Jaben has a brain condition called Hydrocephalus. He is blind, has limited mental and physical skills, suffers seizures, leg bones that pop out of his hip socket, and at least two surgeries every year.

His mother has to carry Jaben from his wheelchair to car and back whenever they go to the doctors, therapy, and other places each of us take for granted. Even a simplest trip is a struggle. Could you lift a 90-pound boy and a 65-pound wheelchair in and out of your car, at least four times a day each and every day? 

Your kind donation will help give Jaben safe, secure transportation.
