Van for the Klare Family
This is the fundraising campaign for Van for the Klare Famiy.
Our family is a unique one. To understand this, you need a bit of background on our brothers, Nicholas and Nathan, and their disease, Charcot-Marie-Tooth. At an early age, both boys were diagnosed with CMT. CMT is a neuro-muscular disease which causes their muscle tissue to deteriorate and their nerves to stop functioning. This disease has left both boys in wheelchairs. Our brothers inspire people around them daily. Nathan, the youngest, works in a doctor’s office as well as runs an independent business selling his art and doing freelance graphic design. Nicholas has continued running his business, Klare Lawn Service, with his older brother, Andrew, despite having to be lifted in and out of the truck and on and off his lawnmower. It is his passion.
And our parents have always made it clear to us that we should pursue our passions.
Over the last few years, however, it has become more and more difficult for our parents to transport our brothers. As of now, our parents lift both boys in and out of the car, which has taken a toll on both of their bodies. They can’t go on this way much longer. They are currently working with vocational rehab to see what can be done in the way of a handicapped accessible van; however, they have been told it could take up to a year to be approved, then a van would need to be purchased (new) and then adaptations made. That is IF they are approved. But as mentioned previously, the van was needed months, if not years, ago. We have started this campaign to help our parents, Bill and Paula Klare, raise money for a handicap accessible van.
Any help you could give would be much appreciated by the Klare family. The smallest amount given can change four people’s lives more than you could ever imagine. Thank you for all your help.

Dystonia is a disorder characterized by involuntary muscle contractions that cause slow repetitive movements or abnormal postures. The movements may be painful, and some individuals with dystonia may have a tremor or other neurologic features.
