The Barshay family lives on the Laning side of town in a home with several sets of stairs. That wasn’t a problem when they bought the house, but it is now because their 13-year-old son Connor has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a progressive muscular weakness disorder. The family needs to modify the home to make it wheelchair-friendly and Verona Together, a charity group known for its cornhole tournament fundraisers, is looking to make that affordable.

The Barshays need:

1. Wheelchair access to and from the house to help Connor come and go independently.

2. Bathroom modifications to make wheelchair access possible.

3. A wheelchair-accessible van to make visits to medical appointments easier.

4. Improved wheelchair access to the kitchen and other areas of the home. Connor loves cooking but the home now has tight doorways and sharp angles that make it difficult for Connor to get around in the house or outside to the family’s garden.

You can make a donation through Verona Together’s website or through its Facebook page. You can read about Connor’s passion for food and his challenges here.
