I wasn't going to originally post this publicly, we are in the home stretch, and I didn't want to keep this from anyone who might want to be a part of this big opportunity for Emmalee. We have an opportunity to purchase a 2010 Chrysler Town and Country Mobility Van. The asking price is $17,999 which is still well below the arrive for a pre-owned mobility van with barely 50,000 miles on it. We only have TWO weeks to make the purchase!
Our daughter Emmalee was born with hypotonic cerebral palsy, ventriculomegaly, and has a rare form of epilepsy called Lennox Gastaut syndrome. She is a miracle kid! We prayed and tried for 4 years to have a baby and when God blessed us with Emmalee, we had no idea about the adventure He was going to send us on.
Over the last 6 years, we have been involved in early childhood intervention, extracurricular activities, physical therapies, speech therapies, and occupational therapies; doing all that we could to provide our daughter with every opportunity to be the "Best Emmalee she can be!" She has grown by leaps and bounds, and has come so far in her therapies and we couldn't be any more proud of her.
Travel to therapies has become a bit more cumbersome due to Emmalee growing into her new wheelchair which is much heavier than the previous one, and makes it difficult for Emmalee's Mom, Tina, to lift into our standard Grand Caravan. Tina and Emmalee travel an hour each way to therapies 3-4 times a week and our current van with it's nagging issues and high backend for lifting, don't make that travel easy.
Purchasing this van will help Emmalee and Tina greatly in their day to day travels and make transitions in an out of the van much easier for a momma on the go with a little one with special mobility needs.
We wouldn't be where we are without the generosity of our family, friends, and our truly amazing God. The support and strength that we have felt over the last 6 years has been beyond our wildest hopes and we are so grateful to each and every one of you for just taking a minute to learn about this unique opportunity.
