Help my PopPop walk with me and my family fundraiser. Funds to be used to buy walkaides, equipment and expenses to help him walk again.

Our grandson wants to help raise money for my husband and his PopPop to walk again. My husband has neuro lyme disease and spastic paraparisis as some call it. He has tried the walk aides and they help his legs to move but his insurance will not cover them, or some of the other equipment he needs to regain his freedom. He wants to walk again so he can function and work again. My grandson was watching the movie dolphin tale and saw the men on their with their new legs as he calls them. He asked me if we could get them for Pop Pop. We have tried other routes to getting him help and ended up being taken or not getting anywhere. He just wants to be able to walk to work as he calls it. He wants to play ball with our grandsons, go fishing with them and not have to be a burden on society. My grandson is 4 years old and yet smart as many adults we know. He tries his best to take care of my husband and offer him help. I am trying to do that too.Ray was told by a doctor to even stop trying because he would not ever walk again. He almost gave up until both grandsons were born. Now hes ready to fight and we all want to help. Ray was able to walk with canes in 2005 and by 2006 was in a wheelchair. He has been through therapies, and more and when we tried the walkaides on him he was able to lift and put his feet down. He said it was like stepping into a taste of freedom. Now our grandson and all of us around him want to be able to help him do just that. There are many of his expenses that are not covered by insurance and many times the equipment is not either. Our grandson Ethan tells PopPop hes getting him some orange and blue robot legs!
