The friends of Taffie Brown are raising funds to help her get reliable transportation for her special needs son.

I have a friend in Savannah Georgia she is a single mom of a special needs 6 year old. He suffers from epilepsy, autism and is non verbal. She herself is disabled due to severe arthritis in her neck that affects her ability to move. At times her pain is so severe she can barely walk. But she has not once let that stop her from caring for her son or interfere with her efforts to help the special needs community. Whether it be the starting a support group for the families in the area or helping raise funds for the special needs class at the school her son attends. She does everything she can to help others without being asked.  Her only means of transportation recently broke down and I started this fundraiser to help come up with the money to pay her car off which is $3500 still owed & try to help come up with enough for a down payment to get her in another one if you know of any body that is willing to help with my fundraiser. Please pass this along to them. The cost of repairs is $3700 which is more than the car is worth. Shes a great person as I said a single mom of a special needs little boy. She  has tried applying for different grants, programs and loans for special needs but was told he didnt qualify because he isn't disabled enough. He just can't talk and has a seizure every now and then so I guess in their eyes he isn't handicapped enough to deserve their help. She is really worried about how she is going to get him to his weekly appointments for therapy, or even to the grocery store. So please if you can't donate help me get the word out.
