Maddy Needs A Ramp!

Hello and thanks for stopping by my page! My name is Maddy and I'm 27. I live with a degenerative disability called SMA Type 2 which has caused me to be wheelchair bound and a quadriplegic. I am so excited to say that I was recently able to purchase my first home in the small town of Irricana, Alberta. The newfound level of independence I have gained from this venture is nothing short of life changing. Like every house I have seen, this one also has some accessibility challenges. The current challenge I am facing is that my rear entryway to my backyard has a narrow sliding door along with a 4" lip. I need to get a small ramp installed as well as a wider, more accessible, door. I also need a large ramp to be built off of my deck that leads down to the main area of my yard so that I can easily drive my electric wheelchair completely in and out of my house. I currently am only able to use my electric wheelchair inside my home and I use my manual wheelchair outside. This requires a lot of maneuvering up and down stairs. Getting this renovation will increase my mobile independence tremendously. I am planning on getting financial assistance from the RAMP Program, but unfortunately they only cover up to $7500. After getting some quotes, I have recently learned that the cost of lumber and aluminum are at an all time high right now and the cost of these renovations are going to be nearly double what the RAMP Program can provide me with. So that leads me here and asking all of you wonderful, gorgeous, individuals for help to raise the rest of the money needed. I know times are tough right now, so I greatly appreciate any amount you could possibly provide. If you are not able to provide monetary assistance, please consider taking the time to share my story!

Thank you again and much love!
