Paralyzed Family Member Needs A Wheelchair Van

$13,614 of $58,500 goal

Raised by 125 people in 6 months
Created December 28, 2018
My cousin Dwayne who was paralyzed from the chest down 22 years ago in a boating accident has been in need of a wheelchair accessible van for quite some time. They have never asked for help, but at my urging they have agreed to ask for and accept the help of our great community. Dwayne has done so much over the years to help others with his encouraging and inspirational messages and he has done so happily hoping that others would be encouraged and inspired by his life's example.

In the past it has been difficult to get Dwayne out of the house because he doesn't have the proper transportation, but recently he was approved for an electric wheelchair which would allow him more mobility, but would require him to have a wheelchair lift in the van in order to leave the house, where currently he spends most of his time.

A new wheelchair along with a lift van will allow Dwayne to start rehab again, gain more strength in his body and start being more productive.

We will be appreciative and grateful for any donation that you feel led to give.

Thank you and God bless you,

I just wanted to send an update on the progress that we have made on behalf of Dwayne's fundraiser to purchase a new van with wheelchair accessibility.  We are happy to announce that because of your great contributions to help Dwayne, he has purchased a 2019 Chrysler Pacifica with all of the conversions that he needed to get into the van safely and securely. He used the Gofundme money for the initial down payment but still needs $48,000 to pay it off. I will include some pictures.

Also, Dwayne was eligible to receive a new electric wheelchair through his insurance and December 3, 2018, he was measured and fitted for the electric wheelchair.  They told us it would be a four-month process, but amazingly Dwayne received it in less than 2 months.  I will also include some pictures.

The 2 things he really needed have come through amazingly fast and we are very thankful to God and to everyone who has given from the least to the greatest.

Now he is working on getting a built in ramp in his garage so that he can leave the house and start fulfilling the goals and desires that he wants to fulfill.

Thank you again and God bless you all.

I just wanted to say a special thank you to all of those who have donated and shared the Gofundme for Dwayne. The outpouring of support is more than we thought or imagined and we are very grateful for everyone who has taken the time to encourage us, donate towards the van and shared the link so that others may know about this cause and have the opportunity to help us by giving or by sharing.

We are happy to share that we have found a wheelchair lift minivan that will be perfect for Dwayne. There is plenty of room for him to easily come in and out of it without any difficulty.

We are really encouraged by the support of our great community. Friends, family and even strangers have given and we are very appreciative for their sacrifice and pray God's blessing upon the gift that they've given from the least to the greatest.

May God's blessing be upon each one of you with our sincerest gratitude.

God bless you,
Brandon

I just wanted to send a big thank you to everyone who has donated and shared the campaign for Dwayne to get a wheelchair lift van. The outpouring of support is more than we could have ever imagined and we are so grateful for all of the love, encouragement and blessings that we have seen in the past few days.

I want everyone who has donated to know that we believe in sowing and reaping and so should you. May your gift be multiplied back to you 100 fold and the blessings you have given us be returned to you just the same.

Thank you again for donating, sharing with others and encouraging us in this campaign for our brother and friend, Dwayne.

God bless you,
Brandon
