This is the Wheels for Luke Fund. The funds will be used to purchase a wheelchair accessible van to transport Luke.

Hi, My name is Luke.  I am 15 years old and was born with cerebral palsy, vision impairment and seizure disorder.  I am a miracle in the making.  I started out really small (1 lb. 11 oz.) but have come a long way since then.  I use a wheelchair to get around with help from my parents and family and teachers but I mostly like to be on the floor rolling around and crawling.  Right now we have a large pick up truck that is our family vehicle and it is getting really hard for my mom to get me into it and into my car seat.  We are in need of a wheelchair accessible van that will be easier to transport me and my wheelchair.  Right now, I don't take my wheelchair with me because it is too heavy to lift into the truck so I use a compact wheelchair that does not give me as much support as I need.  It's really tough to buy a van (1) because they are really expensive and (2) we are on a limited budget since my Dad is the only one working so Mom can take care of me and my brother Adam who also has cerebral palsy.  So, thats a little bit about me and my family...  Thank you for reading this and for your consideration in helping us with this.  God bless.   (written with help from mom)
