I am looking for donations to help me afford a wheelchair and some accessories to go with it.

Earlier this year I had a tibia plateau fracture which required inserting titanium plates into my leg. I was in a rehabilitation facility for several months where I underwent physical therapy. At first I used a wheelchair to get a round until I was cleared to start using a walker.

In the rehabilitation facility I didn't have much of a chance to actually use the walker except during physical therapy and when I needed to get out of bed for other things. When I was finally released from the facility and began using the walker more frequently as I got back into the real world new problems started to arise.

My kneecap started to slip out of place frequently, also it recently discovered that the blood is moving into the injured leg faster then it is moving out causing the leg and foot to swell. The blood pooling in the leg and foot causes the swelling gets worse the longer that I am standing on the leg causing discomfort and eventually pain the more time that goes by.

Using a wheelchair is a option that I have when I am going to be spending extended periods of time away from home during the day.

I am now on disability and my finances are tight which is the main reason I am seeking donations to help me purchase the wheelchair and accesories for it.
