UPDATE ON NEW VAN!!!

First: Thank you so much to everyone who has given so generously and has helped to share this campaign.

Second: Billy has successfully made the winning bid on a 2018 Toyota Sienna with a wheelchair ramp conversion (see below). Brand new this conversion package is $67,000.00. Billy will be getting this van for more than $10,000.00 below that! Once obtained, he will still require approximately $7,000.00 worth of specifically modified driving controls. But the new goal is now so much more within reach. Thank you to all the friends, family, and strangers who have been such a blessing already!

ORIGINAL POSTING BELOW

My brother Billy is someone who is loved by the whole community. He's a solid member of his church and is respected  by all who meet him.

    Billy is a quadriplegic as a result of a diving accident 27 years ago and is confined to a wheelchair. He doesn't let that stop him though.  He is able to drive using a specially modified van; allowing him the freedom and mobility that the rest of us take for granted. But that van is old and is rusting out from under him.

   It's not only Billy who relies on his vehicle, but our mom too, who is also in a wheelchair and living in a nursing home. Billy's van enables her to attend church and visit home. Billy and mom can't get into conventional vehicles because of their disabilities.

    The price for a converted vehicle is as much as four times the price of a standard one, and none of it is covered by insurance. I hope you will please find it in your heart to help Billy to get a reliable mode of transport.
  
Thank you and God bless.
