We are all about connecting individuals, groups and causes for the common good of our community. Check out this letter from Doug Moore, Med-Air President, to Bridging RVA's Ilya Grossman and John Sawyer. We are better together!
*Ilya and John,
We here at Med-Air cannot think of a better way to support our vets than with the repair of the power wheelchair for 67 year old veteran Mr. Joseph Newton at his home in Reedville. Mr. Newton is back on the move!!!
Med-Air donated the batteries and battery charger for Mr. Newton’s power wheelchair. Tyler Dufour drove two 100 mile round trips to Reedville to make this happen. Mr. Newton’s chair would not move and no other company or organization would step in to help him.
Ilya, your persistence as Mr. Newton’s advocate spurred us on here to find a way to help Mr. Newton who was caught in the health care system without a way out that did not involve resources that were not available to him.
Special thanks to Tyler DuFour whose repair and delivery van are pictured with a very happy Mr. Newton. Tyler spent more than six hours en route and with Mr. Newton and provided professional, caring service. Other Med-Air associates were happily involved as well in researching his situation. The company that provided the original power wheelchair went out of business and left Mr. Newton hanging.
Bridging RVA, you are making a difference. We here at Med-Air are glad to make this one veteran mobile again.
