The family and friends of the O'Neill's are uniting to raise money to help with their need for a new, larger, accessible van.

Casey and Colin O have Spinal Muscular Atrophy also known as SMA. The O'Neill family has been living with SMA since 1997 and have had several vehicles since the diagnosis of their oldest son. They currently have a vehicle but the vehicle is too small for their current needs. Both boys have grown so much they are both getting new chairs and they won't fit into their current van, thus the need for a larger accessible van so that they can continue to venture out in the community and experience life as fully as possible. They thrive on being social and learning. Both boys truly enjoy visiting family and friends, going to the movies, shopping at the mall, and attending community events. They may become home bound, or only get to go out one at a time. Both Casey and Colin enjoy family outings and would lose a significant part of their quality of life they were to become homebound.

Please help this family be able to continue going out as a family by donating today!
