I know this type of question was somewhat covered in another thread, but we have an opportunity to buy a really decent wheelchair van at a good price. It has low mileage and is only 30k CDN. Does anyone know much about the above van?

This will probably be my last post on the forum. At the time of Eileen's funeral I weighed 122 lbs, I am now at 134 lbs. I'm not sure if it is just my nature or my strong belief in God, but even before the funeral, I felt that God did not want me to waste the rest of my life in grief. I made...
I’m a little over two years post diagnosis and was recently denied insurance coverage for a shower/commode chair. I am a federal employee and have been very happy with coverage thusfar (GEHA). As I prepare to appeal the denial, I’m wondering what others’ experiences have been with insurance...

We have United Healthcare Insurance.
January 2nd, I am planning to order whatever medical equipment my PALS needs.
What will insurance not cover?

I need my bathroom sooner that I thought. I'm uploading pictures of the bathroom I'm having done. Is there a way to modify it so it is safe and functional without knocking out all the tile. I ask because I'm getting my room set up and all my medical equipment is located...
It hasn't even been 2 weeks yet. Still expect to See Liz when I wake up. The Kids are doing Ok considering the situation. I have the spare room packed full of all the Medical equipment that had been in the Living room. And the Hospital Bed is still in our Bedroom. I need to get these things back...
