What is ALS?

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.

ALS takes away the ability for people to walk, talk, and breathe.  There is no cure for this disease yet.

Carol Godfrey, a volunteer for the ALS Association, organized donors to help the Woody family.

Lamar Woody lives with this degenerative disease, and now his family can ride to appointments and events together safely & in style.

We are so proud to be able to connect donors and families with disabilities who cannot afford this necessity.

As Carol related to us:

“The Woody’s are quite taken aback with the generosity of so many.  But we all know that the biggest gift goes to “the givers”, as we see the pictures of this lovely family getting to live life with ALS…how lovely was it of Daniel Goodman and his folks at Special Kids Fund and Magic Mobility to get involved as a 501c3 organization to aid all of our donors.  He has been just the most accommodating and easy to work with guy on the planet.  So grateful for his work on the Woody’s behalf. Special thanks to Cal Brooks of the ALS Association for helping to engage the resource of the ALS Association and help make the connection”

While we wait for a cure, MagicMobility Vans accepts donated vans and raises funds to support people needing wheelchair-accessible mobility. Let’s raise enough to give another family the independence they need!
