    I was in a drunk driving accident that left me a quadriplegic, sadly it was my fault, I was the drunk. I will pay for that the rest of my life. It left me in a powerchair with no use of my hands. My accident was a blessing and a curse. I had a long adjustment period. A few years ago I started speaking to teens and young adults about the dangers of drinking and driving. I talk about the true, raw consequences and what they could very easily face.

    However, It’s getting harder to get to my speaking engagements without a reliable handicapped accessible van. I sometimes travel 3 or 4 hours away, even overnight stays if it’s too far from home. Without such vehicle it’s hard to schedule events ahead of time. I just want to help teens and that dream is become harder and harder.

    I am trying to “give back” by spreading the word and trying to help the youth of today.

    My goal is to purchase a used van that has been converted for a wheelchair user. I don’t drive, but this is something that I don’t have funding for. A good used van can be found around $25,000. If I was able to purchase a wheelchair accessible van it would change many aspects of my life. I would be able to go to more speeches and get the word out to many more young people. I wouldn’t have to worry about getting stuck along the road in my power chair.

    I feel everything would fall into place and make me successful in helping more people teens especially.

    I thank you for taking the time to read this. If you were able to help with any amount of funds, I would forever be grateful and will provide you with any information needed. I have raised $1,360 on Gofundme and am having a benefit chili supper/auction on October 22nd to try to raise funds. That being said, I am sorry to ask this of you because I’m sure you get asked for favors from others all the time. I understand and appreciate your time. This means the world to me.
