My name is Patrick Townsend. I live in Juneau, Alaska. Over the past several years I have had to undergo two VERY painful hip surgeries. On top of that, they didn't heal right due to my Diabetes, Not only that, but because of my Diabetes, I have SEVERE Neuropathy (Diabetic Nerve Pain) in both of my legs. It makes it EXTREMELY painful just to stand and support my own body weight, let alone having to do any kind of walking. I am in DESPERATE need of a Power Stair Climbing Wheelchair. My Insurance will NOT cover it because "I'm NOT Old Enough", even though it is something I need SO BADLY. The ONLY company I have been able to find online that makes anything like what I need, is located over-seas. So just the shipping alone, to get it to me in Juneau, Alaska, is probably going to cost as much as the darn contraption itself will cost!
All I need is just a little help from some kind Souls. If you could contribute anything at all, even if it's just a small amount, it doesn't matter to me, it all adds up, I would be Eternally Grateful to you!! How does that old saying go? Something like " Even the longest journey just starts with one step"?
Thank You VERY Much For YOUR Time!!!
