The Story

I am a 40 year old husband and father of four (living). I have a genetic disorder called Marfan syndrome, which among other things causes aneurysms. I spent 3 months in the hospital 4 years ago after my last aortic repair. I still have an abdominal aneurysm and am trying to keep it stable until my next surgery, which is likely to leave me paralyzed. Our eldest daughter has the same disorder.
My wife is a teacher, and I am on disability. We make just enough to get by. In 2008, we bought a 2000 Chevy Express 3500, modified, for cash. It was previously a government vehicle, then a cab. We've only had to pay for maintenance, but even that has been difficult. At over 260K miles, and the van or lift unpredictably malfunctioning, we need to get a much newer vehicle that will last us 10 or more years.  A fully modified van that would fit all of us would cost close to $50,000, but for about $30,000, we could purchase a slightly used van and have a lift installed.  Please help!

Hi, everyone!  We've had a lot of stuff going on around here, so promoting the fundraiser has taken a backburner but the need for help getting a new van and lift is even more pressing.  Please donate if you can, share and pray.  We realize it will take time.  We recently learned of another family in our area who have raised $18,000 in 6 months.

We're getting close to $3000.  Anyone want to help push us to that level?
