“Free Wheelchair Mission and its supporters fill a gaping void in our world by providing an awesome solution for persons with disabilities around the globe. It’s an awesome experience to witness people sitting in their new, free wheelchair for the first time and view their giant smiles in person!
“We all need to spread the word and tell others about Free Wheelchair Mission, developers of a simple but unique way to completely change a life for less than $100.”
— Rick Haasch, President, MIC Systems & Software
