    At the risk of coming across like a guy living under a bridge in Austin andholding a will work for food sign

    I am seeking help

    I am in need of a mobility scooter as a means of getting around the house and maybe letting me go outside. It’s been over 3 months since I’ve left the house and I’m going crazy

    physically I feel pretty good but can no longer walk as my left leg isn’t strong enough to allow me to stand, my left hand quit working a month ago and is to the point where I cannot gyp anything so even if I could stand I couldn’t grip the handles of a walker for support. I can use a wheel chair but with one hand have difficulty making it move. My weight has dropped and so has my muscle mass so I’ve lost up
    Embody strength and can’t keep myself upright in a wheelchair so I tend to slide out

    a mobility scooter is my best option as I can strap myself to the seat and have a fighting chance to stay in it

    I’m hoping that Medicare will cover a portion of it but after discussions with some of the mobility scooter dealers around here, it’s get tiring harder to get Medicare to come around , I have a request in for me dr to writ a prescription for one but that’s no guarantee

    I sincerely appreciate all that you have done for me in the past. You helped pull me from the fire with my out of pocket medical expenses but now I’m swallowing my pride and asking for help again

    if you can see fit to do something, I’d sure appreciate it. If not, I understand
    It would be nice to be able to get out of the bedroom , go into the kitchen and raid the refrigerator or make a cup of coffee again

    not trying to gain back the weight I’ve lost but I know my wife has some brownies in there somewhere and that pint of pumpkin ice cream is calling me

    thanks for listening
  2. just trying to get some freedom back
  3. S
    orry if it sounds like a scam but it’s a sincere effort to try and gain a little mobility and not be confined to my bed and this bedroom all the time

    I’ve really got to find a way to move around and a scooter seems like my best option at this point
  4. No, no! I meant the the free Hoverround! I certainly wasn’t questioning your sincerity. Already went to the GoFund me page (if it will let me log in).

  5. Wes, I cannot get into your Go Fund Me page.

    If you’d message me an address I’d be happy to send a check directly.
  6. That link is not you, only GFM home page. What is your address?
  8. Done. Let's GO!!!

    Edit: Our team may be stinking it up on the football field these days, but we can root for something bigger than football, and directly contribute to a big win!

    Wes - Jazzy 600 scooter - relatively small, 6 wheels, and has good speed (2 speeds). $3500

    My wife has Progressive MS and has used hers for about 4 years with zero problems - just recharge every couple of days depending on how much you use it - in the house, outside, go to restaurants, go shopping, etc.

    I will visit you on your GoFundMe.
  12. In - Purple would look good.
