Thread: Assistance to purchase wheelchair

    Assistance to purchase wheelchair

    Does anyone know where I could apply for a grant to get my son a new wheelchair. He has had his current one over 7 years and it has been repaired for the last time. He does not have good insurance, which pays practically nothing for another chair. I do not have the resources to purchase one for him. We would appreciate any help in directing us in this! We live in Rossville, TN. Thanks!

    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.


    Sometimes it is easier to widen doors than it is to open minds.

    It would help if you completed your profile and include the state you are in. Many programs are available only in certain states or locations. It would also help to know his age and diagnosis.

    Try calling a local Elks lodge, they often have them to give away.
