A GoFundMe page has been created in support of a wheelchair van for Derby resident John Hunter.
Hunter, who has Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, and his family have been driving a 1997 Dodge Caravan that is in need of more significant repairs.
The page is seeking $15,000, but Sedgwick County Commissioner Jim Howell wrote on the page that they’re hoping to get a new ”used” van for approximately $25,000. New wheelchair vans cost approximately $50-$60K.
The family is also battling the medical costs of their father, Ed, who is under full disability with kidney failure and diabetes.
