Janyia has several medical conditions hydrocephalus arthrogryposis cerebral palsy chronic lung disease are just a few conditions. Due to some of her conditions she has very limited Mobility; very little head control, no trunk control, and no movement in legs. With her growing it is getting harder for me to lift her and move her without her wheelchair. Each trip to the doctor’s it takes time and a lot of effort to undo a wheelchair to fit in the back of my vehicle then having to put her in the wheelchair and doing the same thing when we are on our way home. A vehicle would make a huge difference in our lives. It will help not only Janyia but our family and we would be greatly appreciative
