“I am delighted that I have finally received my customized Permobil power wheelchair!
Thanks to a grant from Team Gleason, my chair also includes the ability to elevate. This feature allows me to be more independent by helping me get to a standing position to use my walker for short distances, including getting to the restroom from my living room or office. It also allows me to enjoy dinner with my wife Jennifer at our dining table and grab items off the shelf when I visit the local grocery or pharmacy.
I was also honored to have received a grant from Team Gleason to bank my voice for future use. Team Gleason has been a terrific partner in my ALS journey, and I will be forever grateful for their generosity in helping my life be just a little bit better with the circumstances I have been given.” – José F., Honolulu, HI
