REECE THOMSON GETS A NEW RIDE 6/12/2018 10:18:13 AM
Thanks to some amazing community support, 9 Year old Reese Thomson of Zurich can now get around unhindered with the help of her family's accessible van.
The Thomson's set up a campaign back in January to raise $58,000 dollars to buy a specialty Dodge Grand Caravan that had equipment to help Reese get her electric wheelchair in the van.
They managed to get enough money for a down payment, and last week they finally picked it up.
Reese's Mom Elena Thomson says that Reese is so excited to be able to ride in the new family vehicle
Reese lives with vanishing white matter disease, which confines her to an electric wheelchair.
Thomson adds that they are so thankful for the community support.
Thomson also says they purchased the van at Oxford Dodge in London, in case anyone else may be looking for an accessible van to help their family as well
