My son Dakota is 5 1/2 years old and has Spastic Cerebral Palsy which makes his arms and legs stiff. Everyday life is a task for him and it breaks my heart to see him struggle day by day.
My family and I are trying to raise money so that we can purchase a handicap van. Dakota has equipment that we must travel with like his gait trainer or wheelchair. A van would be such a life saver for us and would help Dakota's life more then you could ever know.
For some people taking a Sunday drive is so peaceful and relaxing, for Dakota is can be uncomfortable having a van would give his body the extra room it needs so that he would not be so cramped up and able to enjoy the ride.
We have put jars up in the local stores around our area to try and raise money to get this van.So far we have reached $100.
Also Dakota will be having surgery called a Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy in about 2 months i pray that we have a van by then because we will have to travel over an hour away to the hospital for therapy for about 3 weeks after surgery.
We have also opened a Savings Account you can donate at any BB&T bank to the "Dakota Thomas Van Fund" if you need any more information please pm me.
Thank you to all who read this wish even $1 can REALLY make a difference.
