Please Help me get a wheelchair accessible vehicle when I finish school so that I can be as independent as possible - like my friends, that's what I'm fundraising for because the car I will need is WAY more expensive than it would be if I didn't need one that could be modified to transport me in my power wheelchair.
Hi I'm Mikayla and I'm 16. We are fundraising towards a wheelchair accessible vehicle so that I can get around independently. Most kids my age are saving for their first car. For me to be able to travel within my wheelchair I will need a particular kind of car which can be modified to suit and that will be WAY more expensive :( Right now I'm focussed on my studies as I'm planning to go to university and get an awesome job so I don't need to fundraise in my future! It's going to take more than saving all my pennies to be able to get the car I need and until I get my degree, I will be more limited in the kinds of part time jobs I can realistically get right now because of how Cerebral Palsy affects me. One day I hope I will be able to be totally independent. I have worked hard all through my life to gain and maintain the best physical capabilities I can so that I can be as independent as I can. Having my own wheels that I use to get around will mean a lot and will mean I don't have to rely on taxis and other transport as well as support workers. To get there I'm going to need help and government help to get a vehicle I can travel in within my wheelchair just doesn't exist.
