Ok guys I have not done a post in a long while, but this place has such a great community I feel like I can lean on you all for support. More than a month ago my wife and I were driving home from a normal weekend out when all the sudden we heard a metal clank noise and the the van was smoking and leaking oil. She pulled over on the side of the highway and waited for my dad to drop off my moms suv so we could get home with my newly acquired Sega CD model 2 and some games. Eventually we got it towed  home and it's been sitting in the driveway ever since. We believe a rod was thrown, but we aren't sure. This van is essential to my independence because I have a disability called Cerebral Palsy which limits the use of my legs, so I am in an electric wheelchair.

Anyway this van is modified so I can take that chair with us when we go out. As of now my wife pushes me around in a manual wheelchair, which is not ideal for either of us. The gofundme was started by a very close family friend of mine, the goal is $5,000 because we are gonna get the whole entire van looked at (new engine things like that). As of writing this we've raised $1,820 so far, I could really use everyone's helping spreading the word or doing a small $5 donation that would really help us out. Our goal is to have this taken care of by August because my wife and I have been taking a trip up to Columbus Ohio for the past few years for an anime convention. Without the van and my electric chair this trip will be alot harder on us. Thank you all for reading and I appreciate any help given.
