Hey I want to thank you very much for participating the the Fundraiser. My very best friend son who is 10 years old has Muscular Dystrophy Duchene. It is not expected to live much pass his teeanage years. It is such a horrible disease. He is currently 95 percent in his wheel chair. I am trying to start some kind of fundraiser to help pay for a van. Pam (my friend) does not have any means of transportation anymore since her son is now in the Power chair which is much to big for her car. If you have any ideas to raise 40K to pay for a van let me know. Thanx again for your support. PS I was in jail too!!!

An option here,depending on her vehicle would be the small aluminum/fiberglas enclosed trailers made just for this purpose.They are just big enough for a powerchair or scooter vehicle and are very lightweight.Also allow for ez loading/unloading of chair and save the extensive modifications to van to install lift/tiedowns,custom door etc.
Also if the morbidity does not bother you greatly,most papers have classified ads for used handicapped equipped vehicles which are no longer "needed" at quite resonable prices.Not surprisingly,a lot of these show up in retirement communities such as AZ,FL,TX.
Sorry if anyone is offended by this information.
