I will be Trapped in my home and outside my home
Many ask why I am looking at being in a wheelchair, hope this will explain it. The spinal injuries, and disease is getting worst, no more surgeries will help, the conditions are cutting off nerves coming out of spinal cord, and soon will cost me the ability to walk, it has already started, both feet has no feelings, the nerves are dead, so i walk, and can not tell if I stubbed my toe, or foot is high enough to step up a step, Many times I stumble on steps cause I did not bring my foot up high enough. Doctor already warned me that if I fall the wrong way that pulls or put pressure on spine, it will break my spinal cord.
2 contractors has already told me it will cost more because of the work involved to make hallways wider, moving of the walls, etc. There is electrical that has to be moved, plumbing to be redone, etc. There is alot involved inside of house, not counting the outside of house.
Recently a wheelchair ramp was built for me under the home modification program, but there are still some issues that needs to be solved and hoping that you can help with that.
From end of ramp to driveway needs a sidewalk put in, amd where I park in driveway needs concrete, please see attached pictures. And perhaps some concrete for a ramp in front going to street, and in main part of house.
I am hoping that perhaps you can donate left over concrete or something that will help solve this problem.
As you can see, when it rains, wheelchair is not getting through mud.
Also the inside of my home needs modification as well so wheelchair can be used without hitting walls, etc.
Any help you can do would be greatly appreciated.
There is so much to be done, so time, materials and funding will be a great help.
Please feel free to contact me,
