John on his journey to live independently.

Donation protected
Please check out this GoFundMe for my friend John. He’s 31, a comedy super fan and a computer whiz. He’s also living with a degenerative neuromuscular disorder called Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2.

SMA2 is progressive and robs him of his mobility. He uses a wheelchair to get around and depends on 24-hour care from his family. His movement is severely limited and he needs assistance for everyday things that we take for granted. This makes it very hard for him to earn a living.

His dream is to be able to support himself and afford an accessible vehicle, a place of his own and the full-time care needed. He’s working hard to achieve his dream of independence but the cost of accessible vehicles (40-80k), housing, adaptive/medical equipment and care are outrageously expensive.

That’s why I’m asking for your support. Any contribution will go directly to helping John achieve his dream of autonomy. He just wants to be able to live life on his own terms.

Thank you so much for considering a donation and PLEASE share this with your network. Your generosity could not go toward a better cause.

Also, the dude loves working with Photoshop. If you need help with anything in that arena, he’d be more than happy to assist. If you have any potentially suitable opportunities for him, please do not hesitate to reach out! He is a quick learner and very willing to offer his help in way. Thanks so much for taking the time and thanks in advance for your help!
