Destinee's Accessible Van

$6,969 of $11,500 goal

Raised by 52 people in 9 months
Destinee is 14 years old. When she was born, her family​ was sent home with a perfectly​ healthy baby. At 3 months old, complications arose & thier world was completely turned upside down. They discovered that Destinee had 2 holes in her heart that had gone undiagnosed. They were also told that their perfect baby girl had pulmonary hypertension. She was rushed to PICU and placed on a ventilator. Sweet Destinee spent a total of 5 months in ICU and was transferred to 3 different hospitals. She contracted e-coli during the first month of her hospital stay, which caused severe brain damage. Destinee now is quadriplegic, is tube fed, has seizure disorder and severe brain damage.

Benji, Destinee's father, is the only one to be able to work and provide income for the family. Her mom, Sherry works in the home to meet Destinee's daily needs. They currently have a van , but it is older and no longer dependable enough to trust to transport Destinee to her doctors appointments, much less any recreational outings that Destinee deserves to experience. Destinee's mother also has medical issues like degenerative disc disease, fibromyalgia & RSD that prevent her from being able to lift her daughter out of her chair into a non-accessable vehicle.

This family is asking for help for the purchase of a much needed rear entry handicapped accessable mini van. Destinee is and will always be wheelchair bound but she deserves the opportunity to move as freely as possible and be a part of her community.

Thank you for your help!

GREAT news! Destinee's family was able to purchase the van they need! With private donations, all they lacked was $3,000. They have taken out a loan for the 3k so they could go ahead with the purchase. Let's help get the last 3k for them so they can have thier van free & clear! God has been so faithful to meet this need. He has moved the hearts of loving, generous people, like you, to help.
Thank you all for your continued love and support!

As many of you know, we had a huge yard sale event for Destinee at Woodside Church of God in Greenville last Saturday. To say it was successful would be an understatement. Because of God's grace & our community's outpouring of love, we were able to raise $4,600 to go towards our goal!!! We're closer to our goal, which means Destinee is a little but closer to having some more freedom in her life! How exciting!!! We want to say thank you to everyone who helped with the event in any way. Your hard work and efforts are appreciated and we hope that God magnifies your generosity before He returns it to you. Keep praying for our efforts & sharing Destinee's story!
Also, thank you too those who have donated towards our go fund me campaign. We are humbled by everyone's big hearts and helping hands.

With much love,

Christian M
