Frederick Rahn (aka Freddy) is only 30 years-old, and one of the kindest, most humble and grateful individuals you will ever meet. Freddy was born with a severe case of spina bifida, and has limited use of his arms or legs. He is completely dependent on a wheelchair and needs around-the-clock nursing care. Spina bifida is a lifelong debilitating condition that occurs when the bones in the spine incorrectly form, leaving a gap or opening. As a result of Freddy’s condition, spina bifida has left him with significant health issues and several limitations. Freddy also has a tracheostomy and is dependent on a ventilator.
Freddy is a ray of sunshine and an inspiration to those who meet him. A loyal and avid New York Mets fan, Freddy never lets his disability slow him down. Unfortunately though, he desperately needs a wheelchair accessible van, which will enable him to be transported out of the house. The van will be a lifeline for getting Freddy to school, church, social outings and activities, and much needed medical appointments, therapies and rehabilitation. A spacious and functional van with a ramp and modifications for Freddy, can cost upwards of $60,000! Freddy desperately needs this vehicle, as his health and livelihood depend on it. His loving and supportive family work very hard to support him, but with the cost of rehabilitation, living expenses, home modifications, medical appointments, nursing care and medications, there is little money left to afford a van. Freddy and his family need your financial support to help this deserving young man purchase a van!
