has a 9 month old, so bringing her son’s stroller on family outings is usually not an option.

After spending the week with my sister recently, I realized that if Jenny needed to go grocery shopping with both kids en tow, she would not be able to fit more than a bag. If I wanted to go somewhere with my sister and our three kids I had to take a separate car, due to the lack of space in her vehicle. There were also multiple occasions where Mya was left out and had to stay home with her step dad because we didn’t have space for all of us in one vehicle. This bothered me because, even though Mya is disabled, she is my niece and she deserves to be part of our adventures and to be able to go out safely.

A wheelchair accessible vehicle is EXACTLY what Jenny needs to be able to transport Mya and the rest of the family, a stroller, diaper bags, groceries, etc., comfortably. Being able to strap Mya’s chair into her own space would free up room in the back and make room for another passenger.

Any help to get them into this type of vehicle will be more than appreciated. Handicap vehicles run from $25,000 - $35,000❤️
