Dear good people; I am hereby asking for your help to raise the needed money to buy Citroen Berlingo XL with ramp for the disabled.
We are in need of the car to transport my daughter (100% disabled) to therapies from Split to Zagreb (which is 376km away). We are not allowed to travel by bus or train because her therapy dog travels with us, and its highly impractical due to needed medical equipment(respirator, oxygen bottle, cannula tracheale, aspirator, oxygenator, oximeter... plus all spare parts) that has to be carried with us. Unfortunately, therapy dogs are not allowed in trains, buses nor in a large portion of the facilities in Croatia. Undoubtedly, we are forced to buy the car for the needs of my daughter, her wheelchair, necessary appliances and her dog to fit into.
My daughter Valentina is suffering from achondroplasia with respiratory failure (she is breathing with the aid of a respirator) and there are quite a few accompanying “small diagnoses” such as: kyphosis, paresis of the left side of the body where complete muscle atrophy is present; surgically eliminated her first vertebrate, epilepsy ... and even more minor diagnoses such as visual impairment, etc. Regardless of her health, Valentina is very happy and full of life. She loves everything that teens love; hanging out with friends, watching series, playing games, riding (horses are her favorite animals –along with her therapy dog), she loves to be in nature and go on trips.
Please, if you are able, help my daughter to perform all the examinations and therapies necessary for her further treatment.
Thank you and God bless you all!
