We all take our legs for granted. How can I say this? Because I watch how much of a challenge ordinary life is when they dont work. Our son Merrill, a 24 year old paraplegic, has overcome many of these daily challenges. The one that he, and we, our having difficulty overcoming, is getting him another wheelchair van.

Our current van, a 1997 Ford Econoline, is on its third lift(manual rear ramp). Mechanically, the van won't make it much longer. We now only use it for neighborhood trips. We have to rely on transport to get Merrill to his various medical appointments. He has missed many appointments due to poor transport service.

We live 35 miles from Merrill's doctors.

We are a lower middle class family. Like most, we live paycheck to paycheck in this difficult economy. We need help to get this van. We're asking for your help. To purchase a good used wheelchair van, we're raising $15,000. Thank you for any help you can give!

7/2/2014 **A month ago Merrill had to go in for a double amputation. He is slowly recovering from this. Once again he has massive amounts of Dr appointments. We really need to get this van so things can be done easier. Please help if you can. We appreciate it very much.
