Highlighting Those In Need: Rita From Ohio

car donation applicant - Rita

1-800-Charity Cars, a non-profit car donation charity, are operators of the www.freecharitycars.org, site, where people in need of reliable transportation can apply for a free charity car nationwide. Today, we would like to highlight one of our car donation applicants to share with you the people with the need for reliable transportation.

Rita Sullivan has been a member of our vehicle distribution site since September 12, 2009, where she has applied for assistance in receiving an automobile. Here is a summary of her situation:

“I initially joined the free charity cars site to get a handicap accessible van to care for my son Jesse. My precious child passed away on June 3, 2010, and I had never posted anything about my own personal medical issues, as my primary focus was the needs of my son.

Since Jesse passed away I am no longer in need of a handicap accessible van. I did however remain with Free Charity Cars to get a vehicle for myself. I am in need of transportation to care for my own medical issues. I have osteoporosis, arthritis in my lower back, right shoulder, and no cartilage in my neck, knee has no cartilage, asthma, C.O.P.D, emphysema, and carpal tunnel in both hands. My doctor has informed me that I will need surgery.

I am in chronic pain daily, and have medical appointments regularly that I need to get to. I am on a limited income and cannot afford to purchase a vehicle myself. Getting a charity car would change my life. I would be able to get to my appointments, and take care of all my medical needs.”
