This fundraiser is to raise money for an electric "Sit to Stand Hoyer Lift" for my husband Sam Downey. Please help him stand again.

I need to raise money to help my husband get an electric sit to stand hoyer lift. After losing almost 200lbs (on his own) he is in physical & occupational therapy at home. Because he is now under 400lbs, he can utilize a standing lift. His PT & OT say it is NECESSARY if he is ever to stand again & have put Sam's therapy on hold til he gets the sit to stand lift. The manual lift that everyone is willing to provide only goes to 350lbs & the electric one goes up to 400 or 600lbs. NO company is willing to get or bill the insurance for the lift even though ALL the paperwork has been submitted. My husband has been down for over 5 years & relies on bed baths & bedpans and is limited to his hospital bed or wheelchair. His bariatric hoyer lift (not a sit to stand type) is too big to get into the bathroom, bedroom and or even under a regular chair. My husband has & does a lot for others & has dedicated his life to serving the community. HE DESERVES a chance to stand & have independence. If you can help my husband & soul mate get a standing hoyer lift, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for giving my husband an opportunity to have his independence & freedom to live again.

All donations & prayers will help. You're caring & concern means the world to us and soon Sam will be standing & independent again. Thank you so much for your assistance.
