The Vernarsky's need help raising funds for a wheelchair van.Their son is restricted to a wheelchair due to Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy!

The Vernarsky Family needs help raising funds for a wheelchair van.They are active duty NAVY stationed here in California. Their son Dalton is restricted to a wheelchair due to Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy. Due to not being able to afford a wheelchair van, his quality of life is cut short. As parents they want to change that but they need help. Dalton picked up cans and bottles with his older sister after school this past year and he has saved $300 so far to go towards his Wheelchair van, but that is not nearly enough. We are reaching out to ask people to find it in their hearts to help this little guy experience life to the fullest by purchasing a lunch or dinner plate and attending the Summer Luau with Stars & Stripes Entrepreneurs The family is working hard trying to do bake sales and fundraisers but recently Dalton got sicker and needed a surgery on his back because his spine had curved around so much it was affecting his breathing,and on top of that they just found out he has some heart issues so they are currently in the hospital at Rady's here in San Diego. His mom says, "we are not giving up,as Dalton's parents we would like for him to experence everything he can while he can, He would love to go to church but even simple thing he gets held back from doing because we dont have a way to transport him."

The family has found the perfect van, but we need to work fast! Please consider helping Dalton get his van.

The Stars & Stripes Entrepreneurs are holding a Fundraising event for Dalton in San Diego, but we wanted to find a way for people accross the US to help this wonderful little boy! If you are local, please join us at the event!
