My name is Tyrone Starkie, and I have Muscular Dystrophy. Despite being born with this disease i have lived a very independant life. I finished high school in a traditional setting, obtained my Associates degree in Human Service's, Bachelor's in Psychology, and Master's in Psychology. I've been working part-time at a Community College since 2010. My wife and I have been married for three years now. My wife has to use manual fold ramps to transport me to our destinations. Our current ramps have assisted in our independence. The cons of the manual ramp are she is exposed to rain often, snow, cold winds, storms, can bee abd wasp. we owned a used 2003 dodge caravan that recently broke down on us after four years of use. By the grace of god we found assistance to obtain another used van. We are happy to find another vehicle but it isnt converted, used converted vans cost double the price. We are in desperate need of a powered ramp, my wife is pregnant and wont be able to bend to do the ramps soon. Any donation is appreciated toward the goal of purchasing this ramp.
