Hi. I am the mother of Jason Mackey who was born with Nemaline Myopathy
Neuromuscular Disease (one of the diseases covered by MDA). Jason is 13, is
in a wheelchair, has a trach and ventilator, and has home nursing care.
Each year we give back to our community in some way. We generally contribute
as much as we can save for: BACH (Brazoria County Association for Citizens
with Handicaps), The Pregnancy Help Center, MDA (Muscular Dystrophy
Association), and Salvation Army. In addition, we consistently give clothing
and household item donations to World In Need.
My family and I are asking for donations for the purchase of a wheelchair
van with lift. Any kind gesture from you would be welcome because we are a
low-income, disabled family who doesn’t make enough money to finance a van
on our own.
Thanks and regards,
