Due to the children’s mobility needs, ongoing remedial requirements and chronic medical issues, an appropriately modified and reliable vehicle is now a priority for the family.
Recently their one and *only* source of transport broke down and, though fortunately this time it wasn’t a critical trip to The Children’s Hospital in Sydney and they were back on the road relatively quickly, it has become apparent the family needs a new and reliable modified van.
Now living a distance out of town the family rely on it daily, particularly with regards access to school; an increasing number of treks to Sydney for ongoing medical appointments; and addressing the individual demands of each child as they grow.
With two separate surgery trips coming up in March, and other medical appointments anticipated throughout the coming year - and beyond, reliable transport is an urgent and fundamental requirement. Unfortunately borrowing, or hiring, even a wheelchair modified van, in an emergency, is not a viable option.
