Disabled Dad Can't Use Our Bathroom! Please Help us Make Our Bathroom ADA Compliant

My Story:

I am a married father living with my wife and a baby boy who is 8 months old. I have a rare disease called Osteopetrosis that makes my bones brittle. I teach full-time at a private Christian school and my wife teaches part time at the same school. With the addition to our family, the childcare has taken a substantial chunk out of our budget.

Starting next month, my wife will not be getting a pay check from our school. I get paid in the summer but she doesn't. Plus, I will be restarting a new payment plan on my student loans, which will take a big chunk out of our budget. We desperately need a renovated bathroom that will help make it easier for me to get in and out of the shower. These repairs will help make the house more livable. We need Modest Needs help in assisting with this expense since we have nowhere else to turn.

This funding will help us design our bathroom to be practical and functional for my special needs. Personally, it will make life easier and make me more independent since I would be able to use the bath without help from my wife. Thank you kind people!
