      I wish I did or had the money to send him. I wish some of the money that these fundraising Groups would start a cash part because although research is important so is the lives if us with no or very little money....People ask me what can they get a cancer patient and I say send them cash.

      Carm, do you think the American Cancer Society would have funding for that? They told me to call when I needed something like that, just in case, because they do fund wigs and canes, which is all I can remember.

      If he would be helped by a rollator (a walker with a seat to rest), Medicare pays for one if you have a prescription. Medicare also pays for wheelchairs if you have a doctor's prescription. Best wishes.

      P.S. If those don't pan out, you could check thrift stores and churches that have items to "borrow." Since Medicare buys equipment, I wish everyone would donate items to churches for sharing.

      Don't forget the Red Cross. A friend was given a used one by Red Cross, but he went back to a regular wheel chair because of the problems in transporting the electric chair for shopping, his job, etc.Electric needs a ramp to get on and off a vehicle.

      A Sport Wheelchair is much lighter to use, and it corners better than a regular one. It is definately easier to use inside a building. It's also easier to load into a car or truck
