Campaign for Daniel

Daniel’s life on Wheels.

Campaign for Daniel.

In 2005, Daniel was in a horrible car accident and was in a medically induced coma for a month. That accident left him paralyzed without the use of his legs and limited use of his arms. In the intervening 11 years, Daniel has battled back to a more normal life than the one following the accident. Several years ago, Daniel went through a divorce leaving him without an assistant or a care giver. My name is Glen, I’m Daniel’s dad. I’m retired on Social Security and have taken Daniel into my home to provide him with a stable family environment and be a care giver. Right after moving him in I was still working and managed to purchase an electric scooter so Daniel could get out away from home and explore on his own. He LOVED the freedom.

We were forced to move and now live in an apartment in Las Vegas and Daniel was loving exploring the town. Recently his beloved scooter was stolen from in front of our apartment. We had nowhere else to keep it where he can get to it by himself. Since then I have been able to get a storage shed where it can be kept without the threat of the next thief.   I can’t afford another scooter on my limited income, family is also strapped for funds, and Daniel is heartbroken at being stuck inside the apartment. He loves fresh air and getting to visit with people. So I’m doing this campaign for Daniel to get my son back outside and living life. Please help Daniel. He may be 39 years old, but he’s my son and a precious gift.

I find myself needing to ask for help and that doesn’t come easily to me. We would be so very thankful for anything you could do.

Thank you in advance,

Glen.

    I am hoping to raise the money for Daniel’s Christmas. He doesn’t know about me doing this. It would be such a surprise!

    It’s always sad when your property is stolen, but this really breaks my heart. I do hope you will be able to replace Daniel’s scooter before Christmas so he can resume his adventures.
    *hugs* for both of you,
    Sylvia

    I wish to share a story from a teacher to my daughter who owns a fiber website. My heart has been touched by many. I will leave the amount blank because that is not the important part. The willingness to help by small children will not go unoticed. Here is the message I recieved last night;
    Hi
    First I love what you do with the boxes such a great idea and thank you for hte hard work that goes into doing them
    I am a kindergarten teacher in west tx and my class and I use the boxes to make little counting buddies for the kids each month
    they love creating something special to the them.. with my secret needle felting help …and it inspires them to learn
    But I wanted to ask you how long will your brothers fund raiser be going. I know you are shutting down on the 3rd but I read my class your bothers story, and my class wants to donate the money they will make at the school craft fair. Its actually your fiber that they made the absolutely wonderfully messy ornaments from so its even more fitting. I know that the parents and grandparents will buy them out so it should be about $ which I know isn’t alot but I am so proud of my little people for wanting to share. The sale is on the 2nd so I should be able to deposit to you late that night.
    The only thing I ask is that if possible you post somewhere a pic of the scooter when he gets it so I can show them what they helped to do . Well and a 2nd entry into the give away lol.
    Let me know have a great night
    Thank you for what you do
    Brittany
