Hi, my name is Michelle Radich.  My son, Daniel Mowery was in a bad accident in November which left him paralyzed.  We are desperately reaching out for help so we can purchase a $20,000 refurbished mobility van that will enable me to get Daniel back and forth to recovery and to be able to transport him in general.   Thank you for your consideration.  

Our Story

After a very difficult stay at Broward North Hospital where I was searching for answers to  help my son, Daniel, they released him telling me, " The ability he has is all he will have for the rest of his life.”  They explained to me that his "ability" meant no movement from his shoulders down because of his paralysis. I was blessed to be able to find a spinal cord injury rehabilitation program that gave me hope just before hearing those words and I am thankful to be able to share; the hospital verdict was erroneous

After four weeks in physical therapy, Daniel has the ability to move his arms to control his wheelchair with a T-bar. He can lift his arms, move them in and out from left to right, and he is learning core control to balance himself while sitting.  He is able to  assist me by raising his arms while I am dressing him in bed. Not only is he getting healthier and stronger physically, but he is also smiling again.  Words cannot express what my son's smile means to me.

R ehabilitation is giving Daniel a better life than we could have expected .  Unfortunately,as an outpatient, getting back and forth to physical therapy and anywhere else demands a mobility van.

I had to leave my job to take care of Daniel 24/7. We are currently staying 5 1/2 hours from home in a small living space while Daniel is getting the daily rehab necessary  for continued core strengthening.   A healthy core is crucial to promoting balance and better long-term recovery and health for victims of spinal cord injury. 

A mobility van will exponentially sustain and improve Daniel's quality of life as he acclimates to "life interrupted" after  a spinal cord injury. 

We are so grateful for whatever you can do.  Thank you and God bless you.
