Need Help With Van to Get Disabled Son to Doctor

My Story:

I am a mother of a 13 year old, severely disabled son who requires 24 hour care. My boy had a stroke during birth, due to lack of oxygen. This stroke led to uncontrollable seizures, that were potentially fatal and all this led to having the left side of his brain removed. I am disabled myself, but I have to be available 24 hours a day for my son. Right now we live with my boyfriend who cares physically and emotionally for us and works to support us, despite his chronic Gout that causes pain.

We have had some recent and unexpected out of pocket medical expenses, for my boyfriend and myself. Also, due to my son having Cerebral Palsy from the stroke, he wore out his hip socket during the time he was able to walk. That was his 9th out of ten surgeries, in the last 8 years. We had to get a conversion wheelchair mobility van, to get him around. All this put us in a financial bind and now we are about to lose our van. We need Modest needs assistance so we can get to keep our van and take my son to doctors appointments.

This funding would help us get out of the financial hole and we could do fun things again as a family, like we used to. I am swallowing my pride and asking for some much needed help. Thank you for your time and consideration to help!
