An ancient ramp used for another family member 20 years ago still is on the back of the house, which is a danger for him to attempt. I was chatting with Rick and he noticed our outdoor chicken coop and admired the work on it. I said I would ask if the man who built the coop could help us. Amazingly enough our volunteer from last year Eelco Grootjes, a structural engineer, has agreed to return to Chicago to build a new ramp. He is very good at recycling materials; however we will still need funds to build the ramp according to standards that allow Rick to use it.
In addition, Rick's driver's licence needs to be renewed. He has been driving modified cars since 1982; but needs as well as to modify his car so he can drive. GlennArt has committed to help him with the necessary paperwork to renew his licence. Yet he will need funds to install the hand controls.
