It's been 5 years since Chris's accident and your donations today mean even more to help cover the cost of medical needs not covered by his benefits.
He continues to work to maintain strength by playing wheelchair rugby twice a week. He's grateful for the opportunity, but it's a huge physical and mental effort to get to San Mateo from Oakland. In addition, his medical and rugby equipment repairs are not covered. Thank you for anything you can do to help Chris!

Hey Everyone, Thanks to the support of friends and family this last year I was able to purchase a brand new wheelchair with the best support and comfort possible. This new chair and Wheels have made getting around town a lot more fun and not to mention making life a little easier.
The last few years have been a time of rebuilding and learning how to become as independent as possible. The more independent I become, the more I come to depend on the equipment that keeps me going. As I'm sure you know this equipment is not cheap so your help is greatly appreciated.
Over the next year tires and breaks will need to be replaced as well as a shower chair that is starting to break down. Thanks to this fund raising I will be able to replace the old shower chair and keep my wheels going strong.
Thanks, Chris Jones
