Hi All!

In 2018, thanks to your wonderful donations, we were able to purchase a wheelchair accessible van for Abigail and it's been fantastic!

Unfortunately, the minivan was damaged last week when the remnants of Hurricane Ida came through our area and a tree fell onto our van. As of today, September 8, 2021, the van is in the process of being totaled by our insurance company. The terms of the settlement are still being worked out but it will definitely not be enough to cover the cost of a new wheelchair accessible van for Abigail.

We need your help. This is Abigail's only mode of transportation, to be able to get to her baseball games, Church for Religious Prep and Mass, visiting with family and going out into the community, not to mention her multiple doctors' visits in Philadelphia and multiple therapy visits every week.

Please consider helping us raise the funding for a new van so Abigail can get back to her regular routine and out into the community sooner rather then later.

Thank you!

Jennifer, Jed, Abigail and Corinne
