Funds Raised for Milwaukee Family After Their Accessible Van is Stolen


On Christmas morning, the Figueroa family started their minivan to warm it up before heading out to visit family. They went inside to get a few gifts and their two boys, both of whom use wheelchairs. When they came outside again, their wheelchair accessible van was gone.

The Figueroa’s stolen van was originally donated by the Penfield Children’s Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Both of their sons, 7-year-old David and 4-year-old Raylan, visit the center for treatment. Imelda and Jose Figueroa only had their Toyota Sienna for a few months before it was stolen. The van was found just days later about six miles away from their home where the thieves set it on fire.

The Jett Foundation Celebrates Their 6th Jett Giving Fund Success

MobilityWorks was happy to join in the celebration with The Jett Foundation as they celebrated their 6th Jett Giving Fund success by gifting Liam McGourty and his family with a new wheelchair accessible minivan.

11-year old Liam McGourty was born with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and is mostly confined to a power chair. With a handicap accessible van, Liam can now safely and easily travel to doctor’s appointments, friend’s houses, school, and family events.

After the McGourty family, with the help of their local community, raised half the cost of the handicap accessible van for the Jett Giving Fund, Jett Foundation matched those funds and gifted the van to Liam and his family.

The Jett Giving Fund is a matching gift program that helps families affected by Duchenne who struggle to afford special equipment often not covered under insurance, such as handicap accessible vehicles, scooters, and rotating beds.

To learn more about the Jett Giving Fund and how you can help more kids like Liam get the equipment they need, please visit https://www.jettfoundation.org/jett-giving-fund/
