Help Dina move forward with a dependable wheelchair accessible van
Hi Team Club ABLE, DRolla: April 27, 2018
Hi guys, bumps in the road are pathways to unique opportunitie I’m in need of some help as I desperately need a wheelchair accessible van. See more
My name is Dina and I am a wheelchair bound female. At age, 2, I was diagnosed with JRA (Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis). Living your life with a disability comes with many day to day challenges but I believe it is also a chance to do "Big Things" in a crazy world.
I am in need of a new van that is $38,000 to be made wheelchair accessible. I was blessed with a loaner wheelchair accessible van, but it is quite old. I need a newer wheelchair accessible van before this one begins to fail as well. This loaner van is a very temporary solution to a bigger problem as well as public tranportation is over 2 miles away.
I need to be able to go where God leads and follow my dreams, but the reality is that without a wheelcahir accessible van this is nearly impossible. Please help me to reach this goal and raise funds for a new van. The cost of a newer van as well as the modifications and alternations to make it wheelchair accessible are far more than I can or my family can realistically afford.
It is overwhelming to think of the amount that I need, but we serve a great God. I need your financial support, prayers and help sharing my story to raise as much of this $40,000 as soon as possible.
This is an urgent request as the loaner van I have has its own mechanical problems being that it is a 2008 Dodge.
Below is a picture of my old 2003 Dodge Caravan with many issues including problems with the brakes, tie downs for the chair along with electrical issues causing its retirement.
My passion is helping others and that is why I am a counselor intern, but this is nearly impossible without your help. Thank you for reading.
