It has given me my freedom to travel independently. I can take myself shopping, to medical appointments, and to go places for leisure. My husband and I just completed a 6,000 plus mile trip. I have aggressive cancer andthis trip was high on my bucket list. Without the van entering and exiting a car would be tedious and I could not have taken my motorized wheelchair. I would have had to depend on my husband to push me in a transport chair. That would have been so very depressing.
