Hi, My name is Katherine and I would like to share my story with you and tell you why we would love to win a handicapped accessible van. My son, Austin was born with cerebal palsy, a seizure disorder and is legally blind. He has never been able to walk and going places is a bit of a challenge the older he gets. As of now, his father and I have to carry him to the car, put him in a car seat, break down a wheel chair and then put it together when we go to our weekly therapy sessions, dr’s or anywhere we go. One of the things he likes best is to go places and it would be great just to be able to wheel him straight to a car and strap a wheel chair down and go. His father is recovering from cancer and a total laryngectomy, that has also put a strain on us. Austin will never be able to walk and this would help the process of transporting in more ways then you would ever know. We thank you for taking the time to read our story and we hope we get your vote!
Thank you so much,
Katherine and Austin
