To give Casey the kind of life he deserves. As now he is homebound. We have no way of going to the drs. are even to get a hair cut.

I am writing on behalf of my grandson Casey Beene. He is a 17 yrs old with Duchenes Muscular Dystrophy. At this point, Casey is homebound because of our lack of accessible transportation for him.Casey can't do anything for himself. He can only minimally use his hands if someone puts something in them.He has a brillanat mind and is very outgoing with a wonderful personality. He is a people person.Our current transportation is a 1990 dodge van which has now quit running all together.We has no way as of now to get to the basic doctor's appointments or any other extra places Casey's needs to go.The only reason he is able to go to church is because it is three houses up from us.Because of Casey's low stamina.he is not able to attend regular school. He is home school. So he is literally homebound. The majority of Casey's dr. appointments are in Chattanooga which is an hour away. My husband and i are Caseys grandparents and live on a fixed social security income. We are asking to help fund a used wheelchair accessible minivan that will enable us to get Casey to his dr.appointments as well as give him opportunities to get out and do things within the community. He would like to attend some of his junior and senior activities at school ,footaball games etc.A accessible safe dependable van would make all the difference in the world for Casey. Thank you for your time.
