Our first project was to give a wheelchair ramp to the Browne family for their 4 year old son Aiden. I was fortunate enough to hook up with David Myers from 101 Mobility of Great Philadelphia. He knew this family and also wanted to help them. Aiden has a myriad of health issues that confines him to a wheelchair. The Browne family lives in a bi-level home and it’s incredibly difficult to move Aiden in and out with the steps. David gave me their phone number.
It was a weekday evening at about 9pm when I called Aiden’s father, Adrian. Talk about a genuine and kind hearted man. I will never forget that phone call. We talked for about 30 minutes from father to father. His and Zipporah’s, Aiden’t mother, love was overwhelming. After speaking with Adrian I knew we had to help.
This is what Gethrr is about. It’s about people. It’s community. It’s us helping each other. And the feeling I have in my heart from helping this family is a feeling I’ve never felt before. And here we are, at just the very beginning of our journey together.
