Rebekah Wheeler is a beautiful 8-year-old girl
with Microcephaly and Cerebral Palsy. She is best known by her
pigtails and contagious smile. Those who
know her, know that Rebekah cannot speak, walk, sit, or perform any tasks on
her own. She is tube-fed and incontinent - 100% dependent on her
parents. But while she is confined to a
wheelchair, Rebekah has a spirit that soars. She attends the local public
school, where she works on mobility, academic goals, and strength building
skills. In the special needs education system Bekah’s disabilities are
considered severe & profound.
The Honda van they currently transport Rebekah
in is rapidly declining and in the shop more often than not. The need for
a new van is urgent, not only due to the condition of their current van; but also
the fact that Rebekah is growing and equipment keeps getting larger and heavier!
Bekah loves going to school, appointments, family outings, and church.
In order to have access to the community, Bekah is physically lifted out of her
wheelchair and into a car seat. The wheelchair then has to be lifted and placed
in the back of the van. A ramp van would be optimum for this family on
I am starting this donation site to help raise
money to assist the Wheelers in purchasing a van that will accommodate
Rebekah’s needs & give this family reliable transportation. Your generosity
is greatly appreciated.
