Mobility for Moses

Moses aka Dad suffers from degenerative disc and joint disease. Doctor's orders are to remain supine, not standing or sitting upright for more than 5-10 minutes at a time to avoid direct pressure on the spine. In spite of these limitations, Moses has been riding a refurbished bike along with the rest of his Carfree Family, but at cost of great pain. Even relatively short distances can cause him to lose feeling in limbs, leading to a dangerous riding situation. In spite of these limitations, Moses has lost nearly 120 pounds cycling and moved from the handicapped parking space to the bike rack. We think this is pretty good for someone whose former mobility device was an electric wheelchair.  Please help us raise the funds to put him on a recumbent trike by his birthday on April 4th! Thank you.
