Zoomer Chair for disabled husband

Most of you know that my sweet husband Bobby has suffered from two hemorrhagic Strokes and 8 ischemic Strokes has right side paralysis. On a daily basis I pick him up around 10 times a day, and load his more than 50 lb wheelchair several times a day. I have two disc in my lower back that are falling apart, also sciatica. It is very hard for me to pick him up and also pick up his wheelchair so many times a day. At this time my doctor and I have chose not to do back surgery because it is only a 50-50 chance it would work. I have recently found this chair called the Zoomer chair. It is lightweight, and I am able to fold it up and put it in the car and take it with us, and Bobby will be able to drive it when we go places rather than me having to push him in the wheelchair everywhere. The cost of the chair is $2,700, but if not covered by insurance. I am doing this GoFundMe hopefully to be able to raise money to purchase the chair. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you and God bless!
