Since the New York Times published the article about our head of programming Fredrick Brennan, who was violently robbed in the busy Port Authority Bus Terminal in NYC on New Years’ Day, and then was left alone to freeze in a snowstorm by a member of the NYPD, we have been flooded with requests from people wondering how they can help.
After speaking with Fredrick, we feel that the best way people can reach out to help with be with a financial contribution towards the purchase of a new wheelchair. As noted in the article, Fredrick was saving up his money so he could purchase a replacement to his current chair, which is in very poor condition. Fredrick is completely reliant on his power chair to get around everywhere he goes.
During the past few days, we have contacted various medical equipment providers to see if they would be willing to help with the purchase of a new wheelchair for Fredrick. One noted company, Ocean Home Health of New Jersey, graciously stepped forward and offered to get Fredrick into a new chair at a substantial discount. According to the company, a good quality wheelchair with the features he needs would run around $20,000.
The generous outpouring of support has touched Fredrick beyond words. He was shaken by the horrifying experiences of the past few weeks. You have no idea how much these wonderful offers to help, coming from total strangers, is doing for him. It is restoring his faith in the good of humanity and his courage to continue doing his best for himself and others.
If you would like to contribute to the cost of the new wheelchair, our company will be accepting the donations on his behalf.
