THE STORY:

Aidan is my 13 year old son who has a developmental disability. Using a wheelchair has given him incredible independence, motivated him to explore his surroundings, and increased his cognitive abilities.

Quite simply, his wheelchair has changed our lives.

We live in a raised ranch, one flight up. We've had a lift, or outdoor elevator, to get Aidan in and out of the house. It's broken, which leaves us carrying all 64 lanky pounds of him up and down our slippery New England stairs. This is frightening for me and unsafe for all of us.

It's time to replace the lift to the tune of $5,000. Unfortunately, this is not covered by insurance and is a necessity.

Listen, this is awkward and humbling for me to ask for help, but one thing I've learned along the way is that people are generous and this story will somehow end up being about more than just a lift.

Would you kindly consider making a donation for Aidan's safety and sharing this appeal with others?

I remain humbled, grateful and amazed at the power of community.
Thank-you.
Heather
