The Darrell Gwynn Foundation Wheelchair Donation Program
Since the organization was formed, the Darrell Gwynn Foundation, in conjunction with its partner Sunrise Medical, has been donating new, power wheelchairs to children and young adults in need across the country. The Foundation receives many requests from people asking for assistance in getting a wheelchair for themselves or a family member who cannot otherwise receive one. The cost of a new chair can be alarmingly expensive and coupled with the other numerous costs associated with spinal cord injuries and debilitating diseases, it can be troublesome to purchase a new wheelchair. On average, a power wheelchair can run approximately $10,000. Unfortunately, insurance does not always cover the expense.
