Join us to raise $30,000 towards an accessible van for Pittsburgh Veteran Quadriplegic

When Navy Veteran Dan Hika dove into his swimming pool in the summer of 2012, he never dreamed he would injure his spinal cord and surface into the life of a C5-C6 complete quadriplegic. For the past six years, he has adjusted to a new normalcy of confinement to his bedroom, needing major help to go out for doctor visits. Azalea Charities’ Aid for Wounded Warriors has already partnered with Allegheny Records Destruction to build an accessible bedroom for Dan. Now we are raising funds to buy Dan a van that meets his special travel needs. The Department of Veterans Affairs will provide $30,000 to furnish adaptive equipment. We need to raise another $30,000 to purchase the van itself.

Azalea Charities and Allegheny Records Destruction have each donated $5,000
towards this cause. We need your help to raise another $20,000 to get Dan his van.
