Asking for your help
07 April 2012
As some of you know, several years ago my family became the tragic victims of a careless drunk driver. My sister Shannon was paralyzed. Although she does well with her disability and is successfully raising a great kid on her own, she is in desperate need of a new wheelchair van.
My poor Dad can only patch it up so many times. Shannon doesn’t really explain in the video just how bad the van is. It’s in really poor shape. Most recently, the motor to open and close the door with the ramp started to fail. Unfortunately, they don’t make the motor any longer and can’t fix the one that she has. Once the motor goes, she won’t be able to get in or out. Ever.
There is a national contest going on right now and the winner gets a new ramp van. Can you help her win?
Please watch the link to the 2 minute video and vote. You can vote every 24 hours!
And yes, that IS me as a kid standing next to Shannon a couple of times. I don’t remember giving her permission to use my image… Oh well, it’s for a good cause.
