Life with Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy will not be easy we know. With every day that passes and every inch he grows we get a little more challenged in getting around. Now at age 8 just going to the store is a time where the wheelchair must come out. Long distances incorporate a piggy back ride without it. He’s getting heavier and to continue living our life to the fullest, we must accommodate how we get there. A new wheelchair accessible van would help our family tremendously. Getting out his chair is straining and the ability to roll him right in would make it less a challenge. As time goes the van will prove to be more and more useful as wheelchair reliance increases. It would be a blessing to our lives.
