Family and friends of Bryan Burnett are raising money for a new wheelchair for Bryan's continued independence.

My brother, Bryan Burnett, is working very hard to maintain a house and take care of our Dad (who lives with him). Bryan is on permanent SSI due to a motorcycle accident over 10 years ago that left him permanently paralyzed below his hips. He used to be a high-rise welder and was very active with his friends taking trips to the desert and/or the river. Now, Bryan lives a simple life and is on a fixed income.

He is in desperate need of a new indoor/outdoor, rugged, wheelchair since he lives out in the country where not all routes are well-paved. The wheelchair he has now (and keeps going with parts from an older chair) is a Quickie Rigid Style with heavy-duty wheels and tires and a special cushion. The total cost of a replacement chair with the essential extras is about $3,000 plus. My husband (Mike) and I would LOVE to raise the money for a new reliable wheelchair for Bryan so he can maintain his independence.

Thank you so much for reading his story and thank you in advance for any support and contribution.
