Help enable my dad Todd to get back to a normal life and being able to go places he can't go now

Back on March 2nd 2010 my dads life was changed forever. On that day he was driving down a rural highway when a 16yr old accidentally pulled out into the path of his car. In a split second decision he swerved to miss hitting the other car and ended up in the ditch behind the other car. The force of the impact ended up breaking my dads back and leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. He was flown to the regional trauma center where he went through two surgeries to fuse his lower back and put rods down his back. He has since recovered to the best he will and has movement in his legs but will never be able to walk again. After all the dust settled and finding out the other driver was only carrying the state minimum on insurance my dads insurance ended up taking care of most of his medical expenses. How ever his insurance ended up only providing him a regular wheel chair which limits his mobility. I came across this website in hope to raising money to help obtain a power wheel chair called the Trackchair that would enable my dad to be able to to the things he used to do in the past. Such things as going to the beach, going on hiking trails or just across the yard without getting stuck in soft ground. I would like to thank each and everyone for taking the time to look at and donate to helping my dad Todd.
