    Hi!! I am in desperate need of a wheelchair for a few weeks to months and was hoping that someone in the tampa / moffitt hopital area has an old one they would let me have for a while.  if not, does anyone know where i can get one donated or for cheap?

    this is not for me, but a family member who is unable to walk right now due to an accident.

     

    thank you for your help with this.

      The only thing I can think of is Moffitt has a helpline called Cancer Answers.  The number is 1-888-663-3488. It can't hurt to give it a try.

       God Bless,
