I need a new wheelchair, medicare refused to get me one.

I need a new wheelchair, medicare refused to get me one. I am 3'4" tall weigh 50 pounds so I need a specific chair, ( I currently have a quickie 2) and need a similar chair, doesn't matter what brand, as long as its light weight and I can push comfortably in it

Some of you know the dealings with Medicare and how fun it is!! Well My manual wheelchair is 15 years old and they refuse to get me a new one long story... In a nutshell when I got my power chair (2 years ago) they told I could get both. At 1st, I contacted medicare to get list of vendors that take medicare, but every one I called said they don't take medicare... figure that one out lol and now Medicare is now saying 'no' to a manual chair, I can't get one at all and I was denied medicaid and my biz is doing not very good lately.


A friend of mine is throwing a fundraiser for me to get a chair tonight, at an open mic comedy show (she's also doing a comedy bit) I know most of you aren't in Miami, but I do have pay pal if anyone wants to help out (oichick_621@yahoo). My local OI chapter offered to help, but I haven't heard back after sending 3 or 4 emails and that is no longer an option. If they do help, then all the raised money will go to them towards my chair. The local club owner had a fundraiser for my fiance a few months ago (he had the same problem I did with medicare) and he was able to get a chair through that (a nice Ti Lite too, lucky bastard lol), it was a big shin-ding with many of the local bands etc., but mine is very small and just a comedy thingy on a Thursday night, so I know it wont be a huge turnout, so any little bit will help, thank you!!


P.S. If ya don't wanna just send money, then any biz will help my site is ~ funny tshirts and more with disability humor
