original message:
I know that terrible things happen every day to good people but when I heard about what happed to Ian Hixson I really wanted to help! Ian is six year old suffering from cerebral palsy, and an inoperable brain tumor. His mothers van was recently broken into and his wheelchair was vandalized, his medical bag was stolen and scattered his medicine about. His family is going to have to replace this $5000 wheelchair along with replacing other medical things. I think it would be great for everyone to pull together to help this family.

Please read the linked article (to the left) by Paul Peirce (Tribune Review)

UPDATE: The family would like it to be known that United Seating and Mobility Co. has offered to fix/replace the chair. The Hixson's really appreciate the donations but wanted to update donors that the money will now be going to the much needed medical care for their son Ian and to help other children with cerebral palsy.

Thank you everyone for your generous donations and kind words... everything goes a long way!!
