“My name is Chris Eisted. I suffer from a very rare and debilitating disease called “stiff person syndrome” that effects all of the muscles and nerves in my body. My medical insurance paid for a power wheel chair for me but wouldn't cover the cost of a lift to get my chair into the back of my truck. So I was pretty much stuck at home with no way to take my power wheel chair anywhere. I missed out on a lot functions with family and friends."
“I was told to contact Mission for Area People to see if they could help me with the cost of the lift. I made the call to Diana at Mission for Area People and she jumped right on it and put me in touch with Phil at Amigo Mobility. Diana helped me by donating money towards the lift and Phil at Amigo Mobility, who is also on the Board of Mission for Area People, discounted the cost of the lift made it possible for me to get the lift I needed."
