We are raising money toward an accessible minivan for our sons Luke and Jacob, who have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Luke and Jacob's condition involves slow deterioration of their muscles, and exercise causes their muscles to deteriorate faster.  Whereas for a person who doesn't have DMD exercise builds muscle, for a person who has DMD exercise causes muscle to be lost.  This means that when we take our boys out we cannot make them walk long distances.  Up to now we've been using a double stroller to transport Luke and Jacob.  But a stroller will not work much longer.

We recently received powered wheelchairs for the boys, which is a good solution for the future.  But, unlike a stroller, it's not practical to transport these chairs in a car or even in a regular minivan.  What we need now is an accessible minivan, a minivan that has been modified so that wheelchairs can be driven in and out of it on a ramp.  These vehicles are significantly more expensive than standard minivans, but we need to get one so Luke and Jacob will have a way to get around when we go out.
