Hello Everyone! I am going to be adding some specific needs to my Help Hope Live page. They added a feature for it. Here is the breakdown (and I will add soon officially also!)

1. Lift for fold & go wheelchair to get it into the car: $750
2. Cover for fold & go wheelchair when folded: $149.95
3. Neomano Neofect glove that restores grip using electrical signals: $2,000
4. Chair Lift: $1,000 – $3,000 depending on model/installation
5. 3x $75 copays for upcoming visits (plus since deductible won’t be met, I will need to cover the rest, not sure on exact amount yet)!)
6. Echocardiogram (not sure of amount yet)

I have a HUGE update! I have ordered the Fold & Go electric wheelchair! I will have photos soon. My doctor wrote me the script & letter of medical necessity, which I will post in the photo albums. It’s going to make such a huge difference in my life!

The next thing I am aiming for is this cyborg glove. My hands / grip are weak and dexterity can be an issue. This glove would allow me to grip pens and brushes better and do more with PT for my strength. I am trying for a combo of fundraising and grants. shop.neofect.com

We are working on clearing the studio space, which was filled to the brim when mom moved in after my father died. Once that is complete, we will be hopefully looking into contractors to get bids for the stair lift and we can update here with how much that will be.

Meanwhile, repairs on the house post disaster are coming along. Once those are complete, we can get on that ramp building, too!
