    Beijing - Read me - Help TIM

    SEND NO MORE NEW MONEY, WE HIT THE TARGET!!!!

    Tim C expressed the need for a shower/camode chair there in the hospital room in China. I can setup a web page quickly to allow for Paypal donations if someone will accept the raised money and order the chair/ then FedEx it to them in China.

    Update: IP has donated a chair!! Now we need to ship it and it ain't cheap.FexEx is $468.86
    TARGET:$468.86 DONATE BELOW...
    We'll beg and scream till the target is met or the last day of Sept. comes. Either way we owe IP the money. Let's make this work. Pledge and follow through.

    Tim C Shower Chair Fund (China) Donate Here!

    Dr. Young is this okay? I hope I'm not violating ay rules of the forum.

    Anybody willing/able? Let's go let's get this movin'

    Sounds like a good cause.

    Put me down for $50. That will probably pay for shipping costs.

    I've got a paypal account. Are there any medical supply people out there who can arrange for the sale of the equipment?

    Or maybe someone's got a shower chair they'd be willing to donate.

    I have an extra shower chair I can donate. It's used, missing one 'hook' under actual chair pad, but totally usable... Don't know if he'd want to have a used one, but it's available.

    Glad to contribute. Dr. Young said this was an area for 60 SCI patients, if I understood correctly. Is there a storage area in each room if several chairs are available? Can we expect that the chairs would be available for US patients when they come for surgery or will these be available to the general population, first come first served? Does Dr Huang have an area designated for his patients? What else might be beneficial for those traveling around the world for surgery?

    Sounds like we have at least one option here.

    I'd be happy to send a check/paypal/money order/whatever to ip if he (or she) would be willing to ship the shower bench.

    I'm leaving for a couple of hours. Will check back later to see if there are any other options available.

    If it were me waiting to take a shower, I'd be in a bit of a hurry. Can ip or anyone else be ready to ship by tomorrow?

    I just called FEDEX, kind of sticker shock.

    I'm estimating: 50lb, 12in x 40in x 40in

    Fedex Economy, gets there Sep 23rd plus day for local delivery: $468.86

    Fedex Priority, gets there Sep 18th, plus one day local delivery: $950.21

    Still wanna do it?
