Dennis D. is a former resident of Avondale and Old Irving Park, and a former client and then board member of Hands to Help Ministries: http://www.handstohelpministries.org/
After a stroke in November 2014, he continued his job at the WIC Center in Logan Square until faced with pneumonia and heart failure in October 2015. Now living at a nursing home in Uptown, Dennis was recently denied coverage for an electronic wheelchair, which would greatly enhance his life, provide much more mobility and reduce the strain on his heart which is currently operating at 15%. We are seeking any leads on a used electronic wheelchair that might be sitting idle in someone’s garage or basement. If you have any leads, please send an e-mail to both Dennis and myself. I am a board member of Hands to Help Ministries. Thanks so much.
