A skydiving friend of ours was paralyzed in an accident almost ten years ago. His name is Chris Colwell. He is paralyzed from the chest down and has very little arm function. Well, his power wheelchair has just about reached the end of its life. The tilt functions have failed and are no longer repairable. Electric tilt allows a quadriplegic to regulate blood pressure which fluctuates wildly all day long. It also helps prevent pressure sores which heal very slowly.
The main reason I'm writing this post is to help Google find and "index" Chris' donation site with a couple of links. If, however, you've happened upon this while searching for Marco Island Real Estate, feel free to visit Chris' page and donate. You'll be helping out one of the good guys.
Feel free to "friend" him on Facebook. 100% of your donation goes directly into Chris' PayPal account and when it gets to $10,000 he gets a new chair.
UPDATE: SUCCESS! In about a week, Chris received enough donations to purchase his power-wheelchair - about $10,000.
