'Wheels to Help Me' Loan Programne

Available in the US and UK

Dealing with the heartbreak of DM is both stressful and costly. Helping your companion to cope with the paralysis that comes with the disease, by the use of special equipment can help your companion to have a better quality of life.

This equipment can include Wheelchairs (carts) special harnesses, boots, life vests, and ramps to help both you and your companion to be more mobile as the disease progresses.  These pieces of equipment can be very costly and in the end, their use can be short lived due to the progression of the paralysis and of the disease.


The Finding the Cure for DM Foundation's 'Wheels to Help Me' program is designed to help those with a fixed or limited income and are not able to afford the expense.
