The amazing family and friends of Dallas White are uniting to raise funds for an accessible van with a lift seat. Please show your support!

Dallas was born February 26, 1997 with a rare chromosome abnormality called Trisomy 8p. There hasn't been much information on this Trisomy, and his prognosis was very grim. However against all odds and with God's grace, this sweet boy has made it to15 years! Through hundreds of doctor visits, several surgeries, and lots of therapies, he's always had the most contagious smile ever. His chromosome disorder has caused him to be physically and mentally disabled. He requires full care and assistance. Dallas prefers to crawl since he's unable to walk, but he also uses a wheelchair to get around.
The problem our family is facing is this: We are currently having to lift him in and out of our '07 Ford Escape. Very dangerous! I am so sorry for this, but it is all we have as a vehicle. Dallas is getting bigger by the day! He is approximately 70 inches tall and weighs around 120 lbs.
To get him in to the car. It takes my sister and I both to lift him up out of his wheelchair.Then bend him through the door. Then adjust him in the seat. Or it takes his older brother, Colton to lift him up and slide him in the car door. I have posted a video of us doing this. So you can see our struggle.
We are in desperate need of a safer way to get him into a vehicle. A better way to transport him to his many doctor and therapy appointments.
We would be so grateful for any financial support to make our goal. The funds raised will go towards the purchase of a van with a lift seat for Dallas. These vans costs around $35,000.
With only one household income we are struggling to make the current bills we have, and are unable to take on a car payment.
Now those of you who know me can testify that I am a bit stubborn and I have a very hard time asking others for help. But I know I am unable do this task on my own. I trust in the Lord, and trust in our precious family and friends to pull together for Dallas! Thank you so very much. With all my heart and sincere appreciation. God bless all of you!

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

P.S. There is also a savings account in my name Angie Torix for " Dallas White Fund" at Wells Fargo Bank. Just another option to make donations if you do not feel comfortable paying online :) Love you all! Thank you!
