  • WWW.YOUCARING.COM/MEDICAL-FUNDRAISER/HELP-JOE-GET-NEW-WHEELS/152630 FOR MORE INFORMATION email me at lucasmonety@yahoo.com Joe, a good ol' southern boy from Vine Grove, Kentucky, Joe was involved in a terrible car accident Jan 1st 1986 at the age of 19 that left him a quadriplegic. Joe spent the first 15 years at home with his mother taking care of him 24 hrs a day. Eventually his mother could no longer take care of Joe and he was forced to go into a local nursing home at the age of 33 years old. That was the next turning point for Joe for the next 15 years, in a blink of an eye Joe's friends had all become elderly men and woman that were also living at the center. Joe continued to watch his new friends die often due to age. Joe and Debi met in 9th grade and Joe was head over heals for her. In 2010 Debi found Joe and they reconnected. The two began communicating and catching up and soon realized that they loved each other's company very much. Debi flew out to Kentucky in April 2011, and they spent time together. The two knew that the friendship should continue near her if Joe was willing. Debi returned to Kentucky in October 2012, and drove 4,600 miles round trip to go and get Joe and bring him back to California. Unfortunately, Debi's home was not equipped for Joe's extensive needs, so he currently resides in a care facility, until the necessary modifications can be made on the home. The visits out of the facility are very difficult. This is a costly endeavor, but one that David Lucas and Debi are working on so that Joe would be able to come and visit her. Joe has use of his right arm, but not his hand or other limbs, so Joe is confined to a rehabilitation chair. Joe has spent the last 14 years in the same chair, until recently. Unfortunately, his chair became useless due to being outdated and worn. Joe and Debi have finally been able to get Joe a new chair with the help of his best friend David Lucas and other friends and family who have donated to help. Joe is unable to use both of his arms to move himself in a regular wheelchair, so the specialized chair is the only thing that can help Joe get around successfully. The absence of Joe's chair created the absence of his freedom. Joe is a fun loving artist, photographer, and nature lover who has adapted to his disability by using his mouth and arm to complete these things. He rises early and likes to get up and around and see new things. Please help us raise money to get Joe his freedom back. We greatly appreciate any donation, big or small as it will help us meet our goal to help Joe to be able to continue a better way of living. All money donated will go directly towards the purchase of a van and anything extra will help with the modifications to the home, larger doorways, deck with ramps to safely get Joe into the home, bathroom that would suit his disability if needed. All of this is with hopes of Joe being able to attend cookouts. Maybe a movie night or a simple dinner away from the facility. Thank you for your time, David,
