A Handicapped Van for Glenn
Organized by: Patricia Mehtala
My boyfriend, Glenn Marvel is battling MSA. (Multiple System Atrophy). MSA is a rare, progressive nerodegenerative disorder that destroys the body’s involuntary autonomic functions. It affects 4.6 people out of every 100,000. There is no cure. With the help of a wheel chair and a Hoya lift, he is still able to have a little freedom and "roll around town". Glenn was once a union carpenter, drummer, and singer. He loves cool cars, rock and roll, and good friends. He's lost everything yet still has a great outlook on life. He loves to laugh and loves his visits from family and friends. Glenn purchased a 2000 Ford Econoline handicapped van, but it needs a lot of work to make it safe and dependable for him to be driven around. He needs the freedom to see and enjoy what we all take for granted. Glenn doesn't want to be considered a "charity case" but I want this for him....to improve his quality life. Please consider a donation. Any donation will help to make life better for him and will be so appreciated. You can learn more about MSA by visiting www.mayo clinic.org We thank you .... from the bottom of our hearts.
