I am writing to thank Team Gleason for providing me with the Permobil Seat Elevator Grant. As you know I have been battling with ALS for the past 2 years and I have progressively become weaker and weaker and unable to move any of my limbs. I previously had a hand-operated wheelchair that I utilized to get around the house. However, as I have progressed further, I was unable to use my chair and this left me unable to access my living environment. I am so thankful for this grant because I was able to receive a wheelchair that I can now operate with my head. I am able to have a sense of autonomy and not be confined to my bed. This act of kindness you have bestowed upon me has greatly impacted my life for the better and words cannot express the amount of gratitude I have for this amazing organization. Team Gleason has been a great source of help throughout my journey with ALS and I will be forever grateful for the kindness and financial assistance you have provided me. My family and I are eternally grateful for the amazing opportunities you have provided us and so many others battling ALS.
