Freedom Chair for Barry Clay

Hey there everyone. I'm Barry Clay and I've been dealing with back and spinal cord issues since age 22. Recently (2013-15) I contracted MRSA which required an amputation of my left leg, below the knee, in 2014. Later during my rehab, MRSA was found to be in my left knee, which led to another amputation in 2015.  I am setting up this registry to ask help from friends and those in the church that I know on facebook. I'm asking for your help in acquiring a Freedom Forward Chair. The added features on this chair will make getting around ANYWHERE a non-issue. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

A GRIT Freedom Chair Forward will allow me to use my arms (not so much as my shoulders) to propel myself along and in that process, build up my endurance and arms. The cushioned ride will help in absorbing the bumps along the trails I have wanted to travel for several years. I have seen many pictures and videos of so many people that have had their lives changed by the Freedom Chair. Other reasons for wanting a Freedom Chair is it's unique design, rugged construction, and availability of parts and etc. I want a Freedom Chair Forward because it would be right for me.
