Smile Try to do a Life changing event for someone, someday

I have written about my brother-in-Law Rick and his heart attack prompted my wife to get a heart catheterization.

This procedure likely added years onto her life. Rick is a hell of a nice guy. He adopts and fosters abused children. One of the boys, Tony, is now in high school. He has some muscle degeneration disease; not sure which but he needed to get pushed around in a wheelchair. Tony could use his arms but did not have the strength to propel himself. I found a wheelchair with these wheels at an Estate sale that I bought cheap.



Twion Wheelchair Power Assist Wheel Retail price: $5,295.00
The way these work is a little push on rims is multiplied by motors/batteries in wheels.

No way Rick could afford this with other handicapped children in his home.

When Rick visited in summer, I gave him the powered wheels chair for Tony. Tony tried it out back in Wisconsin and for the first time he could push himself around the house on the grass. Tears of joy as Tony rounded the last turn to a surprise cake and mini-celebration.

Well done sir! Well done!
I was blessed to have parents that taught me to help others at a young age. I love to do anonymous Christmas for kids that would not normally get Christmas to no fault of their parents who are just doing the best they can to survive. True blessings come from blessings others.
God Bless You Brother and All at the Mall!

Been a blood donor for 14 years. Its easy once u have done a few. You need to be in good health. And u can only do it once every 3 months. They are always looking for new people.
