Wheelchair for Aiden
Organized by: Lynn Longenberger
Aiden has outgrown the manual wheelchair we have for him. The insurance company refuses to pay for a new one because they just gave us a power wheelchair last year. However, I do not have a vehicle for transporting the power wheelchair and no way, in the foreseeable future, of buying one. We, therefore, have to use a manual wheelchair when I transport him myself. The cost of the wheelchair is due to the fact that it is specialized with many different features that provide Aiden with the proper support he needs. If we continue to use the manual wheelchair we have, which I have no other choice but to do, his physical therapist has warned he could develop scoliosis since it does not offer the body support he needs. Please help us to meet our goal so Aiden can be safely transported. Thank you in advance!
