Handicap Friendly Van
Hello my name is Luz Reina, and I have a 26 years old son who was born with cerebral palsy. My son weights around 150 pounds, and due to his disease he cannot move on his own, yet along stand, and I am sad to tell you that he will be on a wheelchair for the rest of his life. However, he relies on my husband and I to move him to places. I am a 59 years old woman, and taking care of my children is my number one priority. My husband is a 60 years old man, who works as a valet. Most of the times, I have to carry my son and move him to all of the places we go, we go to the doctor, church, work, visit his brothers and sisters, and many other places. The reason why I am creating this petition is because the car we have does not facilitate my daily commutes with my son, as I have to unload him from the wheelchair sit him in the passenger seat, and then I have to put the wheelchair in the trunk of the car. I am getting older and with time my body aches a lot more from loading him and unloading him from the car, I do it with all the love a mother can have for a child, but if we get a better car that is handicap friendly I would deeply appreciate it. The funds I am asking for are for us to get a van that has the handicap ramp, that way my unloading and loading process is facilitated. Thank you so much for your time and donation, I deeply appreciate any help. God bless you all.+ Read More
I would like to thank all those who donated and shared the link. I'm happy to announce that with the money that was collected through this website, we were able to buy a handicapped van. From the bottom of my heart, I'm extremely grateful with all those who made this possible. My husband and I have been having to carry my son on and off our van for over 8 years and it's a relief to know that we will no longer have to put that kind of pressure on our bodies especially with our age. Thank you all so much and blessings to all.
